Kevin Durant Says Steph Curry Is Better Than Russell Westbrook
Kevin Durant says Steph Curry is better than Russell Westbrook in a new interview.
Durant recently appeared on an episode of How Hungry Are You, a show where his former OKC Thunder teammate Serge Ibaka cooks unusual foods for entertainers and athletes.
While on the show, over a delicious cooked snake, Ibaka asked Durant who was better: ex-Thunder teammate Westbrook or ex-Golden State Warriors teammate Curry.
Whereas some may have tried to sidestep a question that would inevitably leave someone’s feelings hurt, Durant felt no such obligation.
“Steph Curry,” Durant replied to the question.
“He can shoot better.”
For what it is worth, the respect between Durant and Curry is mutual.
“The three years that we had were special,” Curry said.
“With K.D., we had three straight Finals appearances. We won two of them.
“And we accomplished a lot as a group. Everybody talks about the amount of time we had on that team, but that doesn’t mean you can figure it out on the court and that you put all the pieces together to be successful.
“I’m really proud of what we accomplished.”
The Nets will face the Warriors and Rockets twice this year, but unfortunately Durant is likely out all season with injury.
