On July 17, 2007, NBA superstar Kevin Durant set the 2007 Summer League on fire, exactly 16 years ago. The Phoenix Suns forward scored 29 points for Utah at the Salt Lake Community College. It was an outstanding effort and marked the beginning of something great in the years to come.

A tweet was posted on Monday to commemorate 16 years of the great match and Kevin Durant, the man himself replied to the tweet. In that game, Seattle rookie Durant put on a show for the sellout crowd at the Lifetime Activities Center, scoring 7-21 from the floor and 14-15 from the foul line.

The tweet featured highlights of the small forward’s heroics at that game against Seattle. Replying to that tweet, the 34-year-old replied, “I remember watching a fan knock a police officer out as soon as I walked off the bus to go into the gym, time flies”  Now it is unknown what exactly might have happened 16 years ago, as the player hasn’t made any comment about the incident further.
