Kevin Durant didn't have the ideal return on Thursday night. That didn't stop Chris Paul from having a little fun.

Kevin Durant made his long-awaited return to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. After a freak accident caused Durant to miss time, the Suns are finally at full strength. It wasn't the return that Durant or Suns fans had hoped for. However, don't expect too many poor performances from the future Hall-of-Famer. Durant's teammates don't seem too worried about the performance. Chris Paul, Durant's new point guard, had a little fun with his new teammate.

Paul spoke with the media on Durant's offensive struggles on Wednesday night. During his comments, Paul took a fun shot at Durant. CP3 jokingly stated, "Most times, he's just going to miss. Not too many people that's ever going to make him miss. I'm probably one of the only people that used to do that." After the comments, Paul grabs Durant's attention to let him know what he said. All Durant could do was laugh off the situation.

Kevin Durant Has Fun With Poor Shooting Night

Team chemistry off the court isn't an issue with the Suns. Paul and Durant have been around long enough to know these nights happen. Obviously, both players have more good nights than bad. Once Durant finds his rhythm again, the Suns will be a tough playoff elimination. Phoenix is getting healthy at the right time. With the playoffs just around the corner, health is the most vital positive for the team. Paul definitely has welcomed Durant to Phoenix with open arms.

It's okay to laugh at yourself after a tough moment. Last game only proves that Durant is human. Not the Durantula character that many see him as on a nightly basis. The NBA season is a long one. Being serious night in and night out isn't an attainable goal. The Suns have just five games remaining in the regular season before the NBA Finals quest begins. Do you think the Suns are a credible threat to winning the title? If not the Suns, who will be NBA Champion? Give us your predictions of the NBA Finals in the comment section below.
