 Cole responded to Durants comments: Hes a Jordan player and hes right.


I dont feel offended by what Durant said because its basically true, Cole said. You go to study any system, like the triangle offensive system I used to play with Jordan, which worked better in the first two rounds of the regular season and the playoffs than in the Eastern Finals and the Finals. Its a lot smoother. Thats the way it is.

Thats why players like Jordan, Durant and Kobe are so good. They can go beyond any defence, but the deeper the playoffs, especially the deeper the playoffs are, and the level of physical confrontation in the game, then the referee cant blow fouls every time, which means superstars have to take over. No system is perfect for defense in the Finals. You have to rely on individual performance, on individual playersindividual performance. I did not regard Durants remarks as offence, but as fact. For us, with Durant, I take the 2016-17 season as an example, his first season in the Warriors is our real peak, we have outstanding offense every season, but that season, we were the best combination of on-court mobility and the fluency of following the game. Our system perfectly combines playersone-to-one singles, which is the peak of our offense. Durant averaged 25.8 points per game during the Warriors and 29.6 points per game in the playoffs. In Warriors he won two championships and two finals MVPs. Source: Netease Sports Author: Jottettes Responsible Editor: Gong Hao_NB12610
