Kevin Durant's film room: Brooklyn Nets star takes to Instagram watching highlights of NBA greats

NBA players are trying to occupy their time during the league's suspension as we've already seen various different methods from video game streaming to in-house workouts.

Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant appears to be in the film room based off of his most recent Instagram posts, putting up footage of all-time greats like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul.

With no live NBA action, lets take a dive into the past through the lense of KD's Instagram film room.

40-year-old Michael Jordan

A post shared by Kevin Durant (@easymoneysniper) on

The first video Durant posted was of a 40-year-old Jordan on the Washington Wizards in the final season of his illustrious NBA career.

This was an absolute battle between the Wizards and Dallas Mavericks as Jordan and Jerry Stackhouse were trying to keep up with the three-headed monster of Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash and Michael Finley.

Washington fell to Dallas in overtime, but Jordan was ridiculous.

He went for a game-high 30 points shooting an efficient 14-for-26 (53.9%) from the field and was as clutch as you would expect down the stretch. He scored the final six points for the Wizards in overtime, going shot-for-shot with Nash and Finley but came up just short.

Even at 40 years old, Jordan averaged 20.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game and was named an All-Star for the 14th time of his career.

Jordan torches the Raptors in 1998

"All I hear is swish" was the perfect caption for this one.

Jordan barely touched the net on most of these shots in the clip, torching the Toronto Raptors back in 1998.

A Raptors squad with the likes of Tracy McGrady, Chauncy Billups and Marcus Camby did all they could to stop the great MJ and Scottie Pippen, but again, Jordan was just too clutch.

He stuffed the stat sheet scoring 33 points to go with five steals, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks shooting 13-for-28 from the field. Toronto got 23 points from Camby and 26 points from John Wallace, but with Pippen matching Jordan's 33 points, the Raptors were in trouble.

In a tied game with five seconds on the clock, MJ buried a midrange jumper to win the game for the Bulls.

This season, Jordan led the league in scoring for his third year in a row averaging 28.7 points per game, going on to win what would be the final NBA championship of his career.

Playoff Kobe Bryant

Playoff bean was different

A post shared by Kevin Durant (@easymoneysniper) on

This clip was from one of the most dominant playoff games of Bryant's career.

After a grueling first-round matchup that went to five games in a best-of-five series between the Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings the season before in 2000, the Lakers and Kings met again in the playoffs the very next year in 2001.

This time around, the stage was the Western Conference Semifinals and Los Angeles didn't let things get anywhere near as close as they did the year prior.

Up 3-0 in the series, the Lakers had a chance to sweep Sacramento on their home court and Kobe made sure that would happen.

The Black Mamba went off for 48 points in a huge double-double effort that included 16 rebounds. He shot 15-for-29 (51.7%) from the field and 17-for-19 from the free throw line to tally what was then the playoff career-high for the 22-year-old guard.

After getting passed the Kings, Bryant and the Lakers would go on to beat the San Antonio Spurs and Philadelphia 76ers to win their second-consecutive NBA title.

Duel between LeBron and Melo

I still remember this night. My goodness....Ah classic

A post shared by Kevin Durant (@easymoneysniper) on

This was undoubtably the best matchup between rivals and friends LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.

The year was 2010. James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were atop of the East while Anthony and the Denver Nuggets were among the best teams in the West.

LeBron was unstoppable going for a massive triple-double of 43 points, 15 assist and 13 rebounds, but Melo was equally as great going for 40 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

James got a tough and-1 finish to fall, burying the ensuing free throw to tie the game with 20 seconds remaining. Anthony one-upped his opponents' clutch shot, knocking down a game-winning jumper right over LeBron's out stretched hand to give the Nuggets the victory.

"Ah classic" is right, KD.

Chris Paul montage

That first and last move. 🤦🏾‍♂️

A post shared by Kevin Durant (@easymoneysniper) on

The final video Durant posted was a montage of CP3 highlights, honouring the all-time great point guard.

A variety of clips ranging from his Charlotte/Oklahoma City Hornets days to his LA Clippers days, there's no denying how incredible Paul has been throughout his career.

He's a 10-time All-Star, eight-time All-NBA, nine-time All-Defense, six-time steals champ and four-time assists champ and he's still got it. The 34-year-old is averaging 17.7 points and 6.8 assists for the Oklahoma City Thunder this season, leading the league in clutch scoring while his team unexpectedly sits in fifth-place in the Western Conference.
