What’s the buzz on Twitter?

📅 On this day in 2012, Kevin Durant became the second-youngest player in NBA history to average at least 30 PPG in a Finals.
The only player to do so at a younger age is Rick Barry in 1967. In fact, Barry is one of only three players to average at least 40 PPG in a Finals. PM

What’s the ceiling on this lineup:
– Westbrook
– Harris
– Durant
– Simmons
– M. Turner

– Mills
– Curry
– Tucker/Ingles
– Ja. Green
– Biyombo
– K. Edwards
– C. Thomas
– D. Sharpe – 12:09 PM

Just saw the video where Barkley said of KD that “he’s gonna have to win a championship as the guy, as the bus driver” to get respect, and he won’t get that respect until he achieves that very specific criteria.
Hmmmm … by that logic, isn’t Chuck saying we shouldn’t respect him? – 6:05 PM

Johnny Davis: “I’ve been watching (OKC) ever since they had Kevin Durant, James Harden and Russell Westbrook on the same team.” – 12:42 PM

Johnny Davis on OKC: “I think it’s a really great organization. I’ve been watching them since they had Kevin Durant, James Harden and Russell Westbrook. I think it’d be a great fit if they drafted me.” – 12:42 PM

So what happens if Kyrie and the Nets don’t work things out?
And, maybe more important, how would Kevin Durant feel after Kyrie gave him the big recruiting pitch for Brooklyn (“Two max slots!”) at the 2019 All-Star game in Charlotte? AM

You don’t just get players like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving every couple of years. Especially the Nets. – 11:18 AM

Shouldn’t this kill the narrative that KD is calling the shots in Brooklyn?
Because if that were the case then nobody would be talking about Kyrie Irving right now. – 11:01 AM

hard not to feel bad for KD, but he’s in a mess of his own making.
Durant chose to leave the comfy confines of Golden State and the chance to spend the rest of his career alongside another all-time great in Steph Curry.
Instead, KD decided to hitch his future to Kyrie Irving. – 10:19 AM

“I don’t really plan on going anywhere,” Irving said. “When I say I’m here with [Kevin Durant], I think that it really entails us managing this franchise together alongside Joe [Tsai] and Sean [Marks].”
lol – 10:16 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Celtics have Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum and made the NBA Finals.
Nets have seven playoff wins in three years of KD/Kyrie and now it all might be breaking up.
I guess Boston did win the trade after all!
(We already knew Boston won that trade about five years ago, yet…) – 9:51 AM
