Kevin Durant led the Brooklyn Nets to a blowout victory against Eastern Conference rivals Boston Celtics, surpassing Allen Iverson in the NBA All-Time scoring list in the process.
Durant is now 25th on the list, behind Ray Allen, and will be looking to climb higher as time goes on. The Nets’ superstar reflected on surpassing Iverson, and how humbled he was to do so.
In the post-game press conference, Durant said he looked up to AI growing up. He tried to imitate him as a kid, and he did the same a month ago, as the Nets’ superstar reached to 24,000 points in his 888th games.
Iverson needed the same number of games to reach the same goal. It’s almost certain that Durant will surpass many NBA legends as he becomes better every year.
“I watched all of these guys I’m passing up. I wanted to be like them, I wanted to be in the NBA like them and make an impact in the league like them. Iverson was a pantheon for me,” Durant said on passing AI.
