When the Thunder came out of the All-Star break in a three-game slump, it took some words from OKC assistant Brian Keefe to Kevin Durant to get the superstar back on track.
"That was probably one of the most realest conversations I've had with a coach, ever," Durant said to NBA.com's David Aldridge. Durant goes on to talk about how Keefe essentially put him in his place about body language and attitude.
Aldridge's piece centers on how the good teams have players that are open to criticism and coaching, such as the Spurs' Gregg Popovich getting at his veteran players, even future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan.
