Hard work beats talent when talent is on or near the same level. No matter how hard I work, I won't be as effective an NBA player as your favorite team's laziest, most uncaring and unskilled player.

But that goes without saying. And this is what Durant meant, just didn't describe it verbatim to that extent.

Well its like back in the day laker fans were split. One group was for Odom and the other group wanted him gone.

The pro odom group said "he's so talented"
the against group said "Whats talent gonna do for us if he doesnt play hard"

Yes, I've heard many good but very generic sayings similar to this.
