SH Blog: Durant defiant about Tony Allen’s defense, Parsons says he’s better than Batum

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant has had one of the most prolific seasons we have ever seen, and he will run away with the  MVP award for his efforts in 2014. Part of what has made him so great is the efficient way in which he has totally dominated the competition. He averaged a whopping 32 points on 50.3 percent shooting from the field. His true shooting percentage (including field goal, 3-pointers and free throws) came out to 63.5 percent, which is truly ridiculous. When

GSW_Iguodala_Andre

The annual Rising Stars Challenge on Friday between chosen rookies and sophomores was pretty much what most expected it to be: An offensive showcase with not a whole lot of defense being played (although the Plumlee brothers may disagree).

However, it was the unlikely shootout that broke out between Dion Waiters and Tim Hardaway Jr. in the second half
