    A shot like this is beautiful. We deify pro athletes and are paralyzed by the thoughts of what it's like to play in front of so many people, how much pressure that must mean. But in the end, the best athletes are the ones who operate like seasoned professionals, who look as though heroism is as natural to them as breathing.

    Kevin Durant's one of those.
