NAME: Kevin Durant
HOME: Washington, D.C. (currently residing in Oklahoma City, OK)
BIO: Kevin Durant may have five NBA seasons under his belt, but he plays like a 10-year veteran. One of the most highly recruited high school athletes to play college ball, Durant signed with the University of Texas under head coach Rick Barnes. After a record-setting year with the Longhorns, he declared for the NBA draft and was chosen as the second overall draft pick by the Seattle Supersonics. The team relocated to Oklahoma City and was renamed the Thunder in 2008.
In his Rookie season Kevin was named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year and selected as a member of the NBA All-Rookie First Team. That same season he was also dubbed NBA Rookie of the Month five times and averaged 20.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 2.4 apg in 34.6 minutes per game. Kevin became the third teenager to average more than 20 points per game. He scored a career-high 42 points and grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds on April 16, 2008 at Golden State, setting the record for youngest player in the history of the NBA to score as many points in a game.
In his third season KD led the Thunder to 50 wins earning them the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The 27-game improvement from the previous year was the sixth biggest turnaround in NBA history. At age 21 Kevin also became the youngest player in league history to win the scoring title, averaging 30.1 points per game and beating out LeBron James. He also set the modern record for most games in a row with at least 25 points, breaking Allen Iverson's old record.
Before his fourth season began Kevin signed a 5-year contract extension with the Thunder, and for a second year in a row he led the NBA scoring, averaging 27.7 points per game. He made his second All-Star appearance and led the Thunders to 55 wins and the fourth seed in the Western Conference Finals
In season 5 of his career KD averaged 27.7 points per game in 2011 and was voted an NBA All-Star starter for a second time. In 2012, Durant's game climbed to further heights (even taller than his 6'9" frame), as he claimed All-Star Game MVP, took his team to the NBA finals and won gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics, setting a scoring record in the process.
This past season KD came within .6 points of leading the league in scoring for the fourth time in a row. He had his best all-around year averaging 28 points, 8 rebounds and almost 5 assists while leading the Thunder to the best record in the Western Conference. He also finished second to LeBron James in the MVP voting.
