Reliving LeBron & Durant's 1st showdown
By Patrick Dorsey
With the NBA Finals upon us, much is being made of LeBron James vs. Kevin Durant -- and rightly so, as the pair went 1-2 in MVP voting before leading their respective teams to conference titles.
But while this is the first major on-court battle between the two, it's not the first time James and Durant have squared off in a much-hyped sporting event. That came last November, when a series of flag football games and Tweets led to what ESPN's own Brian Windhorst dubbed "the super bowl of flag football."
A full football crew. Pro-like unis. More than 70,000 Ustream viewers. One close showdown.
