NBA: ‘Kevin Durant More Gifted than Michael Jordan’ Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr

Kevin Durant vs Michael Jordan Stats NBA: Golden State Warriors’ head coach and former teammate of Michael Jordan from the golden era of the Chicago Bulls has made a huge statement by calling Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant ‘more gifted’ than Air Jordan.

Recently, Kevin Durant got into a Twitter beef with Michael Jordan’s right-hand man Scottie Pippen when he compared Durant to LeBron James.

I think he’s more gifted, I really do,” Kerr said. “That’s saying something, but Kevin is a different … entirely different breed. He’s 6-11 with guard skills, unlimited 3-point range, passing, shot-blocking — his shot-blocking at the rim, it’s just stunning. Watching him this year was really, really gratifying to see.”
