Bam Adebayo Names Kevin Durant As the Hardest to Guard

During an appearance on Laces Out, DPOY candidate Bam Adebayo was asked who he thought was the toughest player to guard in the League today.

As the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Eastern Conference playoffs, the Miami Heat will possibly play against the Brooklyn Nets if the Nets win their Play-In tournament matchups. The Nets are headlined by perhaps the greatest scorer of his generation, Kevin Durant. Durant is also the same player Adebayo says is the toughest to match up with on defense.

“Hardest dude to guard? I would say Kevin Durant,” Adebayo said. “I mean, 7-foot and can do the things that he do, like that’s not an easy matchup for anybody at any moment on the court.”

Durant is again one of the most gifted and smooth scorers in the history of the Association. The Slim Reaper has posted 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per game this season and has finished games with 50+ three times, including dropping a career-high 55 points against the Hawks last weekend. KD has also scored at least 30 points 24 times this season.

The Heat (52-28) will host the Hawks (42-38) on Friday, and the Nets (42-38) take on the Cavs (43-37) in Barclays Center to end their final back-to-back series of the season on Thursday.
