Kevin Durant’s Perfect In Depth Explanation Of Beverley And The Clippers’ Defense On Him

 

We really should start asking more ‘real basketball’ questions to Kevin Durant, rather than the questions he gets mad at. This is incredibly insightful and Durant explains very well why he has been playing a lot more passive in terms of scoring than what we’re used to.

When the media behaves like actual journalists, Durant does come across as a genuinely insightful and knowledgeable person. I really love how he answered the question in detail while also being confident. We need more of this!

 

“They’re playing a gimmick defense which has been working. Locking everything on the perimeter, guys not even looking at the 3-point line, they’re just forcing guys inside the 3-point line. For us, when I get the ball in my spots, I’ve got a pest, Patrick Beverley, who is up underneath me, who I could definitely shoot over the top and score every time if it’s a one-on-one situation, but we’ve got a guy that’s dropping and helping and then we’ve got another guy that’s just sitting on me, waiting for me to dribble the basketball.

If I put the basketball on the floor, I can probably make 43 percent of my shots if I shoot them like that, but that’s not really going to do nothing for us – the outcome of the game, because we’ve got a nice flow. Everybody touching the rock, everybody shooting and scoring. I’m not going to get in the way of the game because I want to have a little back-and-forth with Patrick Beverley. I’m Kevin Durant. You know who I am.”
