Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors get ready before taking on the LA Lakers at Staples Center.

Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry spent three seasons together in Oakland. They are one of the most dominant teams of all time, reaching 3 consecutive NBA Finals and winning 2 championships. Durant was the Finals MVP for both of those titles. After a two-year hiatus from the post-season, this year the Warriors won yet another title as Curry won the first Finals MVP award of his career.

While Curry’s entire performance in the NBA Finals was remarkable, his game in Game 4 changed the series. Trying to avoid a 3-1 defeat to the Boston Celtics, Curry scored a superb 43 points, 10 rebounds en route at TD Garden to equalize the series 2-2. On a recent episode of his podcast, “The ETCs,” Durant called Curry’s Game 4 performance in this year’s NBA Finals one of the best performances of all time.

“Game 4 is an icon for me. It’s like more than just winning. That game right there was like, “Okay, this is one of the best games we’ve ever seen,” Durant said on June 24.

“In that environment, the shots he took… the bounces. It was recovery for me; playing with Steph, that’s how I know he’s super, super attached when he’s on the heavy board. Get one through someone’s back [offensive rebound]it’s like, yo, he really wants this. “

Durant is reminiscent of time with warriors

Durant also admitted that he was able to watch the Warriors run to their fourth title from a more unique perspective than anyone else. Note that since he’s played with Golden State for three seasons, he already knows what they’re up to, which makes the game even more interesting to watch for him.

“And I was in that dressing room, so I just came back to mind like, ‘Okay, I know what they’re thinking at this point,'” Durant continued. “So it was a pleasure to be in that game, and he made it fun for everyone, just the shots he did and the way he led them.”

Durant Unfazed by Kyrie Irving Drama

During the podcast, Durant also discussed the upcoming contract of his Nets co-star Kyrie Irving. Both are expected to return to the franchise next season to atone for their disappointing playoff loss in 2022. Especially since they will finally get the chance to play against Ben Simmons three-time All- Star, who was acquired by the team in February.

However, Irving has yet to choose the final year of his contract for next season, and the deadline is fast approaching. Despite all the movies centered around his co-star, Durant doesn’t seem too worried about the looming decision he and the Nets face Kyrie.

“I just let things happen and see what happens. No matter what happens, the friendship will be there,” Durant said.

Irving has four days left to decide if he opts to play the final year of his contract with the Nets. It was a decision that could change the entire landscape of the NBA.
