Adding Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors made their offense a whole different juggernaut, but at its core, it only works to a certain point...according to Durant.

KD's criticism of the Warriors' offense didn't sound malicious, but at the end of the day, the system just didn't suit Durant's game. KD's former teammate, Steph Curry, on the other hand, doesn't worry about the schemes head coach Steve Kerr runs. For Curry, the end result of an NBA championship is what matters most.

Yeah, Kevin, how'd that iso ball work out for you in OKC? Ah, that's right. You blew a 3-1 lead to the Warriors and then signed with them a few months later.

While this was definitely a response that might be taken out of context, it's just not in Curry's personality to publicly take a subtle shot at Durant and infer anything else, so he's probably just emphasizing the importance of winning over worrying about how to get there.

But we'll take any storylines to heat up future Durant vs. Golden State battles.

Those matchups will likely have to wait until the 2020-21 season though, since Brooklyn and Golden State only play twice a year and Durant is expected to miss the entirety of this season while recovering from a ruptured Achilles.

Nonetheless, we'll see if KD has a response, because, you know, he always does.
