Kevin Durant: Caris LeVert Can 'For Sure' Be Nets' Third Star 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Sep 15, 2020 5:48 am

Kevin Durant recently praised Caris LeVert, saying that the 26-year-old wing player could compliment himself and Kyrie Irving as the third star of the Brooklyn Nets.


“I think Caris is that perfect guy for us to, any given night he can lead us in scoring or lead us in assists or he can control the offense or we can go to him in the post in a matchup. 


"I feel like he has the tools to do everything on the basketball court. On our team, we play unselfishly, and we’ve got guys that can play off the basketball so on any given night anybody can be the star," said Durant on The Old Man and the Three podcast (h/t Ian Begley of SNY). 


Durant added that LeVert could “for sure” be the team's third star.


LeVert averaged 18.7 points and 4.2 rebounds last season.

KD may have just triggered the ultimate motivation for LeVert to become the #1 option.

"On our team we play unselfishly." What is KD talking about? He and Irving have yet to suit up. Nobody has any idea how they will play. KD says some weird ish.

Translation: "Sean you better get us a real 3rd star before the start of next season or...[points to picture of Kenny Atkinson while making the slit throat sign]"

Maybe he's the second star. The ego of these guys.
