Warriors' Kevin Durant enjoys watching film of "best friend" Kyrie Irving originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant is a student of basketball. When he's not playing basketball and winning championships, he's probably watching basketball, either a live game or film on some of his favorite players. In a recent interview with The Athletic's Shams Charania, Durant revealed three players who've really impressed him while watching film, and one of them is Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving.
ESPN's Stephen A. Smith cited "very, very well-connected" sources in reporting that the Los Angeles Clippers have a legitimate shot of acquiring Kevin Durant when he's a free agent next year.
Kevin Durant, if he leaves the Golden State Warriors next summer, likely will be the most sought after free agent since LeBron James went to the Miami Heat in 2010.
David West used to be a calming influence in the Golden State Warriors locker room. The former two-time All-Star big man retired in August after a long career, and the Warriors are perhaps worse off because of it. Draymond Green and Kevin Durant have famously feuded with each other, resulting in a blow up during a game against the Clippers which left Green suspended and Durant miffed.
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is set to return against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday after missing 11 straight games with a sprained toe. Green's return will give the two-time defending NBA champion Warriors their "core four" along with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson for the first time in more than a month. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said in comments reported by ESPN that he's hoping Green will spark the Warriors defense.
