A starting five featuring Kevin Durant and LeBron James would be quite impressive. Adding just about any of the league's top stars alongside LeBron is compelling, although only certain stars may land in Los Angeles. There has been no shortage of Los Angeles Lakers rumors involving LeBron James and potential All-Star teammates for the future. Among them are Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, and even former Cavs teammate Kyrie Irving.

Just recently, Irving gave his thoughts on teaming with LeBron again in the near future. The same goes for one Kevin Durant, who was part of another Golden State Warriors' victory on Friday night (February 8).

Durant comments on LeBron, team up

On Friday night, Kevin Durant was part of a Golden State Warriors' 10-point victory over the Phoenix Suns. Durant finished with 21 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with eight rebounds and three assists.

All-Star teammates Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry combined for 45 in the 117-107 win. The latest victory made for Golden State's third in a row, and ninth of their last 10 games. It also improved their record to 39-15 and boosted them to a 2.5-game lead in the Western Conference.

Following the game, Durant made himself available to the media in a four-minute session. One of the questions that came up involved how he felt about LeBron James selecting him as the first overall pick for his NBA-All Star team.

According to ESPN, KD quickly replied to the inquiry with "What else is he supposed to do?"

Kevin Durant also said he enjoys the format of All-Star Game where the top vote-getting captains from the East and West are able to draft their teams. In addition, he joked that Giannis Antetounmkpo, captain of the opposing team, doesn't understand how to pick players right since "he's not from here."

KD also indicated that this team is clearly the favorites for the annual game.

Team LeBron's starting five features James, Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. Team Giannis boasts a starting five which also includes Steph Curry, Joel Embiid, Paul George, and Kemba Walker. That's two of the home area favorites in Curry and Walker.

LeBron, Durant team-up for future?

Basically, this Warriors squad continues to set the standard for All-Star excellence and achieving championships.

It's a goal that LeBron James has held throughout his career, but over the past four seasons, Golden State got in the way of winning three more titles. The addition of Durant helped Golden State in the past several runs, as they've won two straight championships.

Along with an appearance involving Durant's Thunder vs LeBron's Heat team, the two have met three times now in the NBA finals. A fourth matchup is only likely in the case that rumors involving Durant to the Knicks play out in the offseason.

As far as Kevin Durant joining the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, that could seriously rock the waters of the NBA, as two of the league's best players would join forces. However, Durant's teammate is a Lakers plan B, after Anthony Davis fell through, so KD might not be in the script. Coincidentally, he'll also be on Team LeBron, so there will be plenty of on-court glimpses of possible future teammates.
