    Kevin Durant Grew Up Modeling Game After Larry Bird

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...ility/1748853/

    "Larry Bird is a guy I like watching," Durant said with a smile. "I watch film on him all the time. I like his approach to the game when he was playing. When I first started playing the game, my Godfather Taras Brown who taught me how to play he always was a Larry Bird guy, always used to look up his stats. Brown, nicknamed "Stink" was a trainer at a local gym, Seat Pleasant Recreation Center, just outside of Washington, D.C. where Durant grew up and was his coach there.
    "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."
    - Michael Jordan

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Durant mirrors Bird, Kobe mirrors MJ, LeBron mirrors Magic.

    All I saw was Kevin Durant grew up modeling.

    I thought this thread had potential.

    I was mistaken.

    I don't believe him tbh... I think he likes Bird NOW, but he was in his teens during the 2000s, so I'd like to think he grew up watching/modeling Kobe, but can't say it because he is playing against him

    Dwight mirrors Hakeem.
    Javale McGee mirrors Wilt.
    DeAndre Jordan mirrors Bill Russell.
    Glen Davis mirrors post Miami Heat Shaq.



    Kevin Durant certainly has Larry Bird - like stats. Incredibly efficient scoring, high rebound, and he can work on his passing to rack up his assists like Bird did. Bird is a career 6.3 assists and 10 rebound guy... wow.

    What about the young guys? I think Anthony Davis Mirrors Duncan.

    I don't know, I think I'd like to see him actually play in a real regular season NBA game to judge that.

    Make sense.

    Oh and LeBron mirrors Jordan, Magic, and Wilt all of them. He is the mixture of those three.

    Melo mirrors little winy self centered Knicks fans. That's why he's a perfect fit, it's funny how you guys rip him last season and now that you guys are doing good in the first quarter of the season that you guys slob him up.

    This is immature just like your sig. Amare mirrors? There is that better? Josh smith mirrors? Calling Knicks fans whiny and self centered sounds like you have a personal problem man.
