In his heyday, Kobe Bryant was arguably the league’s top scorer. There was hardly anyone who could have discussed it. However, towards the end of his career, Kevin Durant took over from Kobe.
The Slim Reaper has really succeeded Kobe as the league’s top scorer and there are only a few that come close. But a few years ago, when the two superstars faced off, Durant was a little embarrassed by Bryant on the court.
Kobe walked through KD and knocked his signature midrange sweater on him. Does this sound normal? No, if you look closely, Kobe’s move literally knocked Durant to the ground and cheated on him. It was such a gentle movement; commentators were impressed. You can watch the full video below.
While Kobe got the better of a young Durant here, we’ve never seen the two stars go head to head in the NBA playoffs. It is one of the best simulation games that fans can think of.
Well that game might not have happened, but Kevin Durant is still strong in the league. He now plays for the Brooklyn Nets and is the leader of one of the best teams in the league.
This season, Nets fans have high expectations of their superstar and hope he can lead them to the organization’s first-ever NBA Finals victory.
Speaking of the dream game for the upcoming season, it has to be between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets. While there are plenty of potential NBA Finals showdowns, the battle between the top two teams in the league would drive fans crazy.
After all, it would be a LeBron James v Kevin Durant clash. The two players have played against each other before, but fans can never get enough of their battles.
What are your predictions for this year’s NBA Finals? Do you think the Brooklyn Nets or the Los Angeles Lakers can go all the way? Or will it be another team? Let us know your perspective in the comments section below.
