This human pogo stick deserves his own thread. I can think of three unstoppable shots off the top of my head in NBA history: Elvin Hayes backing in to the basket on his strong side, then turning around and shooting a fadeaway bank shot; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's sky hook, and Kevin Durant's jump-back from 25 feet. Critics say all he needs to become the "total offensive weapon" is to put on some upper-body muscle; I disagree. Let him wait until later to muscle up; right now, he's so quick that he can do anything - drive past you and tomahawk it, or back off and shoot a three. When he's in his 30s, then he can hit the weights - let him stay slender while he's young. The only comparable player I can think of, style-wise, is Dirk Nowitzki. Tonight, he broke his string of 12 consecutive 30-point games, and he did it by scoring 24 points, going 10-for-12 from the field, sitting out the entire 4th quarter, and dishing out 7 assists - many of them to Serge Ibaka who went 12-for-12 from the field: the two combined to go 22-for-24! This is just crazy what we're witnessing right now. Jordan, Bryant, Maravich, Erving, Bird, James - I've never seen more jaw-dropping highlight reels (although some of Jordan's and Bird's come close). All Durant needs is longevity, and he could well become the NBA's all-time leading scorer.
I had lunch here on Friday, w/ my son. Apparently, it's also Bangkok Golden, but not related to the one at 7 Corners, but a similarly named restaurant in Ft. Washington, MD. It's tucked away on the inside section of a currently 'under construction' strip mall, right across from George Mason. It's small, quite attractive (wood paneled walls, Thai art, windows) & while it was empty when we arrived right before noon, it quickly filled up. We had lunch specials of gai pad kra prow (spicy, all chicken w/ peppers & basil but no other veg) & pepper steak (lots of onions, peppers, tomatoes & beef), they both came w/ rice & Tom yum soup. We also shared an order of larb gai, that was less spicy than I like (more sour & fish-saucy, rather than heat). Service was good, I'm sure we'll return.
