Last Season KD made the most of his time on the floor with averages of 25.4 points and 6.6 rebounds, but his bum wheel has caused him to struggle to find any kind of rhythm. He’s played in just 27 of the team’s 66 games and hasn’t been seen in uniform since Feb. 19th. This MVP sat down with Nike to talk about what he fears most, his own style, when he decides to retire from balling and much more. Check what he has to say below and get a furth insight into Durant’s views on things here.
“My biggest fear is that I might be taking it all for granted. Being able to do something I love every single day is a blessing. We play so many games, we have so many practices — it flies by. By the time it’s all said and done, I worry that I might not have really enjoyed every single day as a pro.
I don’t want to say it’s a competition, but [professional basketball players] always want to look good. Guys aren’t comparing all the time, but I think everybody wants his own lane to stay in. So I just try to do my own thing and not worry about what other players have on. I just want to enjoy what I have on and feel good in it. And I’ve been doing that lately.
If I don’t like it, I won’t wear it — no matter what design it is or who made it. I’m real simple with it. If it has a nice fit, I’ll wear it.
I want to be a Hall of Famer, have multiple championships and, most of all, I just want to leave my mark on the city. I want to inspire the youth and be remembered as one of those guys who impacted lives, on and off the court”
