In three seconds: two passes thrown, roughly 72 feet of hardwood spanned, zero dribbles taken, and suddenly Kevin Durant has yammed it hard. This season we’ve been blessed by frequent instances of Russ and Giannis singlehandedly wrecking shit on the run, but this, um, heartwarming display of teamwork beats them all out as the best fast break to date.
Take your pick of reference—Showtime Lakers, LeBron/Wade at their quarterbacking peak, NBA Street Vol. 2—but any comparison would obscure how infuriatingly this possession sums up this particular stacked Warriors squad. Yes, their fourth guy missed out on the fun, but he was busy amassing 60 points in 29 minutes.
I feel ill.
