ClutchPoints: Top surgeon expects Nets’ Kevin Durant to return at 90-100% of his former self, says KD has better chances than Wizards’ John Wall.https://clutchpoints.com/nets-news-top-surgeon-expects-kevin-durant-return-90-100-percent-former-self-says-kd-has-better-chances-than-wizards-john-wall/
“A point guard plays a different kind of game than Kevin Durant does,” noted Dr. Weinfeld. “An explosive type athlete, his demand is different than that of Kevin Durant’s. You talk about odds of coming back to where he was, I think Durant’s odds are better than an athlete like John Wall whose whole game is quickness and explosiveness. He [Wall] counts much more on those muscles being exactly where they need to be as opposed to a player like Durant and his style.”
Well, we knew he would come back at maybe 80% of his former self. But, I wonder what that would equate to on the court as Wall does rely on speed and cuts a lot. Would it mean that an average opposing guard could be able to keep Wall in front of him, and in check? If yes, then Wall's value could be greatly diminished. I really hope it is not the case.
