Kevin Durant made the move from Golden State to Brooklyn during the off-season. He signed with the Nets, joining Kyrie Irving to create a fearsome duo in New York.

Unfortunately for Nets fans, he won't be on the court this season as he recovers from a ruptured Achilles.

Instead, Durant has been doing media rounds as his teammates battle on the floor.

During a recent interview, Durant revealed his all-time starting five that he's played with during his NBA career - with himself on the roster, of course.

He'd put Kyrie Irving at point guard, James Harden at the two, himself at the three, Draymond Green at the four and - after some indecision - put Serge Ibaka at the five. Durant said about the team, "We can switch everything on D, we got all-world scorers...that's a perfect team."

Durant picked Irving over Warriors star point guard Steph Curry. It's an interesting choice, but one that keeps his relationship with a current teammate on solid ground.

If he picked Steph over Kyrie, Irving might not be too happy.

As for Durant's comment about the team having all-world scorers, that is true about Irving. He dropped 50 points in his Nets debut on Wednesday night.
