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.
