Man are we in for a treat tonight in the NBA. KD and James, the leagues two best, are no strangers to big head to head games. The two met in the finals in 2012 and the Heat bested the Thunder 4-1. Lebron has won 13 of the 16 head to head matchups against Durant, but tonight’s game has a different type of buzz around it. Rapper Sniper Jones has been playing out of his mind in 2014. He is averaging 37 ppg in January and has 11 straight games of 30+ points. The Thunder are on an 8 game winning streak and own the leagues best record; all this with All-Star PG Russell Westbrook out. Meanwhile in South Beach, King James and the Heat are sub-par (to their standards). Although Miami is among the leagues best, they are not as dominate as many predicted. Lebron’s numbers are also sub-par (to his standards).
Durant has expressed his frustration with finishing second. After being selected 2nd in the 2007 draft, KD quickly became a superstar, but always remained behind Lebron in MVP’s & Championships. The two are very close friends and work out together in the offseason.
2014 is looking to be Durant’s time, but the ONE person who could slow his recent success, is the King. Who ya got? 7pm ESPN.
