Kevin Durant returns to Seattle in summer pro-am game
SEATTLE (AP) -- Kevin Durant hoisted 62 shots and scored 63 points, 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.
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. He was the NBA Rookie of the Year in Seattle in the 2007-08 season and has an affinity for his first professional city.
Durant reached out to Crawford to try and figure out a way to make an appearance. A summer of waiting finally came to fruition Sunday as 3,000 fans packed a small-college gym to see Durant, Crawford and other NBA players put on a show.
