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.

Published

Lebron James simply wasn’t ready to home.  Facing elimination, James poured on 46 points to force Game 7.

The Cavs won on Friday night, 109-99 despite losing Kevin Love to head injury. James was determined not to let the series end.

James was close to a triple-double but had to settle for a double-double.  James ended the night with 46 points in 46 minutes. He also added 11 rebs and 9 assist.

“Greatness,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “Championship pedigree. Giving it his all. We needed that, especially when Kevin went down. We had to play `Bron as many minutes as he had to. He delivered. He was up for the challenge. He carried us home as usual.”

“It’s a Game 7,” James said. “It’s something that you wish you had when you’re done playing, but more than that, it’s just basketball for me. I know what I’m capable of doing, and I’m going to trust everything I put into it.”

Boston stayed in the game thanks to Terry Rozier’s 28 points and Jaylen Brown adding 27 points.

Boston guard Marcus Smart gave his thoughts on Game 7.

“It’s not going to be pretty,” Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. “We’ve got to come out ready to get our nose bloody and our mouth bloody. We’ve got to come out ready to fight. You’ve got to find a way, whatever it takes.”

Jalen Rose Walks Off Set Over Jordan Vs Lebron

Published

The debate over Jordan versus Lebron will be one talked about forever. No matter where you go. For some, there is no debate, Jordan all day. For others, Lebron hands down.

Jay Williams joined Get Up! to make the point that in 1 on 1, he would give Lebron the advantage.

“You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike. In a one-on-one game, LeBron James, 6-9, 260 pounds — if the game was to seven, I think LeBron would win 7-3. You can talk about his mentality, but we’re not talking about five-on-five basketball, J-Rose. We’re not talking about the passive LeBron, making the right play … LeBron James is 6-9, 260, he moves like a guard! He moves like a guard. He defends like a guard.”

Jalen responded with the classic Jordan comeback.

“Michael Jordan was all-defensive first team nine times. LeBron James was five times. Michael Jordan led the league in scoring ten times. Ten! LeBron James led the league in scoring once. I’m talking about a guy whose been the best offensive player AND the best defensive player.”
