Publisher's Summary

Golden State Warriors insider and best-selling author Marcus Thompson delivers the definitive biography of one of the most extraordinary basketball players in NBA history - Kevin Durant. 

The NBA has never seen a player quite like Kevin Durant. Larry Bird wasn’t as quick, Magic Johnson didn’t have such a range, and Michael Jordan wasn’t seven feet tall. Durant handles the ball like Allen Iverson, shoots like Dirk Nowitzki, and has the scoring instincts of Kobe Bryant. He does it in a body that’s about as big as Hakeem Olajuwon. But ultimately, Kevin Durant is like no one but himself. 

After an incredible first season with Golden State, Kevin Durant earned the coveted NBA Finals MVP award: He was the Warriors’ top scorer in every game of the 2017 Finals, helping the team snatch the title from LeBron James and the defending-champion Cleveland Cavaliers.

As a sports columnist for The Athletic Bay Area and longtime beat reporter covering the Golden State Warriors, Marcus Thompson is perfectly positioned to trace Durant’s inspirational journey. KD follows Durant’s underdog story from his childhood spent in poverty outside DC; to his rise playing on AAU teams with future NBA players; to becoming a star and hometown hero for the Oklahoma City Thunder; to his controversial decision to play for the NBA rival Golden State Warriors; to his growth from prodigy into a man, in the first true inside account of this superstar player.

KD is a powerful, moving biography of a modern-day legend and an essential listen for all sports fans - or anyone who wants to know: What’s it like to shoot for greatness?

On point

Marcus Thompson’s book is extremely well written and gives you great understanding of what makes KD great basketball player and insight to his growth and maturing as a person. Learned about regional basketball in the DMV and many of the players that have come into the league before and with KD. Excellent read or listen.
