The news that Kevin Durant was likely out for the majority of the 2019-20 NBA season with a ruptured Achilles has sent shockwaves throughout the NBA, especially among Durant's own Golden State Warriors, who are still trying to process the loss of their teammate. But thankfully they got a lighthearted question during Wednesday's media session and were asked if Durant is known as the third "Splash Brother."
"I think he is above and beyond a Splash Brother," Thompson said. "[Me and Steph] still can't rise up and shoot over any man on this Earth."
Durant was cooking early in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals against Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors, but blew a tire in the second quarter that looked more serious than a calf tweak. It was tough to see him go down when you absolutely knew he returned solely to help his team climb out of their hole.
While we may never see KD in a Warriors uniform ever again, it's clear that Curry and Thompson hold Durant in the highest esteem.
