Tonight, the New Orleans Pelicans will face the Oklahoma City Thunder and star Kevin Durant. He is the type of player that is almost impossible to stop offensively, and is having a MVP caliber year.
Pelicans head coach Monty Williams said that Durant reminded him of Len Bias the former Maryland player who was taken by the Boston Celtics in 1986 at the second pick, but unfortunately died before he ever took the floor in the NBA:
Pelicans coach Monty Williams on Durant: "He reminds me of what Len Bias would have been if he would have played in the league."
