That's actually not true. Check this out
. A handful of other guys have done it, but that doesn't really take much away from Durant. It's a hell of an impressive accomplishment. I'm tempted to credit him for being the first black guy to do it, but Reggie Miller did it in 93-94 and he barely
Speaking of this club, Bird did it twice in 86-87 and 87-88. Look at his numbers for those seasons:
86-87: 28.1 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 7.6 apg, 1.8 spg
87-88: 29.9 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 6.1 apg, 1.6 spg
Those 2 seasons were definitely Bird's peak (he got hurt the next year, his back gave out after that and he was never the same). Don't his numbers match up pretty well with the guy this thread is named after? People always love to compare Lebron to Magic, but he's a lot more like Bird (minus the shooting touch) than Magic, to me. It seems like a crazy comparison because Bird is known as the quintessential unathletic white guy (which isn't as true as people would have you believe) and Lebron is considered the insane, freak athlete (which is absolutely as true as people would have you believe), but both guys really can do everything on the court incredibly well. Magic was never the kind of scorer Lebron is, but Bird definitely was. Bird and Lebron are both very gifted as passers, but neither is on Magic's level there, either. None of these guys are exactly the same, but I really do think Bird is a better point of comparison for Bron than Magic is.
