Kevin Durant Closing In On 20k Points

Kevin Durant has been sidelined from an calf injury, but he has a chance to make history with his return. Durant is 25 points shy of scoring 25,000 points before the age 30. If he does it on Wednesday, he would become the second youngest player to do it behind Lebron James.

The Warriors All-Star forward 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 went on to say he never envisioned making it to this milestone.

“I had one goal when I came into the league, and that was for me to win Rookie of the Year, and I just kept building after that,” he said. “My second year, I wanted to average 25. Every year I had a goal, but I never envisioned me with 20,000 points, 30,000 points. I was just taking it a day at a time, just trying to lock in, stay in the moment, and here I am.”

Simmons posted a photo on Instagram of the two with the caption “FRESH PRINCE X KING JAMES,” LeBron returned the favor in the comment section by relaying the same message complete with fire emojis and a couple of crowns:

Anthony Davis Shaves His Unibrow For Fans On April Fools Day

Published

on

Anthony Davis unibrow has been his trademark since he entered the league. The All-Star power-forward even trademarked phrases like “Fear the Brow” and “Raise the Brow.”

Davis took asked on fans on Twitter rather he should keep the brow or shave it. 51% of fans voted yes and Davis followed through with the vote.

In a clip, Davis applies shaving cream to the middle of his unibrow and holds the shaver right over it. But just then, the camera drops and when we see Davis again the hair between his eyebrows are gone. It’s a bit skeptical though since the camera drops and viewers don’t see Davis with any leftover shaving cream on his head.

Of course, it was just a prank.
