Kevin Durant got a firsthand account of what Kyrie Irving was capable of during the 2017 NBA Finals as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games, and the 2013-14 MVP came away impressed.

During a Tuesday appearance on The Bill Simmons Podcast, Durant said he believes Irving has a better offensive skill set than Philadelphia 76ers legend Allen Iverson, via SLAM Online's Ryne Nelson:

I was telling some of my friends after Game 2, I was like, Kyrie, he just makes you happy when you watch him play. You just smile when you watch him play because for somebody to be that skilled, you know he had to work tirelessly at it. The stuff he has in his package is next-level stuff that you can try to teach your kids to do it, but youll never be able to do it.
