“He (Brandon Ingram) reminds me of myself, but he’s a little farther along than I was at that stage,” (Kevin) Durant said after Team USA practice. “I feel like if you continue to keep working, he’s with a great organization that’s going to push him and put him in a good position to be who he is. Continue to just work hard and believe in himself and everything is possible for him. He’s a great player. I watched him almost every game this season. I’m a huge fan, first person I can say that I can look at him and feel like I’m looking in the mirror. I’m rooting for him.”
