Kevin Durant is one of this generation's most decorated NBA players. But, there's an offer on the table in case the Golden State Warriors superstar is interested in taking on a new challenge.

The 2014 MVP praised Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, calling him "one of the most impressive athletes in all of sports," after the Rams shut out the Arizona Cardinals 34-0 on Sunday.

Durant subtly poked fun at himself, claiming he would "join the Rams right now." The comment is seemingly a play on the narrative that Durant - who signed with the 73-win Warriors team in 2016 - only joins the best teams.

Rams head coach Sean McVay seemed to like the idea of adding the near 7-foot forward as an easy touchdown target.

"I bet he’d be pretty dangerous in the red zone on some of those jump balls," McVay joked, according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry. "So if he thinks about wanting to do that, we’ll welcome him. He can come kick it with us anytime he wants."

Fresh off his second consecutive NBA championship and Finals MVP, Durant inked a new two-year deal, worth $61.5 million this summer.

Donald, meanwhile, was appropriately gifted a reported six-year, $135-million contract extension prior to the start of the NFL season.

The Rams have won their first two games of the season and have a league-leading plus-54 point differential.
