Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant is a real basketball junkie, and he proved it with some interesting quotes during a recent interview with The Athletic.

Durant makes everyone who comes over to his house watch Michael Jordan highlights, no matter who it is. 

“Everybody that comes to my house, whether it’s friends or family, I make them watch Jordan highlights. This is equivalent to [Albert] Einstein … fucking [Ludwig van] Beethoven … or [Barack] Obama,” he said. “This is the greatest talent and athletes and minds of the world. Just because they play sports, people think one way. But they’re masters, they’re geniuses. I just started realizing that a few years ago: Watching those guys can really spark my creativity.”

 Durant continued on: 

Durant also talked about the beef between he and Draymond. 

“People I lean on told me to stay center field with my thoughts and my feelings. I received so many people reaching out,” Durant said. 

“My former coaches saying to stay centered, stay measured, stay pushing forward and keeping my foot on the gas. At that time, we were losing games, and people were banged up, so it’s easy to go the other way when you’re searching for answers. It was about staying positive and going to work.”

Most Durant stories these days make me kind of dislike him, but the Jordan Highlights is just awesome. 

KD with the win.
