Brooklyn Nets guards Sean Kilpatrick and Caris LeVert were working out with Kevin Durant and Steve Nash early Tuesday.
This summer’s theme in the NBA has been viral Instagram posts of workouts joined by fellow players across the league.
The Brooklyn Nets have not disappointed.
This week, Sean Kilpatrick posted photos on Instagram working out with two former MVP recipients.
First, with Kevin Durant, of the Golden State Warriors.
Secondly, with former two-time MVP, Steve Nash.
Kilpatrick has been using the hashtag “undrafted” in most to all of his posts. He’s obviously working with a chip on his shoulder, a positive sign for Brooklyn fans.
His fellow teammate, Caris LeVert appears to have been in the mix as well, as seen here.
Kilpatrick’s friendship with Durant is nothing new, as Brian Lewis of the New York Post commented on it back in December.
“I love Sean. That’s my guy. I just want to see him do well. I’m not here to tell him what to do. I’m just here to be somebody he can lean on when he needs to talk or vent to.” – Durant
Kilpatrick and Durant were introduced by Adam Harrington, now a Brooklyn assistant, but once a part of the 2013-2014 Oklahoma City Thunder staff.
“Adam, he introduced me and Kevin together, … It’s something that’s really actually good, because when you have an All-Star like that who’s behind you and in your corner, it’s something that’s actually great.” – Kilpatrick”
Durant was likely responsible for Nash’s appearance, who has worked very closely with point guard Stephen Curry as a part of the Golden State staff.
Working out with two former MVP’s can’t be a bad thing, and Kilpatrick is certainly showing determination headed into next season.
Last season, Kilpatrick averaged 13.1 points and 4 rebounds per game.
Too soon to call him a dark horse for next year’s Most Valuable Player?
