Kevin Durant and the Audacity of Hope

by March 30, 2009

KD says he’s happy in OKC and excited about the future: “There were a lot of unknowns for Kevin Durant concerning what basketball and life would be like in Oklahoma. But in a short time, the budding superstar has come to a conclusion. ‘I love it,’ said Durant in a telephone interview. ‘The weather is unpredictable. You don’t know when it’s going to snow or rain. But the people here are nice. Nice people. I didn’t know anything about it other than playing here in college [at the University of Texas]. Flat land. ‘But after coming here and seeing the city, I love Oklahoma. The fans have been with me every night. What more can you ask for?'”
