The #KD2DC translator

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant provides no shortage of quotes which seem innocuous on the surface, but they have much deeper meaning once you read between the lines. With the NBA season right around the corner, it's time to start putting away the narratives of the summer and start to focus on the actual basketball season at hand. That's why Kevin Durant gave an in-depth interview to USA Today's Sam Amick about the rumors surrounding his free agency in 2016. As he's always done, Kevin Durant professes his love for the Thunder and Oklahoma City, but when it comes to talking about...

Translating Kevin Durant's recent comments about the summer of 2016

Things have been going well for Kevin Durant this summer. He appears to be fully healed of the foot problems that dogged him last season and dealt with less of the #KD2DC speculation that dogged him last summer. It would be hard for Durant to ask for more after what's transpired over the past 12 months. For a time, it looked like Durant was going to make it through the summer without much fanfare, but unfortunately, he had to deal with Team USA minicamp two weeks ago. Poor guy. Wearing red, white and blue all day with a horde of reporters watching every move you make? Kevin Durant had no...

Kevin Durant is the favorite player of NBA rookies

KD's milkshake brings all the boys to the yard. Even though Kevin Durant had a truncated season in 2014-15, he's still the apple of the 2015 NBA rookie class' eye. From Erik Horne at The Oklahoman: When asked "Who is your favorite player in the league?," 21.2 percent of the rookies polled picked Durant in this year's NBA Rookie Survey. Durant, selected as the rookies' favorite player for the second year in a row, beat out Kobe Bryant (18.2 percent) and LeBron James (15.2 percent). Thunder guard Russell Westbrook picked up some votes, but not enough to land in the Top 6 with Durant, Bryant,...

Did Kevin Durant Put More on The Operating Table Than Just His NBA Career?

KD's use of Medtronic Infuse Bone-Graft could be controversial. The anticipated return of 2014 MVP Kevin Durant from surgery performed on his left foot in late March has Thunder chat rooms and discussion forums buzzing. Video footage of Durant participating in drills at Team USA's basketball mini-camp this week and comments from the 6-time NBA All-Star show he should be ready to start the 2015-16 season at almost 100 percent. According to KD's doctor's, the basic evidence show that the fifth metatarsal in his left foot has "healed" enough to clear him to play. Although another break is...

Kevin Durant on his foot before 3rd surgery: "It had a crack in it."

Kevin Durant revealed some additional details on his surgically repaired right foot that went under the knife for a 3rd time back on March 31st, 2015. Before that most recent procedure, Durant's 5th metatarsal was in pretty bad shape. It had a crack in it. That's pretty normal when it comes to sidewalks and driveways. It'll make your skin crawl when it applies to someone's foot. Kevin Ding at Bleacher Report elaborated and got Durant to further explain: Durant used a controversial bone-graft material that is not FDA approved for use in the foot to promote greater bone growth this time....

Kevin Durant feeds off the energy at Team USA basketball minicamp

Kevin Durant describes his experience at the 2016 Team USA basketball minicamp as "basketball heaven" thanks to the ability to feed off of players like Chris Paul, LaMarcus Aldridge, Steph Curry and others. Although OKC Thunder fans might be nervous about risking further injury as he gets back to form following surgery on his Jones fracture, Durant feels as though he needs to play against elite NBA talent to gauge how far along he is in rehabilitation.

Kevin Durant getting back into shape by rage-blocking kids

Kevin Durant is playfully picking on the kids at his summer basketball camp again. Without any context to these videos it would really remind one of the infamous Peyton Manning SNL short where he's pegging kids with footballs. Alas, KD's antics are all in good fun, and how cool will it be for those kids to be able to one day brag about how they had their shot blocked by Kevin Durant? @royceyoung Kevin Durants snapchat is hilarious. He's picking on kids at his camp this morning lol pic.twitter.com/MjOMALkCXo — Kyle Boone (@k_boonie) August 6, 2015

Harris and Oladipo figure to be longshots to earn an Olympic nod, but training alongside the likes of Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Chris Paul--and under the direction of coach Mike...
