BIOGRAPHY

Born on September 29, 1988 in Washington, DC, Kevin Durant currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets.

He is listed at 6' 10" and weighs 240 lbs. A man with numerous nicknames, including The Slim Reaper, Durant’s play on the court is only rivaled by his love for Twitter. A social media maven, KD was once busted for operating several burner accounts, which made the man even more endearing to the masses.

Durant went to high school at National Christian Academy (MD). A highly sought after high scool recruit, Durant then committed to play for Rick Barnes and the Texas Longhorns. Only playing one season in the collegiate ranks, Durant’s freshman campaign is considered one of the best one-and-done seasons in the history of the sport.

Despite his amazing college career, Greg Oden was eyed as the No. 1 overall selection in the 2007 NBA Draft, making room for the Oklahoma City Thunder to pluck Kevin Durant with the second overall pick.

Amassing numerous individual awards, and helping to lead the Golden State Warriors to a title, KD is easily one of the best players of his generation.

During his NBA career, Durant also played 9 seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder and 3 seasons with the Golden State Warriors before joining the Brooklyn Nets.
