The weekend tore through da club like K. Smooth tore through the Mavs' defense on Friday night. It left us all hungover, burping up Italian meats and asking why we put up with our 40 hour a week cube jobs.
That all being said, this isn't about us, our shitty jobs or our bad attitudes. This is about someone who found the key to averting the life of a desk jockey: grow to be almost 7 feet tall and have a freakish 7'5" wing span. I give you the NBA's best player, Kevin Durant. Last night, he became the first player in NBA history to make 20+ free throws in back to back games. He is now 41/42 from the line over his last 2 and an insane 91% from the charity stripe this season. In those last two, he has combined to score 89 points. For those of you that are math challenged, that's almost 45ppg. 45!
I'd say with recent injuries, the MVP race has now fallen squarely on Durant vs. LeBron. If I were a betting man, my money would be on the protagonist to unseat the villain for MVP and for NBA supremacy.
