Kevin Durant Copies Lebron James, Tackles Half Court Shot Contestant

Is it me or is Kevin Durant trying to do Lebron things more and more?  We all remember when Lebron James tackled that fan for hitting $75,000 on the half court shot.  Honestly, how can you justify tackling a fan for $20,000 then?  I just hope KD doesn't pull a Lebron to form a new superteam somewhere else. Before you say, "But Durant signed an extension" remember...
