Is Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant intimidated by LeBron James’ decision to join the Los Angeles Lakers?
“Are you kidding me?” Durant said Thursday in Chicago. “Do you know where I’m from?”
His response was given with a half grin as he took a step back and drained a three-point shot at Kenwood High School in Hyde Park.
The 2018 NBA Finals MVP was in town to watch the Nike Girls’ Elite Youth Basketball League Championship at McCormick Place, and he made a surprise stop at Kenwood to run through a few drills with local Chicago basketball talent at the youth Rise Basketball camp.
The Lakers still have a long way to go in knocking off the Warriors in the West, with just three players with All-Star experience: James, Rajon Rondo and Luol Deng.
