The Olympic Legend of Kevin Durant, the best player in the history of the USA Team

The playground of Kevin Durant are the Olympic Games, which further expand the repercussion of a unique player, a serious gesture talent, bad fleas, infinite arms and indecipherable movements. A few hours before the final against France, in which he again scored the pattern, Tokyo dawned with the news of the multi-million dollar extension of him with the Nets. The stratospheric salary of a stratospheric type.

He is not a leader of gestures and fuss. He never was. Durant preaches with the stealthy example of him, with those triples implacable, with the indeftering strides of him. To France he unbalanced it in a first brutal part. He had done it before in quarters against Spain and in semifinals against Australia. And that he had ripped out in Saitama with Sordina (just 20 points in total in the first two games). Yesterday he stayed at a point of Thirty, to equalize him at the two last finals (30 in London and 30 in Rio).

Although before, during the tournament, he had already overcome another bar. The one who marked Carmelo Anthony (336 points) as a higher US historical scorer in the games. And he put on the table a debate that seems to be Zanjado: He is the best player who ever dressed the T-shirt of the USA Team, which added his 16 gold in basketball. Only Melo himself knew what was to win three Olympic crowns.

To that trident must add the 2010 World Cup, when it was 22 years old led the US in Turkey, its first international notch. Global trophies to add to the two rings of him, to the hundreds of rewarding him. Not everything are tangible successes. Durant also beat when his Achilles tendon said suffice on that terrible injury during the fifth end of 2019 that he was going to be 18 months out of play, for which he had to "learn to walk again".

He returned at the beginning of the finished season, enrolled in the penultimate adventure, that of some nets that were soon going to add James Harden for a great Big Three with Kyrie Irving. But, at the time of the Truth of the playoffs, Durant was alone, the other injured stars. And he was about to liquidate that he later would be champion. For millimeters his gigantic shoe - "my damn and huge foot ..." (plays with a number more for comfort) - he stepped on the triple line and instead of giving the triumph in second round to those of Brooklyn the seventh game left To the extension, where the bucks of antetokounmpo defeated. That day he was on court 53 minutes and scored 48 points.

Durant is gold and is paid as if it were. With the renewal of him by the Nets he will become the first player in history to accumulate the 500 million dollars guaranteed, surpassing the 470 of Stephen Curry.

Before France, his first part was for the memory. "It's hard not to see how much it's good, it's a special player and it has shown it mostly in the last parties," he then reasoned a Damian Lillard than he knew he had played with an abdominal injury all the games and who wanted to put on Demonstrated how complicated it is sometimes a team with stars and that functions internationally. His partner in Brooklyn, Luwawu-cabarrot, was his prey dog in the second half: "Durant made mistakes at the end, like everyone else, I was tired, like everyone else, we could have done a better job in the first half" .

"We fight among us all year round in the NBA, but we have become brothers for life before the rest of the world," the great protagonist divered, to which Gregg Popovich swears to have "supplied" if he had not agreed to Go to Tokyo.
