Kevin Durant`s greatness shows as Thunder fight off Spurs to even West finals

4 years ago

Remember the young Kevin Durant in 2011? The backpack is gone. No one seems to know where it went or why; only that Kevin Durant has stopped wearing it. A year ago, Durant brought his book bag to every news conference during the Oklahoma City Thunder`s playoff run. Both straps pulled tight around his shoulders, his long, lanky frame folded into the chair, Durant hunched over the microphone and answered questions as if he were a third-grader drilling flash cards with his language arts teacher.
Hes matured over an year, experiencing playoffs, new teammates, and all-stardom. The Thunder are at its prime and its lead by Kevin Durant and his other All-Star teammate Russell Westbrook.
Everyone wanted to know what Durant carried in the backpack. Charles Barkley teased him about it. Nike started stocking its shelves with similar bags. It made for a cute story, and maybe that`s why Durant stopped wearing it.
This year, in these playoffs, Kevin Durant doesn`t do cute.
