Durant Profile in Sports Illustrated

In this week’s editions of Sports Illustrated, Chris Ballard profiles Kevin Durant and how the Thunder’s star has evolved into more than a gunner while leading OKC on the brink of the playoffs.

The piece offers some really good insight into Durant, his work ethic and his personality. Really worth 20 minutes of your time. You’ll learn that Durant once, after a terrible game, watched Dennis the Menace and felt better and ready to return to the gym. You’ll also find it interesting that Durant claims his defensive improvement has been aided by the addition of Ron Adams but, “Ron doesn’t teach me schemes or how to guard people. He just gets on me and makes me feel bad.”

The issue hits newsstands Wednesday.
