Just because Kevin Durant now is a Net doesn't me that he and Steph Curry aren't still brothers.
The two superstars formed one of the most dynamic duos in NBA history. winning two titles and going to three straight NBA Finals during Durant's three-Odyssey with the Warriors.
After Curry broke his hand during Wednesday night's loss to the Phoenix Suns, Durant wished his former running mate a speedy recovery during an appearance on ESPN's "First Take."
"I mean luckily it wasn't anything more serious than that," Durant told Stephen A. Smith. "Especially, seeing Klay [Thompson] out for the whole season and myself, you know, out for the whole year. I'm sure he'll be back playing again but it was tough to see him break his hand on TV. You know, he's been doing so much and the team is still transitioning. It's a new group and a young group so he's trying to do so much, having him out is going to be tough for them to sustain. Hopefully, he gets back and gets healthy."
With Curry breaking his hand, the Warriors dynasty officially has been torn down. With Durant's exit and Curry and Thompson's injuries, the five-time defending Western Conference Warriors will now enter a different kind of season than in years past, focusing on growing their young players and building toward the future.
Durant is slated to miss the entire season as he rehabs from the ruptured Achilles he suffered in the NBA Finals. Thompson, likewise, is expected to miss the whole season with a torn ACL. There is no timetable for Curry's return, but expect the Warriors to be cautious with his recovery.
All three will be back in time, but this NBA season will look a lot different without three of the league's marquee stars.
