Kevin Durant To Play 1-On-1 Against LeBron, Kawhi, Kyrie, Steph

Kevin Durant is just one of the many well-known players who are nearly guaranteed to be on Team USA’s star-studded roster at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Players competing against one another one-on-one during Team USA practice has become a custom by now, and Durant is looking forward to it.

Durant stated, “Those who practice and then practice some more are the best as long as they help you get better,” on The Boardroom. “So, obviously (LeBron James) gonna wanna play.”

After that, Durant said he would like to face players like Paul George, Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, and Kawhi Leonard. The 35-year-old is excited to play against the younger players, including as Joel Embiid, Devin Booker, and Anthony Edwards, but he isn’t sure if he will take on Joel Tatum.

Durant said, “I don’t know about Joel ones.” “I’m not sure if I can go one-on-one with him. He may very well give me a shoulder blow.”

I don’t believe that a matchup between Durant and Embiid would be fair. The Phoenix Suns player might find the reigning MVP to be a little too strong, and he hinted that a simple shoulder barge might be plenty. But we can only hope that we get to witness him taking on the rest of the roster; that should be quite the sight.

Durant’s teammate at the 2016 Rio Olympics was DeMar DeRozan. DeRozan disclosed that Durant’s practice goal back then was to play one-on-one.

“I used to watch them all play one-on-one while I sat there.” Every time, that m*****f****** was hooping. Kevin Durant will not give up; you must leave the court.”

In response to DeRozan’s remark, Durant said those practices were necessary for greatness. Paul George continued by saying that during practice, the Suns star was always the one to start these competitions. As he previously stated, Durant doesn’t do it to establish his superiority over others; rather, he does it to find out where he stands.
