Not surprisingly, KD swishes it. As told to Art Garcia of NBA.com:
“I have a lot of respect for Michael Jordan and LeBron is one of my best friends, so whatever he wants to do as far as his own number I’m behind. But I also know who came before me,” Durant said. “Nothing against MJ, but if you retire his number around the league, what about Bill Russell and Oscar Robertson and Elgin Baylor? And all of the other great players who went before?
“If you’re going to do that for Michael, you should do the same for the rest of those guys. Whatever happens, happens. I just don’t think guys like Russell and Robertson and Chamberlain should be forgotten.”
