While guesting on the Bill Simmons Podcast, Durant called his former Team USA teammate’s footwork “the best I’ve seen in a long time” (starting at 38:22):
“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.”
