Instead of bashing people or ESPN commentators on Twitter, Durant instead took a moment to memorialize one of his heroes in the most charming and humorous way possible.

Durant made particular mention of Bryant, who was caught trying to throw up a “tough” pose as the posse showed off their Olympic gold.
“Bean tryna get his stance right is too funny,” Durant said.
He added: “I Miss my dog everyday.”
He’s not alone with that sentiment.
The video shows the 2012 Men’s Olympic basketball team, which was one of the best to ever do it.
The team was one of a kind and truly impressive.
It seemed like no one could slow down the team that year, as they steamrolled all the way to the Gold medal round against Spain and put them away, 107-100.
During the Olympics, Bryant put up 12.1 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists during all eight games.
However, it would be Durant who ended up being the team’s leader, with an average of 19.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists.
Still, Durant knows that the team wouldn’t be the raging success it was if it weren’t for Bryant, who played with his trademark grit and determination and unparalleled skill.
