The story of (Kevin) Durant’s departure from Oklahoma City and arrival in Golden State, a move that rocked a league and spawned a superpower, features two iconic point guards. The Warriors believe that Durant, loyal to Russell Westbrook on a personal level, was weary of his ball-dominant approach. (Stephen) Curry presented a free-flowing alternative. But several Golden State coaches and executives also acknowledge the everlasting assist of yet another legendary floor general. “Without Steve Nash,” one says, “I’m not sure if we get Kevin Durant.”

Warriors’ advisor Jerry West made headlines with a phone call, but Durant shared more fundamental concerns about chemistry and fit in conversations with Nash.
