This might sound crazy when you read it, but I’m just going to put it out there — I think Kevin Durant is better at basketball than Josh Smith. I’m not sure if it was the three straight blocks or the dunk while getting fouled that convinced me, but I really do think it’s true.
It’s also nice that we got a Jeremy Evans-Ronny Turiaf moment between two very good NBA players during a regular season game. It would have been pretty embarrassing to have our sport’s play of the year come during the preseasons. Crisis averted.
