You can like someone off the court, that doesn’t mean on the court everything is peaches and cream, especially when you have two alpha males playing.
You can make an argument that Westbrook and KD are two of the best five players in the NBA, but that didn’t always translate to fluid basketball.
If you believe this report from Bleacher Report it is one of the reasons KD left.
“Ultimately he got frustrated and felt that they had plateaued,” Beck’s source said. “(Donovan) came in, and he still had the same issues that he had with Russ under (former head coach Scott Brooks). The offense didn’t change much. He still had to take a ton of contested shots every game; and that’s when he had the ball at all.”
“He’s never going to have a game in Golden State where Steve Kerr has to say at halftime, ‘You guys need to get Kevin the ball,’ which happened in OKC,” the source added.
The fluidity of the Warriors offense is attractive to Durant and I don’t think you are going to see a decrease in his scoring, if anything it might increase in Golden State.
