POTD 5/31/12: Kevin Durant on Tim Duncan

I’ve come to the following conclusion: Kevin Durant is a criminally-underrated dunker.  The man’s name never really comes up in discussions of the league’s premier rim wreckers, yet he frequently posterizes seven footers with his elongated right arm.  While I wouldn’t nominate him for that gimmick of a contest they hold every All-Star Weekend (he’s too tall and lanky for that), I’d say he throws down sick in-game slams with more regularity than any other player not labeled a dunker.  I mean, check this one out—not only does he take off from outside the lane, but he double clutches it, too…

Forget basketball, sign this dude up for the long jump at the summer Olympics.  Seriously, that was an impressive leap.
