Basketball season is over, but Kevin Durant is by no means finished being a superstar.

For the last two days, I have covered the Kevin Durant basketball camp at Heritage Hall in Oklahoma City.

I have to say, I admire Durant’s ability to stay positive after a tough loss to Dallas and while staring in the face of an NBA lockout.

These kids seemed to have had a memorable experience during their sessions.  The “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” after every basket Durant made alone told the excitement of these young ballers.

I have nothing else to say, except that Kevin Durant is just an all around good dude.  I’m proud as an Oklahoman to say that Kevin Durant represents my city.
