Kevin Durant the Slim Reaper IWS Person of the Week

The IWS Person of the Week is NBA Superstar Kevin Durant!

KD or “Slim Reaper” as his is being called (or you could go with his previous nickname “Durantula” if you prefer) is in his 7th year in the league with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was the #2 overall pick in the 2007 draft out of the University of Texas.

He was also part of the 2012 Team USA gold medal Olympic team.

It’s really hard to believe that back in 2007 people not only argued over who should be the #1 pick, Durant or tOSU’s Greg Oden, but Portland actually took Olden first!!!! Crazy!

Anyway, if you are a racist aren’t an NBA fan you might not have seen what a show Durant has been putting on the last few weeks. He has lit up the scoreboard and carried the Thunder while superstar teammate Russell Westbrook is injured. He scored 30 or more points in 12 straight games. The only reason he was “held” to 26 by the Brooklyn Nets was because the Thunder had such a huge lead Kevin didn’t even play in the fourth quarter!

So anyway, congrats to Kevin Durant not only on his great success in the NBA, but on winning IWS Radio’s Person of the Week!
