For the first time since Kevin Durant chose the Golden State Warriors in free agency, he will be back on the same team as Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook in the 2017 NBA All-Star Game.
Duarnt and Westbrook played together for eight seasons in Oklahoma City from the 2008-09 season to the 2015-16 season. In that time, Durant saw Westbrook become famous for his explosive and ferocious dunks.
"Best in-game dunker would probably be ... uh, Westbrook," Durant said on ESPN's "The Jump."
Durant will start for the Western Conference, along with Warriors point guard Stephen Curry. Westbrook, who is averaging a triple-double this season, is coming off Steve Kerr's bench. Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will also start the game on the bench, rounding out Golden State's four All-Stars.
Westrbrook was asked about Durant Friday by the media, but instead turned to fashion with his answers.
How the two interract on the court, if Kerr puts them both on the floor at the same time, is a sight to be seen on Sunday in New Orleans.
