Kevin Durant Compares Joe Harris to Steph Curry and Klay Thompson

You're always told to love your teammates and have their backs but Kevin Durant may have just taken this a step further. KD sent some serious love to his Brooklyn Nets' teammate Joe Harris as he compared Harris' shooting abilities to the likes of the Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry.

Durant spoke to Michael Scotto of USA Today Sports and had this to say about Harris' ability to knock down shots:

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are the best shooters I've played with. Joe Harris is definitely right up there, getting there. The sky is the limit. He could be (as) good as he wants to be.

While he may not be on that level just yet, Harris is a deadly shooter, ranking second in the Association in 3-point percentage at 48.4% made. One thing that's quietly imprinted in the record books at the moment is Harris' name as the fifth best career 3-point % in league history. 

Harris' game will be on full display these playoffs as the Nets are going to have a massive spotlight on their postseason success. Maybe it is time to start giving Joe Harris some more love....
