Durant Shares Praise for Cauley-Stein
Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum has begun to dabble in the sports media business, hosting the "Pull Up" podcast, where he hits on a variety of topics and interviews fellow NBA players.
In July, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant joined the show to talk his NBA Mount Rushmore, toughest opponents to guard and more.
One of the topics they discussed, naturally, was Kings big man Willie Cauley-Stein.
“You know who I like a lot,” Durant explained. “Willie Cauley-Stein. I feel like he is the next one of those guys.”
Lost in the Kevin Durant vs CJ McCollum “feud” is the love for @THEwillieCS15 on the podcast.
After discussing Clint Capella, KD says, “You know who I like a lot? WilIie Cauley-Stein. I feel like he’s the next one of those guys.” Called him springy, fast and athletic.

McCollum instantly agreed, saying the fourth-year center "gets off the ground as quick as anyone I’ve ever seen."

Trill has been working on his game in Sacramento and Las Vegas, looking to keep the high praise coming his way.
The Kings make their return to the court on October 1 vs. the Phoenix Suns and match up with McCollum’s Blazers and Durant’s Warriors once each during the preseason.
