Kevin Durant KILL KILL KILL. In 2007, I did a SLAM feature on Durant when he had yet to find his way in the NBA. Stumbling, I asked if it bothered him that some folks worried he was too low-key. I got an answer that sounded a lot like this one, especially in the tone. He’s been one of my favorite players ever since. Durant, for all his mildness and good manners, is unmistakably real, even abrasive, when he needs to be. And in the end, that KD can be a jerk makes him that much more endearing.
