Very few athletes who are stars in their sport no matter which one escape some type of controversy in their careers Kevin Durant is no exception as his decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016 to join the Golden State Warriors set off a furious reaction not seen since LeBron James left Cleveland to sign with the Miami Heat in 2010 The story behind Durant s decision as well as a look into his complicated world is told in this excellent unauthorized biography by Marcus ThompsonHaving already penned one best selling book about a Golden State star Stephan Curry Thompson writes about Durant s ascent to stardom from Prince George County in the Washington DC metro area or DMV for DCMarylandVirgina as the region is called throughout the book where he was not only competing but thriving in games against boys older than him The book then follows Durant to the University of Texas for his one spectacular season for the Longhorns which vaulted him to being the 2 pick in the NBA draft by the Seattle SuperSonics He had a fine rookie season being named the Rookie of the Year and followed the team when it moved to Oklahoma City This time in Durant s career was my only negative takeaway from the book there was far too little written about Durant s time in Seattle almost like it never happened That is ironic because later when the Warriors and Sacramento Kings played an exhibition game in Seattle Durant was the recipient of much love from the Seattle fansWhile the reader will learn about Durant s rise to superstar status while he was on Oklahoma City what the reader learns about Durant s personality and the conflict between Durant s inner feelings and the public off court persona he portrayed makes for some of the best reading in the book and why it is a compelling read In public Durant never showed any tattoos for a long time but he had a lot of ink with significant personal meaning on areas of his body where they would be hidden by clothing in public appearances Through interviews with other players and research Thompson achieves something difficult to do providing the reader with an insightful look into an athlete who is still in the prime of his or her career without interviewing the subject Of course it has to be taken that this is the viewpoint of Thompson but it still comes across as a very interesting topic Thompson also discusses at length the most controversial part of Durant s career his decision to leave the Thunder two years after declaring he would never go elsewhere and sign with the Warriors who were already a championship team There are many reasons that have been discussed in the media before and Thompson addresses every one of them Much like Durant s versatility in his game a seven footer who has a great shooting touch and an explosive first step Thompson writes about this controversy with much skill as the reader will finish this part of the book with an understanding of what Durant did That doesn t mean those who were angry with this move will accept it they will just become informed A great look inside the career of one of the best in the game today as well as a compelling read fans of today s NBA will want to add this one to their libraries I wish to thank Atria Books for providing a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
