Cole Aldrich to start at center for Thunder

By John Rohde Published: October 9, 2012

Three-time scoring champion Kevin Durant, who is entering his sixth season in the league, hasn't changed his approach for several seasons now.

“I'm just trying to focus on one day at a time,” Durant said. “That (winning the title) is so far down the line. It's easy for guys outside the circle looking in to think that far down the line. But us, we're just taking it one day at a time. Of course we want to get there. Of course that's every team's goal, especially ours. But we know it's going to take a process. We can't get bored with it. We've just got to take it a day at a time, see where we're at.”
