For Kevin Durant, the Brooklyn Nets’ victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday is quite noteworthy. Not only did they win their ninth game in a row, moving up to third place in the East, but KD also passed Tim Duncan for first place on the NBA’s all-time scoring chart.
With his performance for the Nets against the Cavaliers, Durant actually surpassed the Top 15 scorers on the list. He finished the night with 32 points in an extraordinarily effective scoring performance, needing just 14 points to unseat Timmy.
Durant talked about how important it is for him to attain this milestone after the game. Even while it may seem like a “little win” in comparison to winning the title, he still wants to recognize it.
According to SNY TV, Durant stated of his most recent accomplishment, “My career to be able to pass an all-time great, legend, somebody who altered the game, it’s something that I’ll call my folks tonight and chat over and just reflect on how we got here.”
A lot of NBA players don’t frequently highlight or make a big deal out of individual accomplishments like breaking or creating new regular-season records. But it’s true that it’s an occasion to rejoice when a legend like Duncan passes away. After all, we’re talking about the legendary San Antonio Spurs power forward, who is frequently regarded as the best power forward of all time.
Being listed alongside Tim Duncan is undoubtedly an amazing sensation, and as Kevin Durant moves up the scoring ladder, he will undoubtedly treasure the event.
