Kevin Durant’s Late Night Twitter Q&A

@KDTrey5 took to Twitter last night to answer some questions from his followers. Interesting time to decide to do this KD.
Maybe he was little jealous of all of the attention that is being put on NBA Free Agency, which he is not a part of this year.
Here are some of the questions and answers.

Pretty cool video for the NBA on Christmas day.

The purpose of the video is the show off the Christmas Day jerseys that teams will be wearing.

Wade and Durant Gatorade commercial (video)

wade_durant
At first look at this commercial, I thought it painted Kevin Durant in a bad light.It went back to a bad time in his career, having lost the NBA Championship to Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat. Never would I think that an athlete would allow a moment like that to be used for a commercial.
But I continued to watch and saw what I think was pretty creative. If you haven’t seen it yet, I won’t ruin it for you.
Take a look

NBA Finals Game 3 recap

The Finals have returned to Miami for the next 5 days and the city is buzzing with a lot of NBA excitement. Fans, NBA analyst and the basketball world are all in South Florida, and they were all treated to another great game on Sunday night.

Game 3 turned out to be another nail biter in the American Airlines Arena. The Miami Heat led most of the night, withstood another furious rally from the OKC Thunder, and were able to prevail at the final horn 91-85. Even while shooting 33 percent in the 2nd half, committing 9 turnovers in the 4th quarter alone and shooting 18 percent outside of 10 feet while the combination of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant shot 51 percent.

Lebron James finished another great night with 29 points and 14 rebounds, while Dwyane Wade finished with 25 its, 7 rebounds and 7 assist.

Chris Bosh who was 3 of 11 from the field, had  a great game rebounding and defensively, was asked if the disappointment from last year motivates this team to not let it happen again. He said that “everyday we remind ourselves, we think of that pain that we experienced last year. We carry that pain with us. We think about it everyday, and that helps us to succeed in this series.”

The resolve and the will in this team to withstand everything that is happening to them in game is somewhat amazing considering that all year long analyst and critics said that all these things would be to the Heat’s detriment had they made it this far. Now up 2-1 in this series all eyes will be on Tuesday night to see if the Thunder can withstand the mental and physical wave that they Heat is unleashing on them or will they continue to wilt under the pressure.

Stay tuned.

NBA Finals Game 1 recap; Thunder are good, but calm down

Sometimes I just wish people in sports would remember things that happen two weeks ago in the sport they are watching before they write the obituary on a team, person or coach.

The Boston Celtics, after a grueling 7 game series with the young and spry Philadelphia 76ers, flew down to Miami to begin their series with the Heat. A lot of folks, who were already counting the Celtics out, said that the Heat would win Game 1 and maybe 2. They did, and when the Celtics lost, a lot was talked about their previous series, the age of the players (which has been discussed for 3 years now) etc., etc. 

Sure it may have been a foregone conclusion that the Heat should have easily  gotten by the aging C’s, but as the great Lee Corso says every Saturday on College Game Day on ESPN…”not so fast my friend”. 

The Celtics gave the Heat everything they could have handled…all the way to the 4th quarter of the 7th game of the series. Eventually fatigue and a great defense set in. Oh, and age.

But go back to game 1 of that series. Everyone felt the rested Heat should have beaten the Celtics and they did. However in game 2, when everyone had the same amount of rest..what happened? Overtime, the Heat outlast the Celtics 115-111. Rajon Rondo poured in 44, remember? He had a heck of a game.

Now, should that have been a bad sign for the Heat if they took overtime to beat an aging Celtic team? Maybe, but that’s why they play a best of 7 and not a best of 1 or 3.

Here’s where folks forget recent history so quickly. The Heat get out to a quick start versus the Thunder in game 1, and some people are starting to fall in love with it, and beginning to think the Thunder are overwhelmed. Never mind that Westbrook and Durant admitted to being nervous at the tip. The Miami Heat players are human too. Could adrenaline and excitement have been the cause of them running the offense and defense almost to a “T” in the 1st half, then fatigue being the problem in the 2nd half.

Can’t forget about the extra sme-dium tight rotation as well. James Jones had a migraine and could not help out at all. You really gonna trust Norris Cole out there for a few minutes, versus Westbrook or James Harden, in the NBA Finals? I love Norris Cole, but um..let’s slow down with that.

The rotation, the defensive lapse can all be adjusted. It’s Dwyane Wade and his first half lack of production is the thing that we look to see if it can be adjusted. He is the key to this series. Lebron shows up and gives you what he gives you (30-12-8). Wade sounded pretty defiant in the post game presser saying things like “I’m a winner” and “This was a feel out game”. Ok. We know you’re a winner and I’ll buy the feel out game thing. But it’s not like your first halves have been great D. I’m just saying.

So in closing, as coach Eric Spoelstra said after game 6 in the conference finals, “nobody likes having dirt thrown on their face when they are alive”. The Heat aren’t dead. Yet. Let’s see what happens in Game 2.

Lebron James vs. Kevin Durant

I think this matchup will be “overmatched” in game one. As the series goes on, other match ups like Wade vs. Westbrook and Sefalosha, Bosh vs. Harden and other bigs, will be highlighted and talked about.

But make no mistake, Lebron vs. Durant is the main event in these 2012 finals.

Here’s a video with some highlights of the two.

Kevin Durant’s emotional moment with Mom

It’s a tradition after every Thunder home game. Kevin Durant walks over to his mom, gets a hug and a few words of encouragement, a kiss and then he’s off to the locker room.

But I have a feeling after beating the Spurs at home on Wednesday night, this was probably the best hug-words of encouragement-kiss they’ve had yet to date.
