Who is Kevin Durant’s Favorite NBA Player?

Click and Follow the NBA Swish on FACEBOOK and on TWITTER

Kevin Durant, only 22 yrs old and has already gained Superstar status in the NBA. Last season, he led the NBA in scoring and is on pace to complete that feat once again this season.

(Its crazy to think that this guy is only 1 month older than me… fml)

Kevin Durant Statistics:
27.8 ppg, 6.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists

Despite being an idol and role model to many basketball fans, Durant was once a fan himself, a fan of:

Vince Carter

Yup you better believe it… Vince Carter, although he has deteriorated with age, now 34, was a highlight machine up until his final year as a New Jersey Net, hence the names Vinsanity and Half Man, Half Amazing. He is currently the 8th top scorer in the NBA amongst active players and 36th all-time.

Durant said:

“When I was growing up and 8 or 9 or 10 and I really started getting into basketball . . . I thought he was the best player ever. . . I still look up to him. Even though people say he’s not the old Vince Carter, I’ve watched him in the league since I’ve been here, and he’s proved people wrong. So, I’m still a big fan. He’s still my favorite player.”

So.. do you think Carter knows he’s Durant’s Idol??

YOU be the judge..

This season, Carter is averaging a woeful 14.1 ppg, while shooting 43.7%..

However, against the Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder, in 3 games, Carter is averaging 30 ppg, shooting it at 53.2%

So yeah, I think he knows.. and baby it shows, Check it out..
Air Cactus??… Really?

A Nuggets’ Drama Ending

Will 'Melo' wear a Knick or Net Jersey after Trade Deadline?

With the Trade Deadline approaching on February 24th, the Denver Nuggets and Carmelo Anthony are expected to hug and wave goodbye… After 7 and a half strong seasons in Denver, the now 4-time All-Star is ready for change and reconsideration does not seem likely.

‘Melo’ wants out of Denver and has indirectly hinted to his home state of New York. He has forced the organizations hand by refusing to sign a $65M extension making him unrestricted this upcoming summer. Although, New Jersey is a close 2nd option, everyone knows that New Yorkers hate New Jersey.

(Ted Mosby Explains)

New York Denver Proposal

New York Knicks Receive: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Willams and Renaldo Balkman

Denver Nuggets Recieve: Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, 1st-round (2014) Pick and Corey Brewer (from MIN)

Minnesota Timberwolves Recieve: Eddy Curry, Anthony Randolph

New Jersey Denver Proposal

New Jersey Nets Receive: Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Renaldo Balkman and Melvin Ely.

Denver Nuggets Receive: Derrick Favors, Devin Harris, Troy Murphy, Ben Uzoh and four 1st round picks


  • Anthony is expected to inform the Nets today whether he will or will not sign the extension with the team, which will likely determine whether the trade is completed or not.
  • If he does not agree, the Nuggets have 2 options left, let Anthony walk next summer to New York or trade him for value to New York.
  • A deal has been agreed to, but was not allowed to be announced during All-Star Weekend??

What do I think??

Carmelo Anthony will get his way and New York will make a run for an NBA Championship behind Melo, Amare and Billups.

What do YOU think??
