“Who would have imagined I’d be in the same sentence as MJ?” Durant asked.
But busting into Jordan-level historical debates hasn’t unleashed within Durant any hunger to win them — at least not yet. “He’s not chasing a ghost,” [Wayne Pratt, KD’s father] says. “He’s not trying to be MJ, or pass MJ.”
“I mean, I’m crazy about winning, don’t get me wrong,” Durant tells ESPN.com. “I’m just not obsessed with winning championships. It’s not the only reason I play. I play for my individual growth.”
