Kevin Durant hopped into a Twitter Spaces discussion on Friday to debate whether he is one of the five best players in the NBA. The Phoenix Suns star complained about how fans determine a player’s value and more.
“I just think how y’all even look at the game is whack as f–k,” Durant said. “You factor in team success when you talking about players. I just think how y’all consume the game is trash, like are you good or not? I mean some things could be that simple. Are you just good or not? I mean, a lot of people have seen it for a long time brother and it’s OK. These lists don’t really mean nothing anyway, so why are you getting so upset about ’em?”

Users were excited to see Durant so willing to speak with fans. “It’s so cool KD just talks ball with literally anybody, even with people that say he’s not Top 5,” one user tweeted. Another posted: “Regardless of what you think about him I think it’s fire that a generational talent interacts with fans so consistently.”
Despite his comments on the relationship between a team’s success and a player’s skill, Durant has taken home two titles in his career. While the Phoenix Suns and Brooklyn Nets haven’t achieved Finals success with Durant, the former MVP did win two championships with the Golden State Warriors. He won the Finals MVP both times. He also won the MVP award in 2014 while still a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
