The day after Kevin Durant put 37 points on the Houston Rockets in the Warriors’ Game 1 win in the Western Conference Finals, Greg Papa took the opportunity to explain just how impressed he was by that performance.

Here’s how the opening segment of “The Greg Papa Show” with Bonta Hill went:

“The reality is, Kevin Durant, and I’m waiting for all of you to acknowledge it and the guy in Northeast Ohio, when he loses, he’ll still say, ‘Well, I’m the best player on the planet.’ No, the best player on the planet is Kevin Durant,” Papa said on 95.7 The Game. “And it’s not even a question.”

“He is a go-to offensive force. They have no answer for him. Nobody does.”
