Kevin Durant on working out with John Wall: 'He looked amazing'


Like John Wall, Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant has spent his offseason rehabbing an Achilles injury. During his time training for the upcoming season, Durant got together with Kyrie Irving, Wall, and other stars to run through drills and exhibitions.

Durant's assessment of Wall, from a first hand account, will excite Wizards fans everywhere.

"He looked amazing to me. He looked great," Durant said during day one of Media Week. "I know he wants to go out there and play great basketball."

Come December 13, Washington's first preseason game against the Nets, it will have been 716 days since Wall has played in an NBA contest.

“I feel young to be honest,” Wall told NBC Sports Washington in October. “I hooped today and I told [McLean] I didn’t even feel like I played today. You know, that’s the most important thing to me just locking in to have my body prepared for a whole season no matter how many minutes I play.”
