Last year, Durant averaged nearly 27 points for the Nets, along with 7.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists. He put up a number of inspiring performances throughout but failed to carry his team over the line. This time, however, his team is back to full fitness and gunning to capture the elusive NBA Championship. With all the hype surrounding Brooklyn, everyone wants a piece of their players.
