They had 8 years together and they made an NBA Finals, in which Russ joined Michael Jordan as the only players with 25+ points and 10+ assists in their NBA Finals debut. Russ was never perfect but he and Durant were a dynamic duo for a while and could've been for a long time, had injuries and attrition not led to their separation.

Harden and Durant came up together in OKC and made the 2012 NBA Finals in the Beard's third year in the league. Later Harden joined KD in Brooklyn to start a new super team, although that didn't quite work out, due to chemistry issues with Kyrie Irving.
You've got to be a mad lad to try and start a super team with a cat who thinks the earth is flat. Kyrie's choice to sit out games in 21/22 due to his unvaccinated status caused massive chemistry issues for the would-be title contenders, sort of proving Kyrie is a bad teammate to KD. However all signs point to these dudes loving each other.
The other half of the “Splash Brothers” Klay added two titles in GSW in Durant's three trips to the NBA Finals. The lights out shooter was as great of a teammate as it gets.
They might not have always gotten along, but Dray was the juice and emotional core of the Durant Warriors in their three trips to the NBA Finals, two of which they won. Without Draymond's role in the ultimate lineup of death, they might've never even got one.
