Caris LeVert reveals 2017 advice from Warriors’ Kevin Durant

The Brooklyn Nets were defeated quite handily by the Philadelphia 76ers in the two teams’ first round Eastern Conference Playoffs matchup by a final margin of four games to one.

Despite winning the first game, the Nets were unable to pull another game out and bowed out of their first playoffs since the 2014-15 season.

Even though they only notched on game this postseason, the Nets are ahead of schedule in terms of its rebuild, despite not having their draft pick for multiple years as they slogged through 21-win, 20-win and 28-win seasons in consecutive years.

One extremely bright spot of this season was Caris LeVert, who acquitted himself well during the playoffs and often looked like the Nets’ best player – looking like a far more lethal on-ball scorer and ballhandler than the team’s lone All-Star, injury replacement D’Angelo Russell.

LeVert was recently interviewed by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and quoted by Anthony Puccio of SB Nation’s Nets Daily blog regarding the advice that LeVert received from Kevin Durant in the 2017 offseason:

As you can see, Durant extolled the virtues of focusing on the game of basketball, saying that everything else will fall into place.

Let’s hope that’s the case for LeVert, as he certainly flashed a lot of potential during the playoffs for an extremely productive and entertaining career.
