Video: Kevin Durant Destroys ‘Baby LeBron’ heckler

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: We already knew Kevin Durant was great. That didn’t stop the scoring champ` from providing further proof at the Nike Pro City run.

A small contingent of fans were heckling him. These brave, and stupid, souls called the All-Star ‘baby LeBron’ and even chanted ‘Russell Westbrook’.

Rather than overreact or become distracted, Durant became a stone-cold assassin.

He acknowledged the hecklers. He engaged them, ever-so slightly. He let them think, for a moment, they were winning. He then took over in spectacular fashion, hitting the game-tying and game-winning shot.

When it was over, when he had won, he gave a little thanks-for-trying wave. This was not overt or boastful, for Durant had merely done what he was supposed to do.

Others can learn from such a display. Rather than respond like an E-Thug on twitter or declare through the media he’d get revenge, Durant simply went about his business.

And boy was it refreshing!
