So your man Kevin Durant sat down for an ESPN.com chat today and talked about the playoffs, LeBron v. Kobe, OKC v. Seattle, his toughest defensive assignments, his off-season improvement, what it feels like to be a Longhorn playing in Oklahoma and of course Twitter.
On his game and what needs improvement….
“I think the best aspect of my game is my scoring, and I need to improve on my defense the most. I’m working hard in the off-season to be a better player next season.”
On who is the one player he would most like to play with….
“I say LeBron. He’s a great teammate on and off the court. I think it would be a lot of fun playing with him.”
On the three players he thinks are the toughest to defend……
“Kobe, LeBron and Carmelo. Those guys can score in every way. They are physically strong and have great basketball IQ.”
On adjusting to OKC……..
“I think the toughest thing is moving everything from Seattle. With Seattle having a team for so long, I think they are more of an NBA city. But the fans in Oklahoma City are great.”
On how it feels to be a Longhorn playing in Oklahoma…..
“It feels good. I think they have to like me because I play for the Thunder.”
And if you didn’t know by now, Durant has a Twitter page under the name kevindurant35. He’s a regular Tweeter and has a rapidly growing number of followers that has nearly reached 8,000 ((although he could be headed well past that figure after plugging it on ESPN.com).
On what he thinks of Twitter and how he got on…..
“That is my Twitter name. One of my friends (got) me involved and I’ve been hooked ever since.”
