The ‘Durantula’ Kevin Durant Hijacks NBA’s Spectacle, Thunder Will Beat Lakers

April 27th, 2010 by Jonathan Mathis Leave a reply »

We’re witnessing an NBA postseason of drama with an unexpected franchise residing in Oklahoma City, where the crowd intensifies the loudest frenzies at Ford Center, arguably the clamorous building in the league. Whoever predicted that an erratic postseason would be entertained with action-packed, dramatic performances of Kevin Durant, the league’s youngest scoring champ and now potential Most Valuable Player?

All of this frightens the Los Angeles Lakers, the defending champs who are bullied, harassed and tortured by a young and inexperienced franchise with nothing to lose. In a probable upset, the Thunder is testing the Lakers mentality and brings out Kobe Bryant’s age, when the recent letdowns and ineffectual shot attempts unmasks that he’s aging and breaking down physically. The nagging injuries makes the Black Mamba appears as if he’s the oldest veteran remaining in the league, close to retiring and hanging his No. 24 jersey in the rafters of Staples Center.
