   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 1
2010-06-27

After the Pondexter pick, the camera immediately cuts to Kevin Durant, who tried to pretend it wasn't on him and showed no emotion at Pondexter's selection. Kevin clearly has been able to remember and compute the information that the ESPN director has forgotten; this pick is being traded by the Thunder to the Hornets. But even with this visual reminder, the director still doesn't remember the trade, and sends Heather Cox down there to interview Kevin. Heather seems to remember - rather than asking Durant anything about Pondexter, she speaks in more general terms about the Thunder's movements, and ends on a Cole Aldrich question. Cox adds much needed stability to an occasionally wild production team. It's just unfortunate that such a lady has such a surname.

Kevin Durant
SF/PF, 6’9, 240lbs, 28 years old, 10 years of experience

Not sure what I can say that has not already been said and that is not already known. Gave it a go here.

Player Plan: Has declined a $27,734,405 player option for 2017/18 he had little rea-son to exercise, and sounds committed to re-signing. Re-signing him costs what it costs. It will be a lot, especially in conjunction with the below and the more punitive tax penalties. But this is what that amount is for. Any discounts would be welcome, but Durant is not the one to lose or scrimp on.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 2nd November 2017
2017-11-02

While the Warriors’ defence may be poor, the offence has been better than ever. Their 118.6 offensive efficiency rating not only leads the league, but annihilates it – the gap between them and the second place Orlando Magic (109.9) is about the same as the gap from the Magic to the 22nd placed Phoenix Suns (101.1). Durant, of course, is a huge part of this, with averages of 25.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.4 blocks per game thus far. Without Kawhi tonight once again, Green and Kyle Anderson will have to take turns trying to check Durant, and neither has the speed to do so.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
