While KD is considered to be a very intense player, there is a side to him that not many knows. He is a big fan of Drake and never fails to mention him when he is spoken to about music. When asked about which one is his favorite song, at first, Durant had a hard time choosing. He knew that it would be one of Drake’s only. But after careful consideration, he picked ‘Crew Love’ by Drake.

He even justified why he picked this song and said, “Crew Love by Drake because obviously, you’re going to have a crew out there while you’re hooping. It’s a slower tempo song, and that’s the kind of and that’s the kind of pace I like to play it. So, it matches with, you know, my approach to the game.”

The love between Kevin Durant and Drake is mutual

Drake is a big fan of basketball, and the Toronto rapper, of course, supports the Toronto Raptors. However, that does not mean he doesn’t gel up with players on the other teams. He has been seen hanging out with LeBron James, even Stephen Curry, and Ayesha Curry. Apart from being present at several All-Star games, he was also named the global ambassador for the Raptors.

Talking about his connection with KD, their bond began when he mentioned the Brooklyn Nets superstar in a song of his.

He sat down with Genius to talk about the impact he has had on the music industry with so many rappers using his name, including Drake.
