Big 12 NBA Player of the Week For Week 13 - Kevin Durant

New, 1 comment

Well, the rule around here is normally that if you average a double-double you get selected as the Big 12 NBA Player of the Week. The rule also holds that if you average over 30 points a game in a week you get the award.

So when Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant averaged 36.3 points and 11 rebounds a game over the past week, well, it pretty much was a slam dunk (like what I did there, eh? SLAM DUNK). And not that he needed anything else to push him over the top, but he ended the week with 2.3 assists and nearly one block per game as icing on the cake.

Durant won despite more highlight reel moves from LA Clippers rookie Blake Griffin. Griffin's 3600 lay-up and 50-foot alley-oop receptions deserve to be seen, so enjoy
