Warriors’ forward Draymond Green had nothing but praise for former teammate Kevin Durant after their game on Saturday night.
Kevin Durant left the Golden State Warriors back in 2019, to form a duo with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. The farewell was said to be amicable between KD and the Warriors. Still, there were a lot who believed there was bad blood between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant.
KD left the Warriors back in 2019, last night was the first time he faced Draymond on the court. There were a lot of sparks expected and the possibility of an altercation, but nothing of the sort happened.
Durant was seen getting along pretty well with his former teammates, and we got to know that he was helping Klay with his rehab as well.
“He was unstoppable, and he still is”: Draymond Green on Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant has been playing at a high level ever since he made his way back from the Achilles injury. Durant has been leading the Nets, averaging 29 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game on 52.4% shooting.
KD is a prominent figure in the MVP conversation as well. It should be interesting to see what Durant and his Nets can achieve this season. People have the Nets as a de facto favorite to emerge from the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Their lack of a big man might be a problem against the Sixers, but their offensive firepower is too good to be kept quiet 4 times in 7 games.
