The Slim Reaper stays dunking on tall dudes and Brook Lopez was the latest victim in this crazy highlight.
The Warriors are at their best on the fast break and an errant Jeremy Lin pass led to this play against the Brooklyn Nets. Steph Curry corralled the loose ball and found the barreling Durant running towards the rim. Lopez tried to half commit to his man but still slide over for the block, but was no match for the length of Durant. The Durantula went up with his right hand and was met with Lopez’s fouling right arm. Despite the contact, KD threw it down over Brook for the and-1.
The sneakers Kevin Durant laced up for this poster dunk was the Nike KD 9. This model featured Flyknit for the first time in Durant’s sneaker line, utilizing a sock-like fit for soft comfort. The other standout feature is the flexible, full-length Zoom Air that gave the wearer a bounce to their step.
Durant rocked a NIKEiD custom DubNation colorway for this game, which is no longer available.
