It seems like Kevin Durant’s been dunking on everybody lately, you say? Well, that’s because Kevin Durant has been dunking on everybody lately. With this running one-hander over Shane Battier, Durant collects his 5th POTD of the 2012 playoffs, a postseason record. He actually set a new standard with his 4th poster, too, as no one had ever achieved more than three in any single playoff (Durant just so happened to have three last year). Although his latest poster isn’t one that’ll knock your socks off, the sheer volume we’re dealing with here is impressive to say the least.
Win, lose, or tie in the NBA Finals, I’d say The Kid KD’s got that playoff poster award in the bag for a second consecutive season.

As long as I can do something Grant Hill didnt do, Battier, a Miami forward, said with a laugh Saturday about the possibility of...
LeBron James cannot do it all himself and in Game 2 of the NBA finals he got help from his teammates especially Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The big three and Shane Battier carried the Heat to a 100-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bosh and Wade both bounced back from weak games in game 1.
Bosh started for this game for the first time after being injured. This was...
The Miami Heat played a wonderful first half and did just enough in the fourth quarter to hold of a momentous rally and send thousands of Oklahoma City fans home shaking their heads. Shane Battier might have been the MVP of that game if SF LeBron James did not steal the show and prove himself in the Durant vs. James argument with an identical point line and better numbers...
