Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant gave his stamp of approval to LeBron James' move to the Los Angeles Lakers.
In an interview with Marc Spears of The Undefeated, Durant says he "absolutely loved" James' choice and called his decision to head West a "perfect move."
“I loved it. I absolutely loved it. I thought it was the perfect decision, perfect move, did everything he was supposed to do in Cleveland. I think this is the perfect next step for him, and he’s kinda breaking down the barriers of what an NBA superstar is supposed to be. You feel like you’re just supposed to play it out in one spot. I think he did a good job of giving different chapters. I think it’s gonna make his book even more interesting when it’s done.”
Durant also touched on the arrival of DeMarcus Cousins, recent dinners with LeBron, and the Kawhi Leonard-DeMar DeRozan swap.
