ESPN cancels Kevin Durant’s show

Kevin Durant, Nets, The Boardroom

Brooklyn Nets superstar small forward Kevin Durant’s show, “The Boardroom,” has been canceled by ESPN, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.

The show was on ESPN+, a $4.99-per-month subscription-based service. It featured Durant, former NBA guard Jay Williams and KD’s manager Rich Kleiman.

“The Boardroom” aimed to “bring fans behind the scenes of the modern boardroom, showcasing the evolution of sports business through the minds of athletes, sports executives and tech moguls alike.”

Unfortunately, the show didn’t draw too many viewers.

“The Boardroom is not being renewed following two seasons on ESPN+,” ESPN said in a statement to The Post. “Thirty Five Ventures are great partners and we look forward to continuing to discuss any future projects.”

Durant, who signed a four-year deal with the Nets last summer, hasn’t played at all in 2019-20 and will not suit up until next season. The two-time Finals MVP is still recovering from the Achilles tear he suffered in Game 5 of the 2019 Finals.

When KD makes his Nets debut in 2020-21, Brooklyn should be title contenders. Durant and Nets All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving are two of the best players in the NBA and eager to lead the franchise to a championship.

A 10-time All-Star and former MVP, Kevin Durant has career averages of 27.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 849 games with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors. He is one of the best scorers of all time, and Nets fans can’t wait to see KD on the floor at the Barclays Center.
