Kevin Durant’s Post-Game Kindness: Poses for Photos and Handshakes with Exhausted Fans

Kevin Durant achieved a special career milestone on Tuesday night after scoring 31 points for the Phenix Suns in their 120-107 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

His points tally saw him overtake Elvin Hayes in the NBA’s list of all-time points scorings in his 1,000th game, and now ranks 11th overall. “Being amongst the all-time greats, the guys who set the standard and made the NBA what it is today is an honor. It’s pretty cool and I just gotta keep going,” said Durant after the game.
