Kevin Durant dunks, looks pretty good off the dribble in new video
No, Kevin Durant is not going to play a minute for the Brooklyn Nets this season as he recovers from a torn Achilles.
But that recovery seems to be going pretty sell, according to this video, posted earlier today by Durant’s brother on Instagram.

That’s not a folding chair or a coach that Durant is blowing past, it’s an NBA player. A rookie not known for defense, but still an NBA player.
Durant and Kyrie Irving — out the rest of this season following shoulder surgery — should be healthy and ready to try and push the Nets into title contention next season. Who will coach that team is still up in the air, but it is a team with the star power to compete with anyone in the East.
