Kevin Durant is fired up after new teammate Patty Mills went off on Slovenia in the third-place game of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. The Australian player dominated the European country to get his first Olympic medal in a historic moment.
After everything was said and done, Durant took to Instagram to share a moment with his teammates and coaches. Mills had a little cameo, with KD hyping him up ahead of next season. Now that he's a Brooklyn Net, Mills can help Steve Nash's team beat rivals.
Durant was close to Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka and Jayson Tatum, warning them of what's coming for the C's next campaign.
Durant (with his arm around Mills): “There’s gonna be problems for the Boston Celtics this year, I’m telling you!“
Tatum: “(Expletive) out of here!”
Udoka: “We know how to lock Patty’s (expletive) up.”
KD looks very confident in his team's chances to succeed next season after adding interesting pieces. They fell short to the champions Milwaukee Bucks this campaign, and it's time to get revenge.
The Nets are still a dangerous team, and as long as they have KD, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, they will be a threat for the rest of the league.
