Kevin Durant Admits It’s Hard to See Lebron James Everyday

Since Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh are my favorite players, it seems fitting that they share some qualities. They have similar heights and weights, not afraid to cry in public over a loss, and they’re both eloquent and candid when talking to the media. 

This week Durant talked about whether it bothers him to see Lebron James during Olympic Team practices after having lost to him in the NBA finals not even a month ago. Durant was honest:

“It does. It does, but what can I do?” Durant said Tuesday. “He’s my teammate now. I’m a team player. I can’t let that affect this. This is bigger than that. It’s tough to lose in the finals and play the guy you’ve been going up against for five games who beat you. So me, I’m just going to get over it, still be a great teammate, come out and play hard.”

I can’t wait to see this team play together. 
The full olympic basketball competition schedule has been released. You can look at it (and plan your time around it!) here. 
For those who don’t know, the Oklahoma Thunder have 3 players participating in the Olympic Games. Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden for the USA. And Serge Ibaka representing Spain (along with Lakers Pau Gasol). Ibaka has gone on record saying he thinks Spain’s team is just as talented as America’s.
