This surely will go over well with Warriors fans.
Kevin Durant recently conducted a Twitter Q&A through The Boardroom (@boardroom) official account.
When asked to name the five hardest players to guard, the two-time NBA Finals MVP went with LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams, Paul George and Joel Embiid.
He then circled back to add one more to the list:
I’m an idiot, I’m forgetting James Harden, I apologize https://t.co/RcD9ZHwDOt— The Boardroom (@boardroom) January 14, 2020
No Steph Curry, no Klay Thompson.
If these omissions bother you, follow this guy's lead:
KD hasn’t guarded Steph in 4 seasons, unless you’re counting the ASG. I’m not going to get worked up over this— Killjoy 🤔 (@KilljoyGSW) January 16, 2020
Correct. And even when KD played for the Oklahoma City Thunder, he didn't match up against Curry or Klay that often.
But then again:
KD didn’t put Steph Curry in his top-5 toughest players to guard list
Here’s 2 minutes of Steph giving Kevin Durant work: pic.twitter.com/aaoHnYj5XI— Chris Montano (@gswchris) January 16, 2020
Now carry on with your day.
