Kevin Durant had his fair share of critics when he decided to join the Golden State Warriors in the summer of 2016.

Regardless of the opinion you may have, the move worked out, as Durant helped the Warriors to an NBA Championship in June.

The former NBA MVP joined The Ringer podcast with Bill Simmons over the weekend and had plenty to say about the Timberwolves.

Although the team is loaded with players who can score, Durant thinks there may be too many cooks in the kitchen in Minnesota: 

“Now Teague. Can’t really shoot that well but he can play. He need the ball though. And Jimmy. He can shoot it, but he need a rhythm so he need the ball, too. Wiggins: He the same way. He need the ball. They can all score. They all good, but somebody gotta give up something.”

Durant makes a good point here. Jeff Teague, Jimmy Butler, Andrew Wiggins, and Karl-Anthony Towns are all players who excel with the ball in their hands.

But whether they like it or not, someone is going to have to take a back seat.

Although Butler was the prized possession of the offseason, Durant believes he should be facilitating while Towns is the player the team needs to get the ball to.

Durant also proclaimed that Butler was "hurt" by the fact Chicago traded him. The full interview can be found here.
