Kevin Durant Became The Second Youngest Player To Reach 20k Points

Published

on

Kevin Durant made history on Wednesday night, scoring his 20,000th bucket with a standing ovation.

In the first half against Clippers KD secured his legacy from assisted mid-range shot. With those two points, Durant became the second youngest player to reach 20,0000 before 30. Durant is now behind Lebron James on the list but is ahead of Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, and Michael Jordan as the only players do it.

KD  spoke to ESPN about the opportunity to join  Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan as the only players do it.

“Man, that’s some great company, and there’s so many names I never thought I’d be in the same conversation with,” Durant said. “But to know — to have it in numbers, in black and white — to know that you belong in that group is pretty special to me. I’m telling you, man, it’s never been a goal of mine to count how many points I have. That’s not why I play the game. To be under 30 and do it, that’s special to me too. You play in this league for so long, and having an opportunity to do something like this at this age, you just can’t take it for granted, because there’s not too many players on that list.”

Durant finished the night with 40 points. Durant shot 14 for 18, including 6 of 7 from deep in the 125-104 loss to the Clippers. The game was Durant’s first game back after being out three game due to a calf injury.

DeMarcus Cousins Shows Off His Steph Curry Impression

Published

on

DeMarcus Cousins will be out for the first half of the season recovering from his Achilles injury. Cousins signed a one-year with the Warriors and is already practicing shooting like Steph Curry.

A video was posted of Boogie draining 3 points in shoots in practice.

When the Associated Press (h/t USA Today) asked him about the signing, Curry said Cousins should make the Dubs more versatile:

“It’s interesting because nobody going into free agency thought about DeMarcus as an option, then all of a sudden he found his way onto our team. So for us to have a new dynamic, a new look, whenever he’s fully healthy it should be amazing. I think we got better. Obviously we lost some pieces that were very vital to us winning a championship but you’ve got to evolve, you’ve got to find different things to focus on as you’re trying to repeat, so it should be exciting.”

Cousins ended the year with a 37% three-point percentage. That number can go up with the spacing on the floor the Warriors can create.

The Miami Hurricanes Will Debut New Environmental Uniforms For LSU Season Opener

Published

on

Last year the Miami Hurricanes brought the swag back to college football with the Turnover Chain. Now it seems that school is ready to make an impact outside of the football with their new uniforms.

The U will debut the first-ever uniforms made with repurposed and upcycled materials. Creating a unique look for the Canes, the Miami x Parley A1 uniform features “The U’s” home jersey orange colorway that is accompanied by accents that are an ode to the cause to end plastic pollution of the oceans. The jersey sleeve caps and the stripes white pants feature a wave print that fuses Miami’s signature dark green with the EQT green colorway that adidas x Parley has become synonymous with.

“Our players and staff are excited to wear the new Adidas Parley jerseys and gear for our season opener. We’re also excited that Adidas and Parley are teaming up with UM to help promote sustainability around the world,” head football coach Mark Richt said. “Community service has always been an integral part of our football program, and this partnership with Adidas and Parley helps us continue those efforts.”

Starting August 27, the Miami x Parley A1 uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science to launch a fund for educational research.

The Hurricanes will wear the uniforms for their season opener against Louisiana State University at the 2018 AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sept. 2.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson want to stay in Warriors uniforms their entire careers. Both players want to stay with the team that drafted them.

Curry was on the Bill Simmons podcast recently and asked if he hopes to retire with the team, Curry said: “For sure I do. This is home. This is where I want to be, for obvious reasons.”

Curry was on the Bill Simmons podcast recently and spoke about his intentions to stay with his championship team.

“I love the Bay Area, man,” he said. “The only reason I go home now is if my sister’s getting married or to go play the Hornets for that one game, so I haven’t really been back much. I haven’t put my mind there.”

Curry, a five-time All-Star, averaged 26.4 points and 6.1 assists in 51 games for the Warriors in 2017-18. He signed a five-year, $201 million contract extension with Golden State in July 2017.

Klay is going into his contract year and spoke about doing whatever he could to keep the band together.

“Absolutely,” he said. “Playing for one team your whole career is definitely special. Only so many guys have done it in professional sports, so it’ll be a goal of mine. Hopefully it all works out.” Thompson continued, “It’s so far away,” Thompson said of his pending free agency. “Anything I can do to stay with the Warriors is first and foremost. God willing, it happens. If not, I don’t even think about that.”
