Not even the NBA lockout can stop Kevin Durant from lighting up the scoreboard and captivating the basketball universe with his otherworldly scoring ability.
In his first trip to Harlem’s famed Rucker Park — arguably, if not easily, the most respected and renowned outdoor court on the planet — the Thunder All-Star made noise.
Durant scored 66 points — raining threes from way downtown and tomahawk-chopping dunks on fast breaks — in an Entertainers Basketball Classic contest in which his DC Power knocked out the Sean Bell All-Stars.
“No lie, jus had one of the best times of my life at Rucker park..wow! I love NY...Harlem waddup,” Durant tweeted, following one of the greatest and most entertaining scoring exhibitions in Rucker Park history.
