Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain and the wavin’ wheat can sure smell sweet when the wind comes right behind the rain. -Oklahoma!
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! What’s crack-a-lacking sports fans? I’ll tell you what’s crack-a-lacking. Kevin Durant is crack-a-lacking. The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant is crack-a-lacking. Every day this kid just gets better. Anything you can be, I can be greater. Sooner or later, I’m greater than you. I’m picking sooner. Don’t look now folks, Kevin Durant has arrived. Here I am baby. Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours!
Signed, sealed, delivered with thirty-one big points last night. Yes Virginia, the Lakers still won, but still. But still, Kevin Durant has scored at least thirty points in each of his last five games. My goodness! Encroaching on my greatness.
Know this; know that only two other players in franchise history scored 30-or-more points in five consecutive games. Only Spencer Haywood, twice. Get the papers, get the papers. And only Dale Ellis. My favorite Dale Ellis moment? C’mon, you know what it is. It’s this:
I’m sorry. I digress. Where was I? Ah, yes. Ah yes indeed its fun time, fun time. It’s Kevin Durant time. Kevin Durant just won Player of the Week. Kevin Durant just led the Thunder to its best week of the season. He averaged 33.7 points and he shot 55 percent from the field. And this kid didn’t make the All Star Team? A travesty. It’s a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.
Let the word go forth from this time and place, to Thunder fans and NBA fans alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of basketball player. The torch has been passed to Kevin Durant. Enjoy it. You are enjoying history.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
