  • Kevin Durant can score at will from anywhere on the court, but his midrange jumper is what vaulted him from being an elite scorer to an all-time-great offensive threat. In this episode of Signature Shots, ESPN analyst Kirk Goldsberry explains why Durant's midrange game makes him impossible to defend. #NBA #Sports

    Kevin Durant is obviously my favourite player of this era basketball because he is equally efficient in any area of the offensive half court 2pt-3pt(only other players to be efficient on the 2pt area and 3pt area were Jordan and Kobe). Being a lover of of the old school basketball, Durant, LeBron, Anthony are the last flag bearer of the old school basketball because of their efficiency or else they too could not stand in this modern NBA era.

    Ok ESPN, now that you made a similar video highlighting Kobe's signature midrange jumper, bestowing him the last pure midrange shooter. So who do you got? Next video should be KD vs Kobe's midrange: Who's signature weapon really is it?

    Kobe said the only person he could not figure out how to defend was Durant. That speaks for itself.

    hot take from a player who plays like kobe: the mid range isnt a bad shot, you're just bad at the shot.

    So weird watching Bill Russell congratulate a player for the Warriors. Back when he was terrorizing the league obviously he hated Wilt's team.
