Kevin Durant Fires Back At Draymond Green Over Steph Curry Claim

Kevin Durant Fires Back At Draymond Green Over Steph Curry Claim

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant teamed up between 2016 and 2019 to win two NBA championships and make it to the Finals three times.

During that run, Durant took home two NBA Finals MVP trophies.

Curry has yet to win one.

This past week, Warriors star Draymond Green addressed why the inarguably greatest shooter of all time had never claimed a Finals MVP despite winning three titles and being in the finals five times.

“Steph Curry got double-teamed probably seven times the amount that KD did in a given series,” Green said.

When presented with this clip on Twitter, Durant had a strong response.

Durant is never one to let a perceived slight over the internet go unaddressed, so his response is not surprising. That said, Green opting to defend Curry against slander is similarly predictable.

Everyone involved behaved as expected.

While Durant has been relatively low-key thus far this offseason, off partying in Europe and whatnot, clearly he is still keeping close tabs on his former squad.

Obviously, regardless of the circumstances or who is to blame, Finals MVP is a glaring omission on Curry’s otherwise spotless record.

Will this be the year that changes? Can he lead the Warriors to another NBA championship and claim the one major individual accolade that has eluded him thus far?

Time will tell.
