Kevin Durant is ...
... really good at basketball.
But that doesn't mean he has mastered every aspect of the game.
"I still gotta get better at setting screens and moving off the ball a little bit, but I'm glad I still got some room to grow in that area," Durant told Greg Papa on Bonta Hill on 95.7 The Game. "I played a lot of pickup ball this summer -- moreso than I ever played -- and that's something I thought about running up into screens.
"I'm like, 'Let me hit this guy now.' Whereas before, I was slipping out of screens trying to get me a shot."
Durant is absolutely right.
It's well documented how Steph Curry does a fantastic job of setting picks (particularly back screens). In many instances, two defenders stay attached to Curry, and a teammate gets a wide open shot or dunk.

It's probably safe to assume that the Warriors' coaching staff has been talking to Durant about becoming a better screener over the past two seasons. And it sounds like he's ready to make it happen.
"It's only gonna help our team," Durant added.
