Kevin Durant already had the respect of everybody in the NBA and now he's added a little bit of street cred to his resume.
On Monday night, Kevin Durant put on quite a show for the fans in attendance at the streetball mecca in Harlem known as Rucker Park.
Durant, the two-time defending NBA scoring champion, dazzled the crowd with a barrage of cross-overs and long range shots during an Entertainer's Basketball Classic game.
According to ESPN, Durant fell two points shy of the EBC record for points in a game.
Despite the possibility that there will not be an NBA season this year, Durant has apparently been doing plenty to keep busy basketball-wise during the off-season. In June, he threw down a fantastic dunk during a summer league game and last month, he teamed up with James Harden for an incredible alley-oop in an exhibition.
