Kevin Durant has set Twitter on fire after lighting up Harlem’s famed street basketball Mecca, Rucker Park.
Durant scored 66 points in an Entertainers Basketball Classic game, a point total bested by only two other players in the court’s long history. While a dazzling dunk got people on their feet, it was Durant’s fourth three-pointer in a row that sent spectators spilling on to the court.
The Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard is trying to keep in shape off the hardwood because of the NBA lockout. Durant is said to be considering playing overseas if the lockout cuts into the upcoming NBA season. And he has towed a hard line, stating, “No matter how long the lockout’s going to take, we’re going to stand up. We’re not going to give in.”
