Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady indicated that the duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving is more skilled than the former Miami Heat combination of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
“There’s no other dynamic duo that compares to K.D. (Durant) and Kyrie,” McGrady said. “Even if you look at what LeBron and D. Wade was, skill-wise, they still not touching them two boys.”
Durant and Irving are in their second year of playing together with the Brooklyn Nets. They’re currently facing the Boston Celtics in the playoffs, with the pair integral to any chance the Nets have of capturing an NBA title.
Last year, Durant and Irving failed to help the Nets get past the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals. That Nets defeat came in a dramatic seven-game series and was made more painful when the Bucks went on to capture the NBA title.
