I don't feel like writing a long review, but this card is unbelievable. He is easily the best card in the game that I have used (I don't have the 97 diamond Tracy Mcgrady or Vince Carter because they are too expensive to get). This Kevin Durant card could do anything imaginable. YOU WILL SEE BY CLICKING THE LINKS.
Link 3 ANKLE BREAKER DUNK: http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/TYLENOL32/video/27740759
I bought this card for 350,000 MT (All of my last MT)
Strengths: -He is a green machine from the 3pt line. If he is open, you know the shot will go in almost all of the time.
-He is an amazing finisher near the rim.
-He takes the contact and finishes and 1 layups.
-He is an unbelievable dunker.
-His animations allow him to dunk in traffic without getting blocked.
-Let me tell you, his handles are outstanding. I have broken so many ankles with him.
-He hits a lot of contested mid-range shots, with that amethyst mid-range deadeye.
-He has a very quick release. If you get the release right, it is going to be green. Having said that, it is tough at the start to get his release right, but go to practice and the timing will come naturally.
-His off ball speed is incredible. If you get the rebound on defense, Durant flies down the court for the fastbreak. Makes sure you hit him in stride so that you don't turn the ball over.
There are only a few weaknesses with this card. The first weakness is his lateral quickness on defense. It isn't terrible, but you will get beat off the dribble sometimes because of it.
- His other weakness is his speed with the ball. I was expecting him to be faster with the ball, but he seems a little slow to me. He still gets crazy ankle breakers though.
Recommended Strategy: Put Durant at the 4 because he is a match-up problem for every PF. Don't force any shots, especially threes, because he will miss them if you are shooting in two guys faces. Take the ball to the hole because finishing is his strength. Take open threes because he will green it if you have his timing down.
Use if: You want one of the best players in the game.
Don't use if: You want to waste all of your MT on one player.
Bottom Line: 97 Diamond Kevin Durant is a great player if you know how to use him right. Some people don't like him because all they do is force shots with him. Let the game come naturally to him then you will love this card and his play will show for that.
