Ranking Kevin Durant’s Possible Free-Agent Destinations by Superstar Pairings

We no longer care about remaining cap space or fit with the rest of the roster. It doesn't matter how many other stars would be stealing Kevin Durant's touches. The team's depth and ability to compete for a championship is wholly irrelevant. 

All that matters, to use a term coined by Bleacher Report's Dan Favale, is the ohmygod-ness of the superstar pairing formed by Durant and his new (or potentially old) primary running mate.

We're looking for the duos that will create the most highlights, dazzling fans with thunderous dunks, dizzying feats of athleticism and awe-inspiring displays of skill. We want groupings that truly love playing with one another, to the point that their passion can't help but inspire any and all onlookers. 

Not every potential pairing will be considered. Imagining Durant working alongside Anthony Davis is fun, but it ain't happening. Ditto for the prospects of him suiting up next to LeBron James, Paul George or DeMarcus Cousins. 

He's taking a meeting with six different teams, per TNT's David Aldridge, and those are the only six we'll pretend exist.
