VIDEO: Nets’ Kevin Durant picks the 5 players’ highlights he’d want to watch forever


Brooklyn Nets All-Star Kevin Durant recently joined Bleacher Report for a wide-ranging interview. As part of the discussion, the two-time champion was asked which five players he would pick if he could only watch their highlights forever.

“If you could only watch basketball highlights of five players forever, who are the players?” Bleacher Report asked Durant during their interview.

Durant was able to rattle off his top two selections with ease, noting that he would watch Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan highlights first. However, Durant had to pause before continuing his list.

“Kobe, Mike… Damn, that’s tough,” Durant said as he thought about the rest of his reply. “Shaq, Magic and Bron.”

“If I couldn’t watch anyone else, and I just had to watch those five, I think I’d be good the rest of my life,” Durant added.

A fine list from Durant featuring some of the best to ever play — from a player who has racked up several impressive highlights of his own.

Durant joined the Nets prior to the start of this season, signing a four-year, $164 million contract. However, he has yet to take the floor with his new team, as he’s still recovering from an Achilles injury. According to most reports, the ailment will keep him sidelined for the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign.

The Nets (25-28) will be back in action on Thursday night, when they’ll face off against the Sixers. Brooklyn will be looking to improve on a two-game winning streak. Philadelphia has won each of its last three.
