Q&A: Kevin Durant: Preseason game will be fun

By John Rohde Published: October 9, 2012

You said you wanted to become a more vocal leader. How has that gone so far?

“It's been going well. We have a lot of different personalities on this team. You've got to talk to the guys a certain way and I've known these guys for three or four years. It's just a matter of me speaking up and telling them what I see. These guys listen, so it's perfect having a great group of players who listen to each other and want to get better.”

What changes for you when you're at the 4 position?

“I just feel like I have a different mismatch problem and I make other teams adjust. Usually when we go small, other teams go small to match up with James (Harden), Russell (Westbrook), myself and Serge (Ibaka). Just causing mismatch problems and spacing the floor. If I get the ball in a wide-open position, I've got to shoot. And if I get an iso(lation) situation, I've got to go to work.”
