Langdon to face NBA’s Thunder (Basketball)
The game won’t count in the standings, but don’t tell that to Anchorage’s Trajan Langdon.
Langdon’s Russian professional team, CSKA Moscow, a European giant, will come to the States to face NBA star Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in an exhibition game on Oct. 14.
CSKA Moscow won the Euroleague championship in 2006 and 2008, while Oklahoma City is one of the budding title contenders in the Western Conference.
Langdon, of East High fame, is a veteran starting shooting guard overseas and was selected to the Euroleague All-Decade Team.
A few years ago, the 6-foot-3 Alaskan bagged 17 points in an exhibition win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
