Simply Durant: KD Leading GSW Should be the New Normal

Kevin Durant dunk



And that was visible in the Warriors' comeback win against the Spurs

Hate him all you want but Kevin Durant appears to be doing just fine by doing what he does best: winning.

Thanks to Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors were able to pull off a come-from-behind victory over the still-stumbling San Antonio Spurs, 110-107- in a game that saw Steph Curry tweaking his right ankle before heading out for good with barely 10 minutes left in the opening quarter.

For a San Antonio team that has been missing its own star in Kawhi Leonard, Curry's absence throughout the remaining of the game was something that helped the Spurs take the lead until late in the 4th quarter when something crazy erupted.

That something crazy is none other than Kevin Durant.

It started right after the Spurs went up by 8 points after a dunk Dejounte Murray with under 5 minutes left in the game.

First, Durant was fouled while shooting a three. Swish goes the three freebies. From that moment, KD wrecked havoc as he scored 15 of the final 19 points of the Warriors, finishing the game with 37 points to go along with 11 rebounds and 4 blocked shots. He went 14 for 26 from the field including a 4 for 7 shooting from the three-point line.


Question: Are the Warriors better with KD leading them?

Sure, fans are enjoying watching Steph Curry while he makes his defenders dance and slip on the court. Sure, he can shoot and make threes from horribly long distance but in the own words of Kevin Durant, the game is simplified without Curry. Mathematically speaking, both KD and Curry are great scorers, both averaging 26 points per game this season. But if we are to look beyond the numbers, beyond the head-banging Math, the defending champions are actually winning with KD leading them to victory because he has been a legitimate scorer *slash* slasher *slash* shooter. Okay, Curry can do all three but KD just does it better, right?

KD is also shooting better, at 52% from the field including 43% from the three-point line- both are higher than Curry's percentages. 

So frankly speaking, the Warriors will be better if Kevin Durant will become the team's main offensive weapon with or without Steph Curry in the line-up. But that doesn't mean that Curry's minutes should be decreased. No. Just make Durant the main go-to-guy and who knows, they might be able to catch up with the Houston Rockets for the best record in the NBA.


Conclusion

While some fans are calling Kevin Durant a snake because he joined the Warriors- which for some, was the easiest way for KD to win a championship, let's not forget one thing: Kevin Durant is an MVP even before he joined the Warriors so he's already a legitimate winner who only needed a good team to finally win a championship. And, it was the Warriors who benefited more when they got Kevin Durant after blowing a 3-1 series lead during the 2016 NBA Finals.
