After all of their wheeling and dealing in the offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers look like the best team in the Western Conference but one NBA star would like to remind you that looks aren’t always everything.
Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant in an interview with Yahoo’s Marc Spears decided to remind some folks that the games still need to be played:
“People outside, fans, media, of course they are going to say [the Lakers are the favorites] because on paper they have the best lineup in the league. But you still got to play the games. We respect everybody. We are going to go through the league respecting everybody as well.”
“We already view ourselves as an elite team, but we have to prove it again. Last year is over with.”
