Coach Kerr believes that Kevin Durant is more gifted than Michael Jordan when it comes to skills and game. He also gave a reasonable justification for his opinion. Coach Kerr said,
He just showed he’s the most talented basketball player on earth, if not of all-time. Honestly. He’s just so gifted. I loved coaching him, and I’m looking forward to doing so again. I know, I know. And I think he’s (Durant) more gifted, I really do. And that’s saying something, but Kevin is a different, an entirely different breed. I mean, 6-(foot)-11 with guard skills, unlimited 3-point range, passing, shot-blocking at the rim. It’s just stunning
Strong statement from Kerr 👀

Steve Kerr did not say that Kevin Durant is the GOAT. However, it is safe to agree that KD is gifted and is on another level in his career right now. Having a beat like Kevin on your team is a blessing and having him as an opponent is a nightmare. Kevin Durant will be seen in action next at the Tokyo Olympics representing Team USA. KD finished the playoffs with an incredible average of 34.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.
