Kevin Durant Drew League dunk off backboard video

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant throws down a vicious dunk off the backboard during Drew League play. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Until the 2011 NBA playoffs, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant wasn't known as a dunker. Sure, he was the NBA's best scoring machine, armed with an arsenal of perimeter moves and a soft touch on his jumper. But he wasn't ferocious.

Of course, that reputation changed completely when he went up and over Dallas Mavericks reserve center Brendan Haywood in the Western Conference Finals, throwing down the best dunk of the 2010-2011 NBA season.  

Durant apparently isn't content to stop there. Over the weekend, Durant has been playing in Los Angeles' famed Drew League, a loosely-organized summer league tournament that features NBA players, college players, rappers, you name it.

In this video posted to YouTube by HoopMixTape, Durant rises up high once again. Leaking out in transition, Durant underhand scoops the ball off the backboard from nearly the three point line. He then races ahead to catch the carom as two defenders look on, snagging the ball with one hand well above the rim and tomahawking it down through cleanly, all in one motion.

The dunk causes the gym to erupt and play to stop, as everyone takes a moment to process what just happened.

Have a look.

For comparison's sake, here's Durant bashing over Haywood one more time.

Kevin Durant Drew League dunk off backboard video

We always knew he was a great player and a good young man, but now that he is adding a little attitude with some toughness, the sky is the limit for him.
