Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets have one goal: to win the 2021 NBA Championship.
After dominating their first-round matchup against the Celtics, their next assignment has them facing off against the Milwaukee Bucks and the 2x MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Speaking of Giannis, Kevin Durant recently spoke very highly of him, calling the Greek Freak one of his favorite players to watch.
“Greek Freak. That is one guy I like to watch. I mean Steph Curry up obviously is the most fun player that played the game but he’s on my team, and I get to see him every day but Greek Freak is probably one I really really enjoy to watch.
He is a force and I have never seen anything like him and he could end up being the best player in the league,” said Durant.
Coming from a 2X Champion, and one of the best in the game, Giannis has got to feel good about receiving a compliment like that.
Indeed, his combination of skill and size make him a truly unique and formidable opponent, and Durant is setting an up-and-close look at him in this series.
And while Giannis is not yet in KD's tier, he is certainly capable of getting there if he continues to work on his game and helps lead his team to success.
