Coach K loves KD
Kevin Durant might be wearing another jersey soon.
One with USA across the front.
According to reports, the Thunder star has been impressive at USA Basketball’s three-day mini camp. The event features 20 of the NBA’s best young stars, and all of them are trying to earn a spot on the senior national team.
Everyone around here knows not only how good Durant is but also how much better he’s become. His game has expanded beyond what it was even a year ago. The lanky swingman is more defensive-minded and more likely to snag a board or block a shot. Now, I’m not saying he’s going to be confused with Bruce Bowen or any other lock-down defender any time soon.
Or will he?
Check out what national team coach Mike Krzyzewski had to say: “He’s that versatility guy, and the other thing is he’s a shooter, and with the way we were playing defense for most of the Olympics, with his length, he could be a heck of a defender.”
A heck of a defender. Durant. Go figure.
Coach K had even more to say about KD’s chances of making the national team: “So he’s really at the head of the list for me.”
