Kevin Durant Says He Has Been Studying DeMar DeRozan’s Footwork

Kevin Durant is arguably the best basketball player in the world, but, that doesn’t stop him from learning from his peers in the NBA. Always a humble hooper, Durant reveals that he’s been studying DeMar DeRozan’s footwork this summer. KD usually beats defenders off his length and athleticism, but he understands that if he can beat them by expending less energy it will make him that much more of a deadlier player.

“DeMar DeRozan probably got the best footwork I’ve seen in a long, long time.

“I’ve been trying to watch him to see how he does it. He’s just way more athletic than I am, first of all, so his body can move a little different, but his pace is amazing.

“He a guy I’ve been studying lately just because of his footwork. Every time I see him, I just try to look at his body moments and his footwork.

“I think that’s where I can get better—just trying to beat my defender just a little bit. Not just off of length and athleticism, but footwork.”
