Durant has been the best player in the Finals so far, and KD’s performance on Sunday had Pierce ready to anoint him as the NBA’s alpha dog. Starting at 0:32:
“He’s a once-in-a-lifetime, generational player.
“He’s 7 feet. He can shoot the three-pointer. He can drive to the basket, dunk on you. Pull up in the mid-range. He just has so much in the arsenal.
“He may be the best player in the world today.”
Durant scored 33 points (on 13-22 shooting) and became just the second player to record at least 30 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 blocks in a Finals game.
