Kevin Durant. Kevin Wayne Durant (born September 29, 1988), a professional basketball player, currently plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association (NBA). At 6 feet 9 inches, Durant can play small forward, shooting guard or power forward. As a freshman at the University of Texas, Kevin was named the consensus 2007 National College Player of the Year and the 2006–2007 Big 12 Player of the Year, among other awards. After his freshman season, Durant opted to enter the NBA Draft and was selected second overall by the Seattle SuperSonics, now, the Oklahoma City Thunder. There he went on to win the 2008 NBA Rookie of the Year Award. In the 2009-10 season, Durant led the NBA in scoring and became the youngest player ever to win the NBA scoring title. He would later be named to the 2010 All NBA First Team.
Entering the 2009-2010 season, the Thunder were not expected to compete for a playoff berth; but, led by Durant, they finished the regular season with 50 wins and earned the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs. The 27-game improvement from the previous year was the sixth biggest turnaround in NBA history.
In 2007, after turning down a $70 million offer from Adidas, Durant signed a $60 million endorsement contract with Nike, "because I (he) had always worn Nike growing up." Then, in 2010, he signed a contract extension with the Thunder that will reportedly pay him $85 million over five years. With many experts ordaining him the best player in the NBA, it looks like Durant's financial future is set.¹
