When Budden said that he’d hoped Durant would be in New York for the podcast, the Nets star replied that he was in California since “the Nets (are) out here working out, so I had to stay. A few of us, four or five of us, out here.” Durant, Irving and some other Nets – of both the Brooklyn and Long Island variety, like Spencer Dinwiddie, Devin Cannady and Jaylen Hands – have been working out in Los Angeles. Director of player development Adam Harrington, Durant’s longtime shooting coach, was with them, with Blake Griffin and Allonzo Trier joining in training and playing full-court.
Before the NBA season was suspended, Durant was playing in games of three-on-four and four-on-four with the Nets’ “extra work group” while he rehabbed his Achilles injury. Guard Theo Pinson, who was part of those sessions, said Durant was “unguardable,” and general manager Sean Marks said Durant “looked like Kevin Durant” when he observed him. Cannady said his observations from this summer mirror those. “I can confirm what all those guys said,” Cannady said. “He’s one of the most talented, special players I’ve ever seen in person. He looks healthy. He looks extremely good.”
Cannady asked Irving for advice after that game in which he gave up five straight baskets to him. “Look man, I’m trying to stop you and I can’t,” Cannady told him. “How is it that you have the ball so loose on a string and tight at the same time? How can I have more mobility with my dribble so it’s not so tight? As a shooter, how can I use my dribble to set me up?” Irving walked Cannady through how he’s worked on his legendary handles and gave Cannady a number of drills to do, ones that Irving regularly does himself. Cannady has done those daily since.
