Lebron James and Kevin Durant are two of the NBA’s most exciting people to watch.  Both Lebron and Kevin came into the 2011-2012 with goals of winning an NBA title .

Lebron king James has the ability of averaging a triple double with his superb court vision, rebounding technique and scoring ability. While Kevin durantulla Durant  is coming off another scoring title from last year season, and already has had a 50 point game this season. He  looks to be more than just a scoring champ this year.

The fan section is referred to as the “sixth man”, because they are considered the sixth “player” of their basketball team. High school and college student sections are numerous across the United States, and many share the same characteristics, such as similar chants and similar behaviors.”
