Kevin Durant: Sonics and Kings ‘Mirror Each Other’

by April 12, 2011

It’s been three years since Kevin Durant played his final game in a Seattle Supersonics uniform. And after coming away with the W following what could have been the Thunder’s last trip to Sacramento, KD sees similarities between the current environment in Sacramento and his franchise’s final days’ in Seattle. From SB Nation Bay Area: “‘When you compare, it was very similar,’ said Durant of the atmosphere in Seattle’s final days as an NBA city in contrast to what he saw Monday night in Sacramento. ‘They mirror each other. The last few games (in Seattle) – they were loud.’ Teammate Nick Collison weighed in as well. ‘They have a nice group of young players,’ Collison said of the Kings, who possess Tyreke Evans, the NBA’s reigning Rookie of the Year and DeMarcus Cousins, one of the League’s most skilled young bigs. ‘I think they’re in a good cap situation so they’ve got a bright future. It is kind of similar to what we had.'”
