Video: Kevin Durant, Victor Oladipo face off in Goodman League

Tuesday August 27th, 2013

Though summer basketball leagues get bogged down in one-on-one play far too often, there's still something engaging about two NBA-level scorers challenging one another. That's particularly true when all of the filler -- those long stretches of empty possessions and nonexistent ball movement -- are edited out, leaving only a highlight-laden duel for consumption in brief.

That's exactly the case with this snippet from the Goodman League in Washington, D.C., in which Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant and No. 2 pick Victor Oladipo of Orlando attack one another off the dribble. Neither player is going full speed defensively, but the exchange is worth watching all the same for Durant's airy, effortless touch and Oladipo's impressive range.
