Kevin Durant criticized Steve Kerr earlier this month during an interview with the Wall Street Journal and said he didn't care for Kerr's motion offense.

Kerr responded to Durant during an interview with The Athletic and said he didn't have a problem with what he said.

"I wasn’t at all offended what Kevin said because it’s basically the truth," he explained. “You look at any system, I mean, I played the triangle with Michael Jordan. The offense ran a lot smoother all regular season and the first couple rounds of the playoffs than it did in the conference finals and Finals. It just did."

“That’s why guys like Michael Jordan and Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant are who they are," added Kerr. "They can transcend any defense. But defenses in the playoffs, deep in the playoffs, combined with the physicality of the game — where refs can’t possibly call a foul every time — means that superstars have to take over. No system is just going to dice a Finals defense up. You have to rely on individual play. I didn’t look at (his comment) as offensive."

On another note, how do you think The Nets will do with both Durant and Kyrie Irving?
