The marriage of Kevin Durant and Steph Curry was a fruitful one, with two championships in three years.
It probably would have been three for three if KD didn’t suffer a devastating Achilles injury in the 2019 playoffs.
Durant will sit out the 2019-2020 season as a member of the Brooklyn Nets. Curry spoke on losing his Warriors wingman
“I mean, the three years that we had were special,” he told the Mercury News. “With KD, we had three straight Finals appearances. We won two of them, and we accomplished a lot as a group. Everybody talks about the amount of talent that we had on our team, but that doesn’t guarantee that you can figure out on the court that you can put all the pieces together to be successful. I’m really proud of what we accomplished. The beauty of free agency is everybody has a decision, everybody has a choice. You want to find your happiness wherever that is. The beauty of the NBA is everybody has that decision at some point, especially guys that deserve it, like K and other top free agents. I like to look at what we accomplished and focus on that and be extremely proud of this run that we had. Now we are going to have to recreate it in terms of what it means going forward.”
There had been talk that Durant left GS because he thought he was in Curry’s shadow.
Who do you think is more likely to win another title, Durant or Curry?
