Kevin Durant Thinks LeBron James Passed The Torch To Him In Last Year’s Finals

 

NBA Finals 2017, Game 3 in Cleveland. The Cleveland Cavaliers lead 113-111 with 47 seconds left in the 4th quarter.

Then, Kevin Durant pulls up for the 3-pointer over LeBron James and makes it. The Cavaliers can’t recover from that dagger and the Warriors take a commanding 3-0 series lead.

You all know how the series ended. The Warriors won the Championship.

In an interview with Zach Baron of QQ, Durant now shared his thoughts about this career defying moment.

 

“That was the best moment I ever had,” Durant told me. “I made the game-winning shot in the finals against my fucking idol. Somebody that I really, really, really followed since I was a ninth-grade high schooler. I felt like he was passing the torch to me.”

 

While it’s good to be confident, I highly doubt that LeBron has passed along the torch. The way James has been playing to start the season proves that he still is the King of the league.
