What’s Kevin Durant's new strategy with the Golden State Warriors? Apparently, the coaches want him to do what he does best – take more shots.
During his tenure with the Oklahoma City Thunder, sinking shots beyond the arc were a specialty of Durant, which earned him a NBA MVP Award. However, with the varying three-point shot experts already on the Golden State Warriors, will this game plan really add any new aspects to the team?
According to Fox News, teammate Draymond Green had other advice for the new Warrior. "Yeah, I shot a lot today, and Draymond told me I wasn't aggressive enough," Durant told reporters recently.
Just taking shots is not enough in Green’s eyes. Aggression will be needed to defeat teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers this upcoming NBA season.
Durant led Oklahoma City to close victories with Russell Westbrook alongside him for eight years. They produced stunning victories in last year’s playoffs, only to be ousted later.
Durant went on to tell reporters, "My thing is, impose my will by scoring when we need it. I could do the other things, but I'm highlighted by my scoring and how efficient I can put the ball in the basket and try to search out good shots for our group."
The regular season of the NBA begins October 25.
