Kevin Durant passes Allen Iverson on NBA career scoring list

Nets star Kevin Durant said it “means the world” to him to pass Hall of Famer Allen Iverson for 25th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list during Brooklyn’s 123-104 victory over the Celtics here at TD Garden on Wednesday night. “I mean, it means the world. I dedicated my life to this game at an early age … so I watched all these guys that I’m like passing up,” Durant said after scoring 21 points for the Nets, who improved to an Eastern Conference-leading 14-5.

“I wanted to be like them. I wanted to be in the NBA like them, and make an impact in the league like them. So Iverson, he was the pantheon for me. One of those guys that I emulated every time I went outside and played with my friends. It’s all surreal. I pictured I would be in the league, and had an idea … but to do it is pretty special.” For Durant, the meaning of passing Iverson is two-fold. Not only was he a kid when Iverson first exploded onto the NBA scene in the 1996-97 season, but growing up in the Washington, D.C., area, he got a front-row seat to Iverson’s college exploits at Georgetown.
Fortunately for Harrington, he and his partners managed to make the weed taste like champagne and the rest is history. “One thing about Allen [Iverson] is that he used to smoke back in the day and then he stopped,” Harrington revealed via “No Chill with Gilbert Arenas.” “I was telling him like ‘bro if we do this, you’re gonna have to smoke. He said to me ‘If you make weed tastes like Dom Perignon, I’ll smoke it.’ so that’s what we took and I ran with it.” “I was serious about it and what we did was we were able to find the genetic you know with a company that we’re working with that is a great stomp across with secret cushmits that literally when you first light it up it tastes like you’re sipping champagne,” he continued.

Lillard had his favorites — Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Allen Iverson — but it was Iverson whom he held in the highest regard. “I was imitating Iverson because he was small, and he had that neighborhood energy,” Lillard said. “Everybody in my neighborhood loved A.I. So, it was like — a thing. Everybody wore Iversons.”
