LeBron James has proven himself as the best basketball player in the world. Kevin Durant has made it clear he is No. 2 and plans to eventually catch LeBron.
LeBron and Durant went at it in the NBA Finals this past season with the Heat getting the best of the Thunder and taking home the championship. Now the two rivals are playing together representing Team USA Basketball in the London Olympics.
LeBron and Durant like each other. They have bonded before, last summer working out together and participating in charity basketball and flag football games. We see it again this summer with Team USA and in particular this video as LeBron teaches Durant his “unstoppable move.”
LeBron makes this ridiculous fake-right-handed-hook-shot-into-left-handed-hook-shot look incredibly easy. It’s just amazing how this looks like a routine move for him. Durant has some work to do with this move though and is unable to pull it off at all.
LeBron and Durant are far and away the two best players for Team USA Basketball this summer. Durant came off the bench in the team’s first two exhibition games but is starting against Great Britain today and should continue to do so going forward.
The versatility of Team USA is embodied the most with LeBron and Durant as they have shared the floor as the four and five for a lot of minutes so far with this team. The bread and butter for Team USA will be when the two stars work together and they’ll be the most deadliest when they run the pick-and-roll together.
Team USA may be at their best though just throwing it into LeBron in the post. This video is testament to just how far he has come as a post-up player as he has now truly developed the most unstoppable move in all of basketball.
