(ESPN)   Kevin Durant's decision to withdraw from Team USA is because of fatigue, and is absolutely in no way at all due to OkC looking at Paul George's horrific leg injury and saying "Yeah, you're pulling out of that shiat"   (espn.go.com ) divider line

I think it's time to accept that Kevin Durant is by-far the most overrated player in the league.  The only reason this chump won a scoring title is because he scored more points than everyone else.  And yet, when you point this out in conversation, people nod their head and tell you to leave the premises.  Pretty much shows you how both the casual fan and the casual police officer have been brainwashed.  Micheal Jordon wasn't marketed as a star, and whenever they wanted to put him in commercials, Micheal stressed that he did not want to be portrayed in an unfair light.  But there's a reason he's on so many clothing brands now: Because he was literally god on Earth, the greatest human being to ever walk the planet.  Can't say that about Kevin Durant, though.  Kevin Durant has only been to one NBA Finals and five All-Star games.  I've been to zero NBA Finals and zero All-Star games and you don't hear me bragging about it.  And yet, people thinks this makes Kevin a good basketball player.  Well, you know who's a good basketball player in my mind?  Micheal Jeffery Jordon.  I remember going to a Bulls game when I was a kid.  The ushers wondered how I got to the baseline, and asked where my parents were.  I said "Micheal Jordon is my father."  They apologized for interrupting and bought me one of those jumbo-sized popcorn barrels that you see in the movies.  That was when Micheal Jordon drove to the basket and hit the slam dunk.  It was the first time a professional basketball player had ever dunked a basketball.  The game stopped for four hours as they ushered in a bronze statue of Richard J. Daley and drew Micheal's face on it.  While the real Micheal had to leave at halftime to film a shoe commercial, the statue scored thirty points and hit the game winner.  I could not believe what I had seen.  And yet, the only thing Kevin Durant can see is that he will never win a championship.  And it's a real shame too, because I think that Durant has the potential to be one of the 200 best players in the league.  He's about three inches taller than the average American, meaning that he will be able to shoot the ball over the numerous 5'7 and 5'8 players who are incredibly common in the NBA.  If Kevin had played four years at Texas, he probably could have been that player.  But Kevin has been in the league for seven seasons now.  Micheal won seven championships in his first seven seasons.  Why can't you be more like Micheal Jeffery Jordon?

Could have lived my whole life without seeing it.

This sucks. They just asked Gay to join the team.

I was hoping to see the US send a great squad to go up against the Spanish team who are probably making their last real run with the Gasol brothers.

Even without Durant, the team should still wipe the floor with everyone.

I haven't seen the actual injury video of it happening either... where does it rank compared to Joe Theisman?

It's worse for two reasons.

1) Since I was subjected to Joe Theismann's broadcasting career before seeing the video, I don't feel bad about that one.
2) You kind of expect to have a bone break in Theismann's case. In George's...well, it's kind like Kevin Ware's in that it's an awkward landing but dammmnnnn it reminds you that there's a hell of a lot of velocity going around on the basketball court.
