How I Fell in love (My Background Story)

First i am very new to blogging and i’m very excited to tell my story. Sharing my insight on basketball concepts, players, and trends. My goal is to someday be in the NBA world. My dream is to one day be an NBA Executive.

I grew up in the 90’s in Hartford ,Connecticut, we didn’t have major sports teams. Growing up i was surrounded by NBA fanatics.

My Story:

I love everything about basketball i live, breath, and i enjoy talking about it to anyone and everyone who is willing to listen. My ideas are always progressing about basketball and how the game is forever evolving. I started watching the NBA in the mid 90’s with my father who was also passionate about sports. In my house during the mid 90’s Michael Jordan was the greatest player to ever. My first time as a kid remembering Micheal Jordan playing is when he came back from out of retirement during the 95 season i remember seeing him play against the Orlando Magic in the playoffs. Like every kid from that era we love MJ and wanted to be just like him. I would go in backyard and shot hoops thinking i would be the next MJ. Unfortunately my basketball career was derailed with injuries and misfortunes that life brought to me. But never the less my passion for the game of basketball has become even stronger now. I’ve been watching the NBA now for over 20 seasons and a lot has changed about basketball.

Fast Forward:

Since i’m an adult now i don’t have the time like i used to play basketball, but when i do get the chance. I still talk a lot about basketball to my friends, family, and of course random people that want to debate or just chat about basketball. Recently this year my wife had gotten me a basketball, because she said i talk about it so much. The real joke is the last time i actually played basketball. Ya i would play random pick up games every so often but would often get discourage because of my height and my lack of progression. I couldn’t even remember the last time i played a somewhat competitive game.  Well this past summer i actually started training again for basketball on my days off early Saturday morning’s i will spend 2-3 hours just shooting, practicing dribbling drills, and other drills. I started feeling really good about myself. Started watching basketball videos of how i can improve my game.

3 things that drastically changed about my basketball game:

Basketball IQ (Vision)

Shooting

Dribbling

I have been practicing for about 5 months but since it’s getting cold i’m thinking about joining a league soon. I will keep you updated on my dream to one day become an NBA Executive.

Kevin Durant All Time Scorer

This is why I believe Kevin Durant will end up as the NBA all time leader in scoring when he retires.

(If he doesn’t have a serious injury)

He is a pure scorer. Kevin Durant 29. In the NBA today the game has become a lot less physical. Especially from the the 20-30 years ago. Well Durnat, has at least 8-10 years left of playing or maybe more. We can all see Kevin Durant playing for a long time with a few nicks and injuries along the way. But this man has never scored less than 20 points per game ever since he been in the league. He will only get better over during his prime years of playing basketball.

7 Ft tall and he’s only getting better. So far his best season statistically was when he won MVP of the league (2013-2014) When he ended up averaging 32 points shooting at .503%. Kevin Durant has 4 scoring titles. I believe he has the same playing style of Dirk Nowitzki currently he is 39. He is a 6th all time in scoring and i believe Kevin Durant is a more efficient player than Dirk and will be in his prime much longer due to how the league is all about offense and 3 point shooting.

Currently he is averaging 26 points off 18 shots.

His MVP season He averaged 32 points off 21 shots.

His role with the Warriors is for him to efficient scorer, remember he shares the scoring load with Splash Brothers (Curry, Thompson). Hence why he is taking fewer shots.

Currently he is at 19,712 points and is still counting which ranks his 44th in all time scoring in his 9th season. His career average is 27.2 points. Which is 2 points higher than Kobe Bryant who ranks 3rd all time in scoring who played 19 seasons and was a great scorer during his prime and career.

The All-Time scoring leader is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who sits at 38,387 points and he has played in 20 season to eclipse that mark.

This being KD 9th year puts him on a great projection to be the all time leading scorer once he hangs it up.
