After last night’s loss to the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant were asked if they think Steph Curry is an underrated defender. Westbrook reacted like he’d just been asked if he likes to shop at T.J. Maxx.
To be fair, Curry is a decent defender. He’s a pest with quick hands that help him get a lot of steals, but come on. Of course Westbrook is going to laugh at a question like that, because when you’re a human stick of dynamite, there’s no sense in sorting defenders into categories like “good,” “bad,” or “underrated.” They’re all just there to get blown up.
