While on the Bill Simmons’ Podcast, Kevin Durant talked about the one time he saw Milos Teodosic pull off the “greatest” pass ever.
A nice, fancy pass is one of the most beautiful things to see in a game of basketball. When you see someone like a Magic Johnson or Steve Nash dish a no-look pass to a teammate on the opposite side of the court, for example, you get as excited as if you have just seen a powerful, posterizing dunk. Today, there are many great passers in the world of professional basketball. One player that you may not know much about (but should) is Milos Teodosic.
Teodosic, who signed with the Los Angeles Clippers in July, is considered to be one of the best passers in the world and Kevin Durant co-signs this statement.
On the Bill Simmons’ Podcast, Durant said that he is really excited to see Teodosic play. He added that when they played against each other, Teodosic made one of the “greatest” passes Durant has ever seen in his life.
“I played against him. I can’t wait to see him. He made the greatest pass I’ve ever seen in my life last summer. We all was like, ‘Yo how the — how the hell do you see that?’ He was running toward the sideline and he flicked it around his head like through two people on the dime. He was at the 3-point line and flicked it to somebody over his head with his right hand, and hit him on a dime. And it kind of faked me out. I spun in a circle. I’m like, ‘That was the greatest pass I’ve ever seen in my life.’ From anybody. Best pass I’ve ever seen. So I’m excited to see how he plays.”
Teodosic spent that last 10 seasons playing in the Euroleague. Aside from being a fancy, unorthodox passer, he is also a good shooter. Last season, he averaged 16.1 points on 44.4 percent shooting and 6.8 assists. Additionally, he averaged 38.1 percent on shots beyond the arc and 55.0 percent on shots inside the arc.
Though Teodosic will most likely not get the starting gig with the Clippers, he will probably get many minutes off the bench, where he, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan will surely link up for many amazing plays.
