Kevin Durant with the incredibly acrobatic reverse layup against the Nuggets (VIDEO)

Mar 2, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

This is the rare highlight where the replays from multiple angles really don’t do it justice.

Watching the original play at the beginning of this clip from Kevin Durant as it occurred in real time, it doesn’t even seem like making this shot was possible.

The force with which Durant flies by the basket wouldn’t appear to allow him to get off a shot with such a soft touch that fell gently through the basket as the player fell to the floor, but Durant is one of the game’s best pure scorers, and as a result, has an insane skill set that allows him to get buckets in the most unexpected ways.

      You could see that Durant was by far the better player coming out of college yet they blew it.
      Not only did they pass on Durant to draft Odom, they passed on Michael Jordan to draft Sam Bowie.
      How does one team get it THAT wrong twice?

    I agree that picking Oden over Durant was one of the biggest mistakes Portland did but after the draft they even made a poll asking rival GMs who would they pick if both players were %100 healthy and almost all of them said Oden. There wasn’t enough quality big men in the league and Oden had the talent + potential to dominate. Yes he couldn’t stay healthy and became a bust but it’s not like Portland knew he was going to be one.
