If you haven’t seen the Kevin Durant video yet, this is going to be your chance.
It’s been the talk of the sports world for the last couple of days and with good reason.
I should have written about it yesterday, but I instead opted to chronicle the life and times of the Orioles’ closer, “Load ‘Em Tommy Hunter”.
Today, I’m writing about Kevin Durant.
There won’t be a better ten minutes in sports in 2014 than THIS RIGHT HERE.
Tony Durant, Kevin’s big brother, played at Towson University for a couple of seasons after transferring from a Kansas community college. I made the trip to Philadelphia with the Tigers in one of those campaigns as Pat Kennedy’s team took on Villanova and had the chance to chat with Durant on the trip up I-95.
I remember very vividly Tony Durant saying: “My little brother is gonna be one helluva player in the NBA.”
Turns out, Tony was wrong.
Kevin Durant isn’t “one helluva player”. He’s a future NBA Hall of Famer.
Sports needs more KD’s. It needs more players willing to give credit to their teammates when something is accomplished.
I’ll show this clip to my Calvert Hall golfers and give them a chance to see with their own eyes and hear with their own ears what it’s like to truly be a champion.
Just a remarkable, remarkable day for Kevin Durant.
