Seattle Supersonics rookie Kevin Durant hit a three at the end of a 2nd overtime last night to lead the streaking Sonics past the Atlanta Hawks 126-123 last night.
Sonics coach P.J. Carlesimo praised guard Wally Szczerbiak for making a nearly perfect pass to the rookie star. "Wally made a good decision, and Kevin was able to get off the shot and hit it," Carlesimo said. "He'll probably do this many, many times before his career is over."
Yes, it's all in the pass. The article doesn't say whether it was a bounce pass or a chest pass, but white players are experts at both. If there's one thing you can say about white players it's that they know they're fundamentals, such as accurate and timely passing . . . to their black teammates. Cleveland also won last night, as LeBron James scored 40 points to help defeat the Jazz and stole the ball from Carlos Boozer to end the game:
"That's my guy," James said. "I love him. We had a great year and were starting to do some great things. I know the fans may not see it that way, but I have no hard feelings for Booze."
I love booze too, and I never harbor any ill will against him even when I awaken in an alley with my trousers undone and some scenes missing in memory of the revelry of the previous night. Although, I wish he'd let me know before I'm served with summons to court. -KD
