Durant says players won't back down

Washington:

Kevin Durant made his points on and off the court on Saturday, throwing down several thunderous alley-oops during a charity pickup game and saying afterward that the players will not give in to the owner's demands in the ongoing NBA labor negotiations.

With the lockout delaying the start of the season, Durant, John Wall and other NBA players headlined the "Clash of the Superstars" at Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C.

Several hundred spectators watched the glorified scrimmage, one of numerous games players have organized across the country to reach out to fans and keep their skills sharp while they wait for the union and the league to reach a new collective bargaining agreement.

Training camps are scheduled to open on October 3 and the regular season on November 1.
