Once a boy who watched legends on the radio or posters posted at school, when Kevin Durant entered the NBA, he still spent time surfing YouTube, poring over highlights of the greatest players.

Being able to stand with legends like this is a great privilege for me. It is the result of a long process of hard training, requiring a lot of physical and mental preparation. I also don’t forget the many people who helped me get to where I am today ,” Durant shared.

Unfortunately, the day KD reached a special milestone was a day that lacked the feeling of finishing (only 8-25 FG), and at the same time he and his teammates did not get to enjoy the feeling of victory.

The day of reaching the historic milestone was an unhappy day for Durant when he and his teammates could not win against the defending champion Denver Nuggets.

Topping the NBA’s all-time scoring list is LeBron James, who as of December 2 had scored 39,124 points. The Los Angeles Lakers star was also one of the first colleagues to post on social media to congratulate Durant.
