Thaddeus Young was asked about the type of season Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Kevin Durant is having. Young went straight for the letter P.
"Phenomenal," the 76ers power forward said. "Unbelievable. I've been knowing Kevin since we were like in the 10th grade. Just to see like he's elevated his game. He's well on his way to possibly being one of the greats."
As it turns out, Young and his teammates may not get an up-close glimpse of Durant when the Sixers host Oklahoma City on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.
Durant missed Friday night's game against the Celtics in Boston with a sore shoulder. The Thunder did not give a timetable on his return or comment on his status against the Sixers.
