Watch Kevin Durant's Sick Double-Crossover on DeMar DeRozan

Roy BurtonContributor INovember 13, 2016

When Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant isn't starring in one of the best commercials of the year, he's busy showing us why he may be the most unguardable player in the NBA.

Toronto's DeMar DeRozan was the latest to learn how difficult it is to check the three-time scoring champion. On a seemingly routine play during the fourth quarter of today's Raptors-Thunder game, the 6'9" Durant did a double-crossover move that left DeRozan gasping for air and even caused the crowd at the Air Canada Centre to gasp in amazement.

Durant's first move was enough to get DeRozan out of position, but then the "Durantula" chose to bring the ball back to the left side so that he could attack the rim with the least amount of resistance. He finished the play so effortlessly that it's not hard to see why Durant is one of the standard-bearers in the NBA.

Here are a couple of tweets from writers who couldn't help but show their appreciation for Durant's athleticism:

 

Kevin Durant with a double crossover move, hop step, and a scoop layup. No big deal.

Durant is damn near 7-feet! RT @marcel_mutoni: Devastating RT @slamonline: Kevin Durant W/ Double-Crossover on DeRozan bit.ly/ZtVj39

The play was just a microcosm of Durant's performance against the Raptors: The Thunder forward scored 22 points on just 11 shots, and he also grabbed seven rebounds and tallied seven assists in Oklahoma City's 104-92 victory.

A double-crossover is tough for a player of any size to pull off, and is especially impressive when it comes from someone with the length of Durant. Thinking back, this move reminds us of a similar double-crossover that Durant may not be old enough to remember...
