We all know how devastating Kevin de Bruyne could be with the ball in his feet. His eye for the final ball and set-pieces with pinpoint accuracy has made the 25-year-old being counted among the best playmakers of the World. And in an interview with the Duse Magazine, he took his creativity levels to the next level with an unbelievable finish.

As you can see in the video filmed in a basketball court, the Belgium and Manchester City creator-in-chief casually juggled the ball before swishing it from behind the halfway line. Not only the people around him but De Bruyne himself went into a frenzy as he pulled off an unbelievable finish. In his interview with the sports and lifestyle-based journal, the former Chelsea man confessed his love for basketball.
"Yeah, i like to watch it, i watch it alot," stated the Belgian.
"Not live obviously because it's always during the night but like when we go to the hotel and there's been a good game, i will watch it again."
When asked which NBA player he could be for a week, De Bruyne was quick to pick out NBA legend LeBron James.
" If I would say if I wanted to be would be LeBron James. Just the way that he is. He is been the best since he came at a league."
" Yeah you can see what he does is not only the points but the way he leads the team, he le leads everything in the team – defensive, offensive, the way he needs to conduct himself to the media, to the outside world, what he does for the people around. So, i think in one way or another, his mindset on the basketball field is may be a little bit the way i think."
De Bruyne is currently nursing a calf problem he picked during the international duty with Belgium and is a doubt for City's trip to the Emirates on Sunday. However, he still has ample time on his side to recover for the crunch tie and looking at the miraculous finish he produced in the video, it shouldn't come as a surprise if the Belgian fancy a goal from beyond the half-line against the Gunners this Sunday.
