Even though Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant have yet to play an NBA game together as teammates, Irving already has high praise for the two-time NBA Finals MVP.

Appearing on Durant’s The ETCs podcast, Irving said Durant is the first teammate he’s had that he trusts to be able to make a clutch shot while trailing late in the fourth quarter.

Irving did note that he wasn’t trying to slight any of his previous teammates, but he “felt guilty” when he wasn’t taking the last shot in games because “I felt like I was the best option.”

Even still, his comments were enough for LeBron fans to go on a rampage as they took to Twitter to fire back at him.
