The NBA media sometimes likes to portray Kevin Durant as the bad guy, but it’s clear he comes close to that. Durant had an incredibly healthy interaction with his young fans when he played against the Brooklyn He Nets Charlotte Hornets.
The girl had a sign that read, “KD is my goat pick. Sorry MJ I’m only 12.” When Durant saw the sign, it brought a smile to his face when he saw the girl in recognition, and the moment the girl saw Durant acknowledge her, she had a big smile on her face. and tried to sign up.
It is in moments like this that the true nature of a player is revealed. How you interact with your fans and how you make them feel when you acknowledge them. Just because Kevin Durant likes to troll and fight people on Twitter, it’s not fair to paint him as a particular typecast.
For Durant, what made the moment even sweeter was the fact that the Brooklyn Nets beat Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets. The Nets are now on an 11-game winning streak and are playing the best basketball in the NBA, just two games behind the #1 seed Boston Celtics. Next up for the Nets is the San Antonio Spurs, another game they have in their favor to win.
