Who needs the NBA when you've got the Rucker? The world's biggest basketball league may be going through a lockout, but fans at the street hoop mecca couldn't care less as they got to watch star Kevin Durant put on a clinic.
During a game on Monday, August 1, 2011, Kevin Durant made a surprise appearance at the Rucker where he put up 66 points. Durant did most of his damage from behind the three-point line though he did have some nice drives to the basket.
Durant is part of a long list of NBA players who have showed up at the Rucker. Back in the day, greats like Julius "Dr. J" Erving, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Connie Hawkins all played at the Rucker. Modern stars like Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter and now Durant have also come to pay tribute to what many basketball fans consider hallowed ground.
