@Waldorfsfinest then directly asks KD: “You couldn’t score 81 if you were jacking up shots like Kobe?” Durant responds with a series of Tweets, basically defending the degree of difficulty of scoring 81 in a game. Translation: This stuff isn’t easy. The NBA is hard. Give Kobe his props. Oklahoman

On Thursday, new Lakers head coach Byron Scott made an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show and talked about a number of different topics. Randle came up in the conversation with Scott comparing the rookie forward to Zach Randolph of the Memphis Grizzlies: “I know the young kid is very gifted, offensively. He rebounds the ball, he can score in the post. He’s probably got about 15-foot range, handle the ball extremely well for a big man. Pretty athletic. I look at him as Zach Randolph, but more athletic. “And I think in a few years he’s going to be a monster once he really learns what the NBA is all about and that’s what I’m looking forward to.” Lakers Nation

We went back for our first day and got to meet and be with all the kids. They were great kids. I talked to a lot of them and it was a lot of fun and interesting because so many spoke multiple languages. There really were a lot of kids there with a lot of talent. One kid caught my eye; plays exactly like Jeremy Lin. Had a great jump shot, very smart on the court. I think there’s a lot of talent here and they are just learning. Then we got a chance to walk around Bangkok, which is the capital. Walking around and seeing the sites and enjoying some good and different food was fun. We got to meet some great local people.

We got to see some of the nightlife. NBA.com
