The impact of KD

While Durant may take some time to return to his old MVP self, the Brooklyn Nets are still getting a significant boost when he makes his debut in the black and white. The team should immediately shoot up the Eastern Conference standings.

His presence on the floor will allow Brooklyn players such as Irving Caris Levert, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Joe Harris to do what they do best, with less pressure on them from opposing defenses. All season long, they will be in a battle with teams like Boston and Toronto for the Atlantic Division title and the second seed in the east.

As for the 2021 playoffs, Brooklyn fans should expect at least a Conference Finals appearance, most likely against the dominant Milwaukee Bucks. It would be difficult to stop the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetoukounmpo, as most teams have found out the hard way. But anything is possible in the postseason, especially in a seven-game series.

More from Brooklyn Nets

The 2021 NBA Finals trophy probably won’t be heading to New York in Durant’s first season back in action. But KD should have no problem leading the Brooklyn Nets on a deep playoff run.

For the regular season, his numbers should look something like this: 25.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the field, 40.4 percent from three, and 90.1 percent from the free-throw line.
