Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant’s rehab from an MCL sprain is going well, and multiple sporting outlets have reported that he could even return before the end of the regular season. It is the perfect time to learn more about KD with 5 Fun Facts!
- The first thing you notice about KD is his length. He stands 6’9” and has a wingspan of 7’4.” Playing in the small forward position, he can easily get his shot off against any sized player and has the length that allows him to play the passing lanes, block shots and disrupt offensive sets. I love his arms.
- Kevin Durant’s biggest pet peeve is when other people drive his car — he really doesn’t like it when his seat is adjusted.
- Kevin Durant is big into music. His favorite rapper was Notorious B.I.G. But, KD also has a tattoo of Tupac Shakur on his left leg (because he was so impressed with Tupac’s hip-hop mind).
- Kevin Durant has an ongoing battle with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. But seriously, who doesn’t?
- Kevin Durant wears #35 in honor of his youth basketball coach who served as a father figure and mentor for Durant. But his mentor passed way at the age of 35, so Durant continues to wear that number on his jersey in remembrance of the man who meant so much to him.
