Kevin Durant is having quite a season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Olympic gold medal winners is in with a good shot indeed of finishing it off with an MVP award.
The 25-year-old is averaging 31 points-per-game, superior to the likes of Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James, and far greater than any other player in the NBA over the course of the campaign.
Given his exceptional performances of late, Durant has also seen his bank balance provided with a pleasant little increase as the latest figures released show that sales of his signature Nike shoes have risen by 400 percent. Not bad.
However, Durant is not content with relaxing and counting his wedge when he’s not tearing things up on the court, but is often seen given something back to the basketball community.
The latest such example came on Thursday as Durant headed down to pass on his supreme knowledge to those hoping to improve themselves at the Orlando Hoops Lab. As far as coaches go Durant is not a bad one, and OHoops COO Gerrod Trytten waxed lyrical about his latest recruit.
He tweeted: “Welcomed Kevin Durant, aka KD aka the best basketball player in the world, to #theLab - #OHoops Does it BIG!”
