I will never turn down an opportunity to post video of Kevin Durant being, well, Kevin Durant. The Hoop Doctors put together their list of KD’s top 10 plays of 2012. Their selections were pretty great. They didn’t just go with generic dunks or buzzer beaters. They had a few gorgeous scoop layups (the one against the Wolves is art) and of course his posters on JaVale McGee and Roy Hibbert.
Re-watching his game-winner over Shawn Marion though, it’s incredible as to how KD got that off. That really was outstanding defense by Marion. KD did shoot the ball as much as he just flicked his wrist. Falling backwards, fading left, hand in his face and somehow he gets it off. I honestly don’t think there’s another player in the world that would’ve been able to get that shot off, much less make it.
