Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant Shirsey
Kevin Wayne Durant (born September 29, 1988) is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Durant has won an NBA Most Valuable Player Award, four NBA scoring titles, the NBA Rookie of the Year Award, and an Olympic gold medal. He has also been selected to six All-NBA teams and seven All-Star teams.
Durant was a heavily recruited high school prospect. He attended the University of Texas for one season of college basketball, where he won numerous year-end awards and became the first ever freshman to be named Naismith College Player of the Year. In the 2007 NBA draft, he was selected second overall by the Seattle SuperSonics. After his rookie season, the team relocated to Oklahoma City and became the Thunder. Durant helped lead Oklahoma City to the 2012 NBA Finals, losing to the Miami Heat in five games. In 2012, he starred in his first feature film, Thunderstruck.
Durant owns several properties in Oklahoma City, and in 2013 put his primary residence in the affluent Club Villa neighborhood up for sale for $1.95 million. That same year, he opened a restaurant, KD’s Southern Cuisine, in the Bricktown neighborhood of Oklahoma City. He was engaged to Monica Wright, a WNBA player. In his spare time, he describes himself as a “high school kid” and enjoys playing video games. He is a Christian and goes to chapel before every game; he has religious tattoos on his stomach, wrist, and back.
Durant was formerly represented by agents Aaron Goodwin and Rob Pelinka. He left Pelinka in 2013, and signed with the Roc Nation group, headed by Jay-Z. Durant has endorsement deals with Nike, Sprint, Gatorade, Panini, General Electric, and 2K Sports. In 2013, he earned $35 million, making him the fourth-highest-earning basketball player that year. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Durant claimed that despite his high earnings potential, “global marketing and all that stuff” does not interest him. In 2012, he tried his hand at acting, appearing in the children’s film Thunderstruck.
Throughout his career, Durant has participated in philanthropic causes. In 2013, he pledged $1 million to the American Red Cross for the victims of the 2013 Moore tornado. His generosity inspired the Thunder and Nike to match his donation. He is also a spokesperson for the Washington, D.C. branch of P’Tones Records, a nationwide non-profit after-school music program.
Durant is a well liked player, and in 2012, a poll revealed he was viewed more favorably by fans than Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. In 2013, Foot Locker released a series of commercials calling Durant the “nicest guy in the NBA”. In Oklahoma City, he has become a beloved figure, known for his “nice escapades” toward the Thunder’s staff. In 2014, Durant partnered with KIND snacks and launched StrongAndKind.com to show “being kind is not a sign of weakness.” One of the most popular players in the league, his jersey regularly ranks as one of the NBA’s best-selling and he is consistently one of the top All-Star vote-getters.
For the NFL’s Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos on February 7, 2016, Durant was one of the credentialed photographers for the game as he is Deputy Publisher of The Players’ Tribune. (Wikipedia)
