The Brooklyn Nets are in wonderland right now. They have arguably the best player in the world in Kevin Durant. They have arguably the best player at drawing fouls the game has ever seen in James Harden. They even have arguably the best player to ever handle the ball in Kyrie Irving. With these three leading the ship, it has attracted some of the game’s greats such as LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin to come to Brooklyn.

Former Nets star Stephon Marbury recently chimed in on what the Nets have going on. Well, particularly Kevin Durant. On his way to averaging 23 PPG 8.1 APG and 3.1 RPG in 172 games, Marbury secured an All-Star appearance with the Nets in 2001. When the former guard appeared on the “Ball Don’t Stop” podcast he said, “Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan are the two best ever, but I’ve never seen anything like Kevin Durant.” His praise for Durant did not end there though:

“I remember watching Kevin Durant, his first game in college when he was with Texas. I called my brother and I was like, ‘yo, is this kid named Kevin Durant?’ So he’s a freshman. I said he would not be there. He won’t be there long. He’s crazy. I was like, ‘yo this is sick.’ So from then on, it’s basically been, it’s been the same movement. It’s just been, you know, better. We’ve never seen a guy at 6’10” handle the ball the way how he handles the basketball. I mean, it’s literally point guard skills and everything that he does from his cross from his, you know, his hesi everything you know, but the thing the thing that separates is he can shoot.
