“If you said, ‘Oh, KD is coming back and we’re going to play with him,’ I’ve had so much fun playing with him these three years, I’d say, ‘Hell, yeah! ‘” Curry said. Then you have to think: what does this actually mean? What does it look like?
“You tell me that I play with [current Warriors teammates Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, and Draymond Green], I’m like, ‘Hell, yeah!’ There are all kinds of emotions and things that happen to the league.
“If someone says you’re not having this conversation – no disrespect to anyone on our team – but you don’t know how things work. But you also understand, like, if we fire this stuff, I have full confidence in my team that we can win it again, as built.
Durant previously won back-to-back titles playing with the Warriors before abruptly leaving for Brooklyn in 2019.
The Nets star has gone through a saga this offseason after asking for a trade, having a rumored retirement and reportedly asking Nets owner Joe Tsai to fire the brass from Brooklyn.
Curry addressed the Durant saga at some point in July, calling a potential Durant trade part of the “rumor mill.”
And after months of tension, the 12-time NBA All-Star said in late August he would return to Brooklyn next season.
Curry told Rolling Stone that there had been an internal conversation between the Warriors about bringing Durant back to San Francisco.
“I never hesitated. The idea of playing with KD and knowing who he is as a person, of our history over these three years, I think KD is a very good guy. I think it’s misunderstood,” Curry said.
“I think there were certain things that happened in his life that affected his ability to trust the people around him, in the sense of making him feel safe at all times. So all of those things, I understand, having played with him and got to know him. I love this guy.
