Lovefest for Durant

 

Kevin Durant hoisted 62 shots and scored 63 points, and played all but 15 seconds in 51 minutes of game time. All that, and he still had time to pose for pictures and sign autographs when his car was surrounded by fans as he tried to leave. If there was any questioning if Seattle still loves Durant, it was put to rest Sunday. “I just want to say I miss you guys,” Durant told a crammed small-college gym filled with about 3,000 fans, many in Durant’s old Seattle SuperSonics jersey. “Thank you for the warm welcome.” Durant took part in the Jamal Crawford Summer Pro-Am in Seattle on Sunday. It was his first time back in Seattle in a basketball capacity since the SuperSonics left for Oklahoma City in 2008. – Associated Press
