LeBron James and Kevin Durant have seen a lot of each other so far this year. Even after having a fierce faceoff in the NBA Finals, they still teamed up to win an Olympic gold medal this summer.
To further that, they most recently trained together in what James refers to as "hell week."
Give Durant some props here: More than anything, he has plenty to learn from LeBron. James has been through a lot in the past few years both on and off the court.
We all know that Durant is still a budding star, but training with a player who just bested him in the Finals shows a lot of maturity and desire to improve on his part. Perhaps this could be what is needed to elevate him to the next level.
As for James, there really isn't much he can learn from the younger Durant. We could sit here and say the long ball, but LeBron has shown vast improvement, specifically from mid range.
However, that doesn't mean he can't pick up a few new tricks along the way.
Let's check out just how these two can make each other better, maybe even on a path of meeting once again in the NBA Finals.
