Kevin Durant is one of the best players to ever step foot on the basketball court. No doubt he has been an inspiration for many players, Jayson Tatum is among that list for sure.
Kevin Durant’s phenomenal form was the primary reason that team USA was able to win a gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics. In fact, KD became the highest scorer for the USA in the history of the Olympics.
In the final match against France, Durant and Jayson Tatum put on a scoring clinic and helped the team win the gold medal. Although Tatum has also made a name for himself now, a few years ago he was one of the many admirers of Durant’s game.

Well, despite being “old as hell” (Durant’s words, lol), he is still one of the best players in the league. He proved his worth this season after making a comeback from a serious injury and is still playing at an elite level.
Maybe in the upcoming season, he can lead the Brooklyn Nets to an NBA Championship. Regardless of his talents, it won’t be an easy job by any means.
Can Kevin Durant add another championship to his resume? Or are his championship winning days over? Well, we will find that out when the new season kicks off.
