Kevin Durant approves of hilarious video of kids celebrating, showing poor sportsmanship

A video of third graders dominating on the hardwood, yet showing very poor sportsmanship, has gone viral among basketball fans this week.

Among those who've watched the highlights has been Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant. "KD" clearly approves of the actions of the little hoopers, tweeting, "as a kid, I remember we did what we saw the pros do... good s*** lil homies."

According to the Courtside Films Twitter account, the two ballers who took over at the T3TV Snowball Classic are Kason Angert and Zion Lancaster. Perhaps men's college basketball fans can look out for their names in the recruiting class in the early 2030s.

Durant was on his way to another huge season, before suffering a MCL sprain in early January. The Nets have gone 0-4 since the 12-time All-Star went down, including losses to the rival-Boston Celtics, the lowly San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns and Oklahoma City Thunder -- who are both below .500.

Durant is expected to return eventually this season, but his exact timetable is uncertain. His absence has hurt immensely, as Brooklyn doesn't have much depth of elite talent behind Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons, the latter of whom has been struggling on offense.

Even at 34, Durant is still one of the best players in the league, as evidenced by his league-leading 93.4% free throw percentage and 29.7 points per game, which ranks seventh in the NBA. The Nets enter the weekend in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings at 27-17.
