Kevin Durant?s early life?
Kevin Durant was born on September 29, 1988, in Washington D.C. The forward spent most of his early life in Prince George's County, Maryland. From a young age, Durant was a very talented basketball star. After graduating from Montrose Christian School, he committed to the University of Texas in Austin in 2006 despite offers from multiple popular programs. After one year of college basketball, KD declared for the NBA draft in 2007. According to reports, he later earned a bachelor's in education with a minor in social work.
Kevin Durant?s family and personal life
Kevin Durant?s parents are Wanda Durant and Wayne Pratt. He has three siblings, Brianna, Tony, and Rayvonne. Durant's father abandoned the family when he was an infant and his parents eventually divorced later. The two-time Finals MVP's grandmother helped Wanda in raising him. When KD was 13, Pratt re-entered his life and traveled with him around the country for basketball tournaments.
Durant was once engaged to WNBA star Monica Wright. They started dating in 2013 and were engaged a few months later. However, the engagement was called off, and they reportedly broke up in 2014. He once talked about the reason behind the failed relationship.
After this, it was rumored KD dated Cassandra Anderson who is a real estate broker. She was spotted attending his games from the spouses' area during his time with the Warriors. There were multiple social media posts of the two together as well. However, the posts were later deleted. It is unclear whether Durant and Cassandra broke up or whether they are trying to keep it private.
Kevin Durant?s basketball career
Kevin Durant was one of the best college basketball stars in the country while playing for the University of Texas. He led the Longhorns to a 25?10 record and clinch 4th seed in the NCAA Tournament. Despite a great game from Durant, the team was eliminated in the second round. For his impressive performances, KD won the National Player of the Year award along with other prestigious accolades. After one year with Texas, he declared for the NBA draft in 2007.
Even though there were some reservations about his lanky build, Durant was expected to be a lottery pick. The Seattle SuperSonics selected KD as the 2nd pick of the draft. However, many still thought that the 6'10" youngster would struggle to play against the well-built stars in the NBA. But that was far from the reality. Durant hit the ground running and won the Rookie of the Year award averaging 20 points per game.
After his rookie year, the franchise moved to Oklahoma, rebranding as the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Slim Reaper continued his ascension and dominated his opponents. The Thunder were one of the best young teams with KD, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden in the lineup. Durant led the team to the 2012 NBA Finals but lost the title to LeBron James' Miami Heat.
KD was arguably in his prime during the 2013-14 season and won the NBA MVP award averaging 32 points. However, team success was still hard to come by as the Thunder were knocked out in the Conference Finals. After two more disappointing seasons in Oklahoma, Durant joined the Golden State Warriors. He received major criticism for joining the team that beat the Thunder in the Conference Finals the previous year and also for forming a super team.
Durant instantly helped the Warriors with his skill set and experience. The Dubs won two straight titles and KD won the Finals MVP award on both occasions. The Warriors' hunt for a third straight ring in 2019 came up short in the Finals against the Toronto Raptors as KD struggled with injury throughout the playoffs. After some internal issues within the team, Durant left the Warriors and joined the Brooklyn Nets.
This move was again criticized heavily as Kyrie Irving also joined the Nets the same year. However, because of COVID protocol, Irving missed a lot of games. Then in 2021, Durant's former teammate James Harden also joined the team. But the trio barely played together due to various reasons and Harden left after one year. In the 2022-23 season, the Nets started the season poorly but then went on a great run and looked unstoppable. But things changed after Irving requested a trade and moved to the Dallas Mavericks. Durant later joined the Phoenix Suns in a blockbuster move to play alongside Devin Booker and Chris Paul.
