Kevin Durant crosses Matt Barnes then throws it down (VIDEO)

There are times you just need to step back as a basketball fan and enjoy watching great players play.

And Kevin Durant is a great player, a pure scorer who is just dynamic to watch.

You can try to nit-pick his defense or make the silly “rings” argument (he’s 24, relax) bu just watch this video, or better yet go watch him play a game, and savor the opportunity. He is fluid, smart and just makes plays. He plays beautiful basketball.

Durant is better this year than he was last year. And while that should scare fans of other teams in the West, we need to step back and just enjoy the chance to watch him play some times. He is special.

    Durant will probably leave the game as the “greatest scorer of all time”. However, there is no way he gets to Kareem’s mark.

    I feel like a lot of people have never watched Kareem play. YouTube him, there are definitely some clips. The guy would back you down all game long and he would either hit the hook or back you so far down he could jump, do a 180, and just drop the ball in the basket. And he did that for 20 years.

    Who is Barnes complaining too? He blew the assignment, the was NOT Griffin’s mistake!
