Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving didn’t just stumble into teaming up together in Brooklyn.  The two are close friends, in fact, according to Jay Williams, the two are more than friends.

Via NY Post:

“I think they’re more than friends,’’ Williams said of Durant and Irving. “They’re like brothers. It’s not just like, ‘Hey we’re a friend.’ That relationship to him is very special. In the culture of basketball, people are trying to tear you apart and go different ways. They took the journey they had and they really understand each other. It came down to his relationship with Kyrie. It was a difference-maker, man.”

We’ll see if that friendship survives playing with each other in Brooklyn.  They have a pretty strong team, but that doesn’t always translate into wins.
