Kevin Durant has heaped praise upon Jordan Poole for a slick move against the Los Angeles Lakers in pre-season.
Kevin Durant has praised Jordan Poole for coming up with a very slick move in his latest preseason outing. The Brooklyn Nets superstar was keeping up as the Golden State Warriors went up against the Los Angeles Lakers in pre-season, and it was one particular move by the currently trending Jordan Poole that caught Durant’s attention as he took to Twitter to post on it.
Poole came up with a brilliant yet silky maneuver against the Los Angeles Lakers as he went on a solo run breezing past opponents and capped it off with the smoothest of touches. The Golden State Warriors star was at his smoothest as he feinted past a couple of players, twirled the ball behind his back to dribble past the last man, and just calmly dinked it into the basket for two.
The maneuver where Poole left the Lakers chasing shadows instantly went viral in the NBA community on Twitter, and it did not take long before one of the most active NBA superstars on Twitter also caught up with the move.
Quoting the NBA official account’s tweet titled “goodness, Jordan Poole. Too smooth on NBA TV”, Durant gave his own take on the move.
What did Durant have to say about the move?
The former Golden State Warriors superstar was impressed.
Durant took to his Twitter as he quoted the NBA official account’s tweet and added: “Who thinks to do some shit like this #boynice” – a comment that showed how much the former Warriors star rated the move by one of the most promising stars in the league right now.
Despite his heroics as he racked up 25 points in 23 minutes, Poole could not help his team win as the Lakers came out on top – another blow to what has not exactly been a perfect preseason for the Warriors.
