Durant's frail ass would flounder in the handchecking era. And LOL @ thinking he develops in the same way he did in Seattle/OKC.
As Phil said, he made Kobe do things even Michael wasn't responsible for on those Laker teams. LOL @ thinking Durant would able to be the de facto PG and run the offense like Godbe did during the first threepeat.
