Videos: Kevin Durant Plays at Rucker, Scores 66

(UPDATED) KD Trey 5 brought his game and backpack to NYC.

Early on Monday evening word surfaced that Kevin Durant would be blessing New York City’s famed Rucker Park with his presence. Less than an hour later he arrived at Rucker, chilled, stretched and warmed up. Shortly thereafter he lit up the night with a breathtaking 66 point performance. How did KD feel about his time in NYC? “No lie, just had one of the best times of my life at Rucker park..wow! I love NY,” tweeted the two-time NBA scoring champ.

The video above is all the footage that’s surfaced so far. Check back later for more.

    Good to see KD at Rucker.

  • Tupack Shackur

    So is this going to spark rumours about KD wanting to play in a major market like NYC?

  • 6marjons

    you know it @Tupack

  • Jer dawg

    Rucker is nuts. When I heard about Dyckman tourney and the hype behind Team Nike I was wondering what happened to Rucker? I thought Rucker was THE top summer tourney spot for hoops. Then this video of KD dropping 66 lets me know Rucker hasn’t lost any of it’s magic.

  • bearwitme

    Glad to see Rucker doin there thing n all… But the melo center n Baltimore has been live these past few weeks

  • Genuivere

    Sick. Its NY so you know its gonna crazy

  • Hurricane

    What is it with dudes from NY dancing like women and touching all on themselves. Man yall are wack as hell.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    ^Agree with this.
    But, Durant’s jumper is nasty. Nasty I say.

  • seriousblack

    Much of the buzz in NY nowadays is about Dcykman but Rucker hasn’t totally fallen off. KD is just a beast. @Hurrican: country boys are not allowed to speak on what’s wack and what’s not, especially as it pertains to The City, so fall back.

  • http://slam.com Chris Mullin’s Accent

    Chris Mullin agrees that it’s wack.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    A grown man dancing in a manner that resembles a grand mal seizure is wack no matter where you’re from. Other men cheering on these activities only makes it worse. Children mimicking this behavior takes it over the top.

  • angus

    good dancin, good ballin kids just havin fun yall jus hatin!

  • T-Money

    if you’re over 25 and you’re doing something else than a basic 2-step, you need to re-evaluate your life.

  • Riggs

    “What is it with dudes from NY dancing like women and touching all on themselves. Man yall are wack as hell.” where did the dougie and jerkin’ come from again?

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    People just love to hate on NY, like the south doesn’t breed some of the most dancing-azz men in the country.

    Anyway, its dope to see KD at the Rucker tearing it down. Really no way to defend a 6’10″ dude with a decent handle that can pull up from 30 feet.

  • jonny

    Man if only 2pac were still alive. Gay-ass NY dudes. Everybody knows this, except them. Rocking pink and being all touchy-feely. I feel ya HURRICANE, that’s a fruity state!!!

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    He looked off his teammates repeatedly during the video, was it fun for them to play with them. Also this dumb gay dancing been happening for a while, yall just catching on to dudes dancing like girls. Also men all across the world dance like this from. I called these dudes Rejects. BOOK IT!!

  • AD

    imagine if kd woulda went to da knicks….. he would get crazy love………. but he can till play for brooklyn

  • bnets

    so what if i spelled defense wrong melo and the knicks dont know the word

    LMAO @ Hurricane’s comment

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Is White Choc just the weirdest dood on planet or what? haha gotta love his enthusiasm though.

  • DieselMechanic

    So I guess the Shaq vs. Dwight and Lebron dance off was “wack” too huh? What is the problem with guys dancing? They are just having fun. All the haters need to take a look at themselves and ask themselves why they get mad when they see a man dancing. Lighten up.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    ^^ Agree, it’s not worth getting all up in arms about. But we can still make fun of dudes actin’ currazzeeee!!

    ^Agree with this.
    Nothing is wrong is grown a** men dancing as long as it’s not me doing the dancing.

  • MLK4Life

    D-Rose and KD…Leaders of the New School.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    At least dude managed to sneak in one assists in there. Sheeeeit, whatever happened to wowing n*ggas with your passing skills? I guess scoring is the only thing that hypes up people nowadays.

  • seriousblack

    Any dudes watching a basketball highlight video fousing on dudes JOKING around and dancing in the background needs to re-evaluate why he’s watching it in the first place. It’s funny that the lames always hating on The City stay checking for what we’re doing, wearing, saying etc even when the focus is on ball lmao

  • bike

    All that dancing was ’cause it was homoerotic night at Rucker Park.

  • justaguy

    @seriousblack – this might fly right over your head, but after reading your comment may I suggest that you never post comments on here again. You sound ignorant, and that’s never a good thing, yo!

  • BostonBaller

    Kevin Durant….Kevin Durant…Kev Durant…K Durant…Kevin D….KD…KD..KD…KD…no matter what you call him he is a lethal weapon.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Can we hand the best offensive player in the L title fully over to KD. His mid range is equal to Melo and Kobe, and his 3 point shot might be better than both. He has an arsenal that no one has. (along with his height) He is virtually unguardable. Unless Artest decides he is guardable.

  • http://twitter.com/Sylvanusuagbor Syl

    The slander on this feed is at an all time high. Everyone know how New Yorkers are…..so no need to address them

  • LP

    thas insane… 66 is 66… on double teams too….off many jumpers too..

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    NY is the mecca of the sport…period. No dispute. I’m not from NY, I’ve spent very little time in NY, but thats something that should be understood by all basketball fans. Anyways yeah, deep down inside (maybe very very deep) everybody out there just a little bit wishes they were from NY

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    ^^ No.. I have absolutley zero against the city or it’s lovely people, but No, I don’t…

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @JTaylor21….nobody ever steps onto a court in NYC, or anywhere else where SERIOUS streetball is being played and says to himself I’m gonna “wow the crowd with passing skills”….when you step into hostile environments where everyone on the court is trying to make a name as the dude who gave you 30, the primary goal is to shut EVERYTHING down…..and uh yep…he did that

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    Peeped Sundiata Gaines in the crowd, think I saw Shane Woney coaching KD’s squad


    Nightmare:(Noun) Having to guard Kevin Durant. FYI, that dancing is a Harlem thing, let it be known we don’t do that in Brooklyn. I’ve been all over America and I have yet to come across another city like New York. None of the major ones come close. Welcome to the EMPIRE STATE KD!

    Always impressed by guys his size with a stroke like that. Once worked out in a gym with Dirk a few years back where he was making EVERY shot he took. The shooting is nice and all, but the consistency leaves me floored. they make every shot look the same, no matter the distance.
    The best Nba players (and probably even lesser ones) are truly obsessed with their game, shot mechanics, reps etc.

  • seriousblack

    @Justagay and the rest of the haters are your typical losers that wish to God they were from NY. It’s not our fault that your city doesn’t matter. Most of the hate comes from the ‘flyover’ country idiots, where the only exposure they have to the rest of the world is their television and slow internet connections. I can speak for the whole city when I say that the opinions of you lames don’t count for anything.

  • seriousblack

    @jonny: wherever your country bum ass is from, I guarantee nobody considers your state an authority on what to wear. I’m pretty sure you’re a typical slob, so refrain from discussing fashion.

  • horsey

    I don’t think anyone was surprised by KD’s limitless range and his not really taking over until the 4th when his team needed the win (he seems like that kind of guy), but to not freak out when people stormed him over and over like that is real class and professionalism. Sure, he’s used to it, but having 20+ people mob you and hang all over you when you just made a big shot can’t be fun. After that angry fastbreak dunk, I’m pretty sure he yelled half because of excitement and half so the people wouldn’t rush so fast…

  • Big M.D.W

    what a beast

  • Tony

    Wish we had that in Salt lake city…
