Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant recently gave his stamp of approval for LeBron James‘ move to the Lakers.

In an interview with The Undefeated, Durant says he “absolutely loved” James moving to Los Angeles and called his decision a “perfect move.”

“I loved it. I absolutely loved it,” Durant said. “I thought it was the perfect decision, perfect move, did everything he was supposed to do in Cleveland. I think this is the perfect next step for him, and he’s kinda breaking down the barriers of what an NBA superstar is supposed to be. You feel like you’re just supposed to play it out in one spot. I think he did a good job of giving different chapters. I think it’s gonna make his book even more interesting when it’s done.”

Durant feels like LeBron did all he could do in Cleveland.

Durant is one of the 35 players invited to USA Basketball’s minicamp in Las Vegas and says he’s ready to learn under new Team USA coach Gregg Popovich.
