During his NBA career, Kevin Durant has had the opportunity to play with some of the best point guards in the sport, including both Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook.

Fans can debate which one of those players they think is better--it's Curry, by our estimation--but now Durant himself has officially weighed in. He did so during an interview with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Serge Ibaka for Bleacher Report.

Ibaka put him on the spot, asking him flat out who is the better player, Curry or Westbrook. Durant chose his former Golden State Warrior floor general

"Stephen Curry because he can shoot better," Durant said after a little bit of prodding.

You can see the Curry/Westbrook question at the 18:10 mark in the video below. The entire segment itself is interesting, as the two old friends eat snake and Ibaka asks Durant about his DM habits with celebrity women.

Durant and Westbrook have a complicated relationship to say the least. He and Curry seemed to have parted on better terms, though their relationship wasn't exactly airtight and there were reports that Durant resented that Curry, not him, was the face of the Golden State franchise.

Durant signed a multi-year free agent contract with the Brooklyn Nets this offseason. He is expected to miss the 2019-20 season as he rehabs from a torn Achilles tendon.
