Kevin Durant decided to bypass the media and go straight to his fans live on YouTube to talk about how he stays inspired, even though he is watching his Golden State teammates from the bench this year.
The Golden State Warriors have busted out into a 2-0 lead over the Portland Trail Blazers during the first round of the NBA Playoffs, but KD has been sidelined with a calf injury.
He will most likely have to rely on his Splash Brother teammates for the remainder of the series, – a disappointment after the big trade from the Oklahoma City Thunder – after the team showered him with a two-year, $54 million contract.
In his recent YouTube live with fans, Kevin Durant shouted out his team and expressed his confidence in them to perform without him in the lineup.
Durant seems to be excited about the playoffs and saddened that he is temporarily being held out of the games.
As intense as the playoffs can be, Durant credits his “simple lifestyle” to how he relaxes and escapes the dramatic NBA season crescendo.
Durantula said he is most relaxed in his natural habitat off the court – the studio.
KD previewed a beat that he made while traveling to a recent road game and he hones his creative side on the popular production platform fruity loops.
Durant also gave a behind-the-scenes look at the view from his studio, where one can take in some of the most beautiful views in the country.
While giving the candid MTV cribs style tour of the multimillion dollar compound Durant exclaimed:
“I enjoy the simple things in life and this view is one of them,” referring to his beautiful surroundings.
Be on the lookout for Durant’s “Still KD” docu-short coming out this weekend to get a glimpse of how one of basketball’s biggest superstars prepares for some of the most intense moments in the game.
