Kevin Durant and Chet Holmgren

Chet Holmgren finally made his debut in the NBA Summer League, delivered the goods, and proved he was as good as advertised. Kevin Durant watched him and had only great things to say.

“I see u cookin 7”

Holmgren dazzled in his debut with 23 points, four 3-points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 6 blocks, and a steal. Those stats could make any front office salivate at the kid’s potential. At only 20 years old and 7’1”, the sky’s the limit for Chet. Superstar Kevin Durant noticed and paid his compliments.

That’s a nice gesture from a superstar that most people think Holmgren closely resembles. There is a lot of pressure for the 7’1” forward/center who has a wingspan of 7’6,” but based on his first game in the Summer League, it seems Chet has adjusted to the attention and pressure.

Will Chet Holmgren become the next KD?

Due to the similarities in their body frames and skillset, a lot are saying Chet’s ceiling is Kevin Durant. They both have the handles and outside shooting of a guard. Now that Holmgren is with the OKC Thunder, he has a chance to accomplish what Kevin failed to do: win a championship for the city.

Holmgren has the potential and skills to be a big star in the league someday. He needs to stay healthy and ensure his body is ready for the NBA grind. The Thunder front office should keep the core intact with Josh Giddey and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Holmgren has the upside on defense compared to Durant, but the Slim Reaper brings a more polished and all-around offensive game.

The game between the Brooklyn Nets or whatever team Durant will be on next season against the OKC Thunder next season is going to be fun to watch. It’s like Kevin Durant is battling his younger self.
