off the court

“Born on September 29, 1988 in Suitland, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C., Kevin Wayne Durant is a high-profile professional basketball player. Durant received offers from top Division I colleges, and although prompted by his friend, point guard Tywon Lawson, to join him and play with the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, Durant signed with the University of Texas Longhorns in Austin. Russell Springman, a Longhorn assistant and Maryland native, had been in touch with Durant since his freshman year of high school.After playing college basketball for only one season at the University of Texas, Austin, he was chosen second overall in the first round of the 2007 NBA draft by the Seattle SuperSonics.”Being born in just outside of Washington DC, Durant attended high school in Washington and be prospected by University of TexasWhile in high school the now 7ft small forward played point guard for his high school team.

And instead of use an already famous number like 23 ( Michael Jordan’s) number he decided to make his own legacy by wearing number 35 and the reason he wears this number isn’t only to make his own legacy but to honor his old AAU coach who died at age 35

Kevin Durant has done many things for Oklahoma. when ever the Moore tornado hit in Moore, Oklahoma he donated $1 million dollars to red cross to help the relief. He also donates some of his money to the KAY YOW cancer fund to help research for breast cancer, because his aunt died of breast cancer

To me Kevin Durant is the best player in the NBA right now, that maybe just because he plays on my favorite NBA team, or maybe it’s because he’s my idol. But his stats show you just how good he has been since entering the league in 2007

He has won awards like NBA 2013-2014 MVP, four NBA scoring titles, six-time all-star, Olympic gold medalist, FIBA (federation of international basketball association) world champion, FIBA world champion MVP, and rookie of the year to name a few.“Because of his precocious play, sometimes folks forget that the 6-9 Oklahoma City Thunder small forward is all of 23 and still learning”

Kevin Durant has been turning heads ever since he was in college but whats really interesting is that coming out of college he got two shoe deal contracts one from NIKE for $60 million and one from Adidas for $70 million. naturally you would chose the one with more money but Kevin signed with NIKE because he had wore NIKE shoes all his life
