Kevin Durant speaks out on Steph Curry and Klay Thompson as Nets celebrate victory over Warriors

Kevin Durant has named Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as the greatest teammates he's ever played with. On the recent episode of  "All The Smoke" Podcast with former Warriors Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Kevin Durant said: "It's a tie between Steph [Curry] and [Russell Westbrook]. It's got to be. 'Cuz Russ, I never, ever feared that he was going to lose a matchup. ... One thing I didn't ever have to worry about was Russ. Having that comfort and knowing I could have that ease coming into the game from the point guard, it just made my life easier. And I felt the same way with Steph."  "I know for a fact that no point guard wants to guard him," Durant said of Curry, "'cuz he ain't going to stop moving, so that's going to take a little bit of energy from 'em. And he goin' play with that dog, where it's like he's trying to destroy you with scoring. And our game plan was to get him open at all times, and he's not gonna stop. And so I can rely ... when you can rely on people -- damn, and Klay [Thompson], too. Gotta put Klay in there with them two. "They're all the same type. They got the dog. Klay got the dog. Like, authentically ... he's an authentic dog. Like, knows his role. 'I'm gonna knock down this trey-ball, I'm gonna get to the cup here and there, but I'm locking up the guy in front of me.'" "Those three," Durant continued, "it's a tie between those three as my favorites, because they made my life way easier mentally."  Durant joined Brooklyn Nets in the summer of 2019 from Golden State Warriors. On Wednesday, Nets played against Warriors and won with a 129-88 score. source - Yahoo Sports
