Kevin Durant already has plans after basketball

Published Add your comment

Kevin Durant is pretty good at basketball, we can be sure about that. Incase there were any previous doubts about his abilities, Durant has reinforced his talent with an incredible season of scoring so far. But where else does he excel? Well, he hopes making music could eventually fall into that category.

The Oklahoma City Thunder tops the NBA charts with the best points-per-game total this season and, while he still has plenty of gas left in the tank at the top-level, is starting to think of a life beyond basketball.

While some players go down media or business route, think the likes of Magic Johnson and Shaquille O’Neal, others prefer to have a crack at a career they may have chased had they not gone into pro sport.

Durant is of the latter persuasion, and has hopes of working in the music industry to manage and improve artists, with his passion in the production rather than performing side of the industry.

“I have a recording studio, and I’m really interested in how music is made,” Durant told Vanity Fair.

“[Eventually], when I’m done playing, I can see getting involved with developing artists and helping them elevate themselves to a higher level.”
