Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood High School Years College Years at the University of Texas Kevin’s NBA Career Kevin Durant’s Personal Life Duran’ts Impact on Basketball and Beyond Kevin Durant’s Legacy and Future An excerpt from the book: Basketball eras aren’t divided by time; they are remembered by rivalries and names: Russell versus Chamberlain, Magic versus Bird, Michael Jordan vs. The Pistons, and even the Lakers internal rivalry of Kobe vs. Shaq. The NBA is a league driven by its stars and more often, it takes more than one hard court idol to lead it. The current driver of the league is Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, who in his ten years in the league, has been NBA champion twice and named the NBA’s Regular Season MVP four times in the last six years. James asserted his dominance as a basketball player right from the moment he stepped onto the NBA’s hardwood, although it was only in 2010 when he moved to the Miami Heat that he officially took the crown as the NBA’s King. But just as King James ascended to his throne, a second superstar emerged to challenge him, and just like in the old days of the NBA, a new rivalry was born. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has entered the picture and cast himself as the lone and legitimate challenger to King James’ crown. Although Durant had been in the league since 2007, their battles began when James moved to South Beach and bested Kevin Durant to win his second MVP award in 2010. After the Chicago Bulls’ superstar point guard Derrick Rose snapped LeBron James’ back to back MVP victories in 2011, Durant finished second place to James once again for the next two seasons. Tired of always being the bridesmaid to James, Durant exploded like an atom bomb in 2014 and finally dethroned King James as MVP after four attempts. The 2014 MVP voting wasn’t even close as Durant collared 119 out of a possible 125 first place votes and bested James 1232-891 in the final tally to bag his first ever NBA MVP award.
