Nets’ Kevin Durant producing basketball documentary about Prince George’s County
Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant has made some tremendous strides in his recovery. It appears he has also been making bug moves off the court as well.
According to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, Durant has produced a documentary titled “In the Water,” that will feature much of NBA talent that has come out of Prince George’s County in Maryland:

Durant serves as the chairman and co-founder of Thirty Five Ventures and his latest projects have fittingly been centered around telling stories inspired by basketball. He recently dropped a trailer for a documentary on the life of NBA legend Stephon Marbury called “A Kid From Coney Island” that is set to release in early March, a film which he executive produced.
Kevin Durant has now opted to feature his own roots and how it has served as a hot-bed for so many of today’s stars in the NBA. There will certainly be no shortage of material for him to work with with notable names such as Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo, Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz, and Los Angeles Lakers guard Quinn Cook all hailing from Prince George’s County. It is said that the documentary will also focus on legends from the past such as Len Bias and Adrian Dantley.
Kevin Durant has opened up about his struggles growing up before establishing himself as one of the league’s premier players. The film will provide a firsthand perspective of how he and so many others managed to follow the same path to NBA stardom.
