The legend is growing.

I was sort of wondering what was going on when I was just seeing clips of that last triple in other videos. I was like, "why are the rushing the floor after a triple?" Oh, it was his fourth in a minute. Now it's so clear.

Except, was it 56 or 66? It looked like the announcer was saying "Fifty Three!"

"No lie, jus had one of the best times of my life at Rucker park," Durant said on Twitter.

lmao.

He fits the Rucker game perfectly.

1 guy dribbles down the court, doesn't pass, does a few cross-overs for show, jacks up a 30 footer.

Difference is, he makes them.

That would be super annoying to me if people mobbed the court after every nice play. WTF

Nice range by KD on the threes. He's starting is MVP campaign right now and hopefully for him, he doesn't get Derrick-Rosed in November again lol

Mad balla right there. Of course he's a NBA player and there not even close to that level, but there still athletes and dropping 28 in one quarter is dropping 28 in one quarter no matter how you settle it. He was feeling it during that last barrage of three pointers and you just know if anyone in the NBA could make it rain like that in Rucker Park like he was 2 feet from the basket, it would be Durant.

a lot of the criticisms of this being no defense streetball(like youtube comments) are weak tho. Durant would've made those shots in the NBA since nobody is blocking or really makes him shoot over them from 3 in the NBA either.

it was probably the angle of the camera but i swear those 3's looked longer than NBA 3's too.

He just showed the difference between the NBA and streetball. His J is so wet.

When he's that hot you cant stop him. Too fast to trap coming up the floor, too tall to bother his shot.

He was putting a similar show on the world championships playing against real professionals on games that actually mattered.Yet he seems to enjoy shooting over random streetballers more.Look how he celebrates..i don't get it tbh.

At its essence, basketball is a game we likely all begin playing for fun. On a 2038402840298 times smaller scale, I had fun when I did something awesome during a real actual game that mattered with thousands of fans observing. However, it can often be nearly as satisfying to show out in front of fellow community members in an impromptu street setting.

To be real, I wouldn't mind having 20,000 people cheering for me in the NBA conference finals. But I sure as heck wouldn't mind absolutely dominating in a highly respected, intimate street environment either. I say why not celebrate? It's great to be great. Have fun. Give everyone a show. Create a legend at the park. Give hundreds of people a story they'll be telling for years. I loved watching it.

Here's an extended clip covering much more of the game (including another absolute bomb with three defenders circling him a few steps inside half court):
