Durant is out after suffering a torn Achilles tendon during Game 5 of the series in Toronto and facing potentially a year-long absence. He is still a big part of the team despite not being able to play.
Cook and Durant go way back and have been friends for 15 years. They grew up in the Maryland suburbs of the Washington D.C. area and bonded through basketball after being introduced through the PG Jaguars traveling team. When he was in college, Cook went to Oklahoma City to train with Durant, who was with the Thunder at the time. For those reasons, Durant’s absence hits Cook harder than most.
