I feel like our children’s generation and their children’s generation are going to look back upon our generation and have a gross underappreciation of Kevin Durant. Maybe it’s because of all the narratives floating around but I rarely hear him mentioned as one of the greats. Because in my mind, granted my mind is small and has been heavily influenced by trees and mushrooms, he is one of the greatest to ever play the game. He’s a seven-footer who has handles like a guard, is a career 1/1/1 player, a career 27-point scorer, and a career 49/38/88 shooter. He’s got the hardware and is one of the most unstoppable offensive forces in the game. Because he’s missed so much time this year due to injury, he’s been out of the consciousness of many but Dudeisamazingant reminded us of his ability yesterday.

In 40 minutes. The 58th time Dudeisamazingant has scored at least 40 points in a game. Durant has played 28 games this season and he’s the number six player on a per-game basis for fantasy. Over the last seven seasons, he’s finished as the numero uno player for fantasy three times and been top five in six seasons. I hope he stays healthy so I can continue to watch his greatness.

Here’s what else I saw yesterday:

DeAndre Jordan

1011011104/72/3

Got the start and played 24 minutes. Sometimes he doesn’t play at all. Other times he boards and blocks like a maniac. This DJ has too many scratched vinyls to be counted on to deliver smooth beats.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT

Just another G delivering a W. Hey, who’s that in the bushes?

Khris Middleton

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
261162003/711/211/1

Top 40 player on the season. He’s going to be a frightening player when he hits the YMCA circuit. Like a fine wine, his game is going to age well.

Robert Covington

Our Lord always delivers on Sunday.

Jusuf Nurkic

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
141142011/16/101/1

He’s been capped at 29 minutes but Nurkic has been super effective in those minutes. This could be a very dangerous team come playoff time.

Damian Lillard

Jayson Tatum

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
33250164/511/197/7

He wasn’t going to score 60 every night. Geez.

At the end of the game, both he and Jaylen Brown bumped into each other after guarding an inbounds pass. Both went to the locker room. It doesn’t sound serious but something to monitor.

Marcus Smart

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
11880033/94/140

What if his parents named him Iam? What about Ain’t? Berry could work. The counting stats are great, but it’d be Smart not to look at the efficiency.

Jaylen Brown

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
161140031/96/223/4

What can Brown do for you?

Obviously shit on your percentages.

Trevor Ariza

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
9733211/43/62/4

SSS. Please don’t stick out your arm like that. Top 50 player over the last four games. He’s averaging 28.7 minutes and been a 1/1/1 player. He is truly providing across-the-board production.

Jimmy Butler

18881100/15/88/9

This Butler cleans up the boards, dishes out party favors, and does everything around the house.

Bam Adebayo

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
2071010309/132/3

I have visions of Bam being Jokic-esque soon. No, this has nothing to do with the fact that I drafted him in the 30-team dynasty league. Seriously. Ok, maybe a little but I’ve believed in him since that Summer League before his rookie year. He has no tres in his game but I think that could come at some point. Let’s compare the two seasons when both Bam and Jokic were 23 years old.

In 13 minutes. He lives! A Dedmon walking.

Goran Dragic

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
18221131/67/183/3

In 30 minutes off the bench. If he dies, he dies.

PJ Washington

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
21603023/69/130

Starting at center, as the Hornets go small and fast. Smart with LaMelo back. If he keeps this up, Jordan is going to have to get a whole lot of Washingtons to keep Washington.

LaMelo Ball

Terry Rozier

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
14331002/45/102/2

Played 27 minutes. With Ball back, the usage plummeted to 18. Without Ball, that number was in the mid to high 20s.

Cody Martin only played seven minutes due to spraining his left ankle. Devonte’ Graham was the replacement and he should see elevated minutes if Martin is out for an extended period of time.

Marvin Bagley III

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
23931021/310/162/3

I’ve been in and out on Bagley so much that the local pimp be shaking his head. Someone get me protection.

Tyrese Haliburton

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
11251022/44/81/1

Only played 23 minutes due to suffering a knee injury. This could be more disastrous than the Exxon Valdez.

Luka Doncic

Got ejected because the NBA is faaaaaaantastic.

Julius Randle

31761034/913/221/1

In only 30 minutes because the Rockets suck.

Nerlens Noel only played 11 minutes because it was Sunday Bloody Sunday. He also sprained his ankle. The Taj Gibson played 32 minutes and will be open to the public for extended hours. Let’s check out Thibs in the locker room….

In 31 minutes. Every Rose may have its thorns but Derrick looks to be reborn! Hallelujah!

RJ Barrett

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
21752023/77/164/5

In 40 minutes! Top 50 player over the last three games, averaging a ridiculous 42.3 minutes. He’s shooting 44% from the field and 74% from the line on the season after posting numbers of 40% and 61% in his rookie season. He’s still only 20 years old!!!

The Knicks have won nine of their last 10 games and are 4th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 36-28.

Kelly Olynyk

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
171073131/45/106/7

SSS! The Big O has been very satisfying. Women across the world are nodding their heads in unison. Top 25 player over the last eight games. Women across the world have been descending to Houston to see if the sustainability of the Big O has something to do with the water or the air. Maybe the shale revolution has been leaking some new gases into the atmosphere.

Torrey Craig

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
181011201/28/101/2

SSS! We could build an army! I kid, I kid. Hey! Put your arm down. When Torrey Craig is getting busy, you know that A) the opponent super sucks or B) the Suns truly are a team of density.

Chris Paul

Like a good neighbor, Paul has elevated the property value for everyone! The best kind of neighbor. The one that puts $$$ into your pocket.

Devin Booker

32362041/411/229/10

A professional getter of buckets. I love watching the old Team USA practice videos where they go one-on-one. Booker so smooth getting buckets. Anyways, for fantasy, he’s been underwhelming because of the lack of defensive stats, which is ironic because the Suns are one of the best defensive teams in the league. Go Phoenix Sons!!! Land of the Rising Son!

Aleksej Pokusevski only played 10 minutes due to a knee contusion. Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Gabriel Deck

Truly all hands on Deck for the Tanktanic.

Theo Maledon

On the season, Maledon is shooting 37% from the field. TMI.

I’m old enough to remember when folks said that the 76ers should trade Embiid and build around BS. Ha!

Dwight Howard

1411103105/114/4

In 18 minutes. When Stayin’ in Yo Lane goes right.

No Derrick White, Dejounte Murray, DeMar DeRozan, or Jakob Poelt for the Spurs.

Rudy Gay

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
181022042/67/172/2

In a season-high 36 minutes. Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Always root for the underdog

Keldon Johnson

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
19653022/47/183/5

Top 75 player over the last four games, averaging 35.7 minutes per game. This Johnson has elevated and received more play, satisfying to all who were counting on him.

Gorgui Dieng

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
17432023/45/64/4

In 31 minutes off the bench. Dieng it!!!

Lonnie Walker IV

This Walker label is still relatively young but it tastes good in small sips. Not diverse enough to pour in all settings though.

Pascal Siakam

391342244/815/265/7

This is what I was envisioning when I drafted him in the third round of drafts. P.S. – I did not have a good season. Granted, maybe drafting Anthony Davis had something to do with that. P.S. – he’s good.

Kyle Lowry

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
372111018/1312/205/6

In 41 minutes. Someone gonna get paid this offseason.

Anthony Davis

12973110/35/162/3

If only he didn’t get hurt. I could’ve been a contender! Slaps self. It’s Anthony Davis. Of course he’s gonna get hurt.

LeBron James

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
19760052/56/115/7

Left the game after 28 minutes due to a sore ankle. The new Anthony Davis?

Andre Drummond

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
1911110008/143/4

In 26 minutes. Since arriving in Los Angeles, Dre has been a top 70 player, averaging 26.1 minutes, 13.1 points, 11 boards, 1.5 dimes, 1.5 steals, and one block. The usage rate has been 22.8. It’s kind of funny that the Lakers now have the AD Twin Towers.

Alex Caruso

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
7450011/43/90/2

Got the start and played 26 minutes. Only missing the 6 and the 8. Hmmm, why do I have the sudden urge to shoot dice?

Kyle Kuzma

PTSREBASTSTLBLKTOV3PTFGFT
24301216/118/162/2

In 36 minutes off the bench. Kuzma can score but the efficiency isn’t great. For him to be a viable fantasy option, he needs to either start dishing out more dimes or contribute more on D. Kendall Jenner is like, “That’s what I’ve been saying for years!”
