But on Sunday, at Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am game in Seattle, KD gave the Emerald City a little up-close taste of what they’ve been missing. And the Thunder superstar, who couldn’t make up for five years of lost time, certainly tried his best.
Durant, who played all but 15 seconds of the 51-minute game, scored 63 points on a slightly ridiculous 62 shots, hoisting up long-range bombs (8-of-32 from three) like Carmelo Anthony if you told him his paycheck rested solely on his scoring average.
And why not? The packed gym of more than 3,000 came to see Durant showcase his all-world scoring skill, not his improved ability to make the correct pass and play proper post defense.
