On the eastern outskirts of Washington, D.C., in Prince George’s County, Maryland, Durant and his siblings spent their formative years. He started out exceptionally tall and grew to 6 feet tall while still in middle school.
When he was younger, Durant aspired to join Vince Carter’s Toronto Raptors, his favorite team and player. He was teammates with future NBA players Michael Beasley, Greivis Vásquez, and Ty Lawson while playing Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball for multiple teams in the Maryland region. Durant is still close with Ty Lawson.
He started wearing the number 35 at this time in memory of his AAU coach Charles Craig, who died at the age of 35.

Behind Greg Oden, he was largely regarded as the second-best high school talent in 2006. If the NBA had not instituted the one-and-done rule, Durant had declared for the 2006 NBA draft, in which his childhood favorite team, the Toronto Raptors, had the first overall choice.
For the Texas Longhorns in the 2006–07 college season, Durant, who was now 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m) tall, averaged 25.8 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. Texas had an overall record of 25-10 and a conference record of 12-4 at the end of the season.

Durant won the John R. Wooden Award, the Naismith College Player of the Year Award, as well as all eight other prestigious accolades and prizes for his exceptional play, making him the undisputed national player of the year.

Before joining the Golden State Warriors in 2016, he spent nine seasons with the team before it changed its name to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008. He won back-to-back NBA titles in 2017 and 2018.
He signed with the Nets as a free agent in the summer of 2019 after suffering an Achilles injury during the 2019 championships. One of the best players and scorers of all time is largely considered as being Durant.
