Kevin Durant joins Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles | The Players' Tribune

  • Published: 04 April 2019
  • This week’s Knuckleheads with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles welcomes on MVP, two-time NBA champ, and future Hall of Famer Kevin Durant. KD looks back on his meteoric rise, and pinpoints the moment when he figured out he could play in the NBA. He also talks about how special his time at Texas was, and reveals where he originally wanted to go to school. The trio moves on to a review of the 2007 draft, and how KD believed the Trail Blazers would have been a perfect fit for his game. They then dive into KD’s time in Oklahoma City, specifically the dynamic between him, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden — before they all became MVPs. Kevin remembers how intense their practices were, how proud he was when they won their MVP awards, and what could have been had the three of them not been broken up. The discussion then switches to the Warriors — they discuss the possibility of a three-peat, how Kevin’s shot has improved from playing with Steph and Klay, and why he didn’t get that emotional after winning his first championship. One of the NBA’s best players has a lot to say. You will not want to miss Kevin Durant.

            he would have cried if he won it on wasnt the same..when Jordan won it..he cried and it was a diff experience because of the PRICE he paid to get there..jordan had to go.through the GAMBET and he had to beat the BEST to get the top..smh..these niggas just want chips as trophys..they domt understand what being a TRUE champion really means beating all opponenys to be the overall best..when u link up with ur opponents then u arent truly the Best..its just diff levels..superstars wanted to beat each other and not play together back in the day

                                    Love this interview. Gives some good insight on KD as person, silent superstar and caring as hell. Helped me sift though what is said versus ‘what he just said’.

                                      Hakeem was that dude man!!! He could do everything. If Hakeem the dream was playing today he would literally be Durant. Hakeem could shoot, dribble, pass, and athletic. On another note. I wish penny never got hurt. Penny was too special.
