Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas has stressed that Kevin Durant must lead the Phoenix Suns to glory this season. Arenas believes that anything but winning the ring will be the biggest failure in Durant‘s career.
The NBA star departed the Brooklyn Nets to join the Suns after asking to be traded earlier this month. On his show ‘No Chill with Gilbert Arenas’ on Fubo Sports, Arenas explained why he believes that the Suns are the favorites to win the title this season.
“I don’t even know why we’re playing,” he declared.
“This is not even a question. You have [Durant and Devin Booker] that’s capable of 50, 60, 70 [points]. Both half-court players. Both mid-range players. Both players you can’t actually play one-on-one, they’ll eat you alive.
“They were having trouble scheming just for Booker himself.
“Now you just added arguably the best scorer in today’s game right now. Then you have -who can argue – the best assist-to-turnover ratio guard in NBA history in Chris Paul.
“If they don’t win, f**k the Nets‘ group. This would be the biggest failure for Kevin Durant.”
