NBA Draft: Durant At Last

By - June 28, 2007

Kevin Durant took the microphone with a jovial "How ya'll doing!" and started fielding questions from the biggest flock of reporters since Oden.

The consensus National Player of the Year had just been informed of a trade that sent would-be teammate Ray Allen to Boston in exchange for Delonte West, Wally Szczerbiak and Jeff Green (this year's No. 5 pick). Green and Durant are both Beltway area natives and played AAU ball with one another for the D.C. Blue Devils.

But the Texas stud rejected the notion that he'd have to be the team's savior in Allen's absence.

"When you played since you were eight or nine years old," Durant said, "you know this game is not a one-man sport."

Here comes Yi -- and, by far, the biggest mob of reporters yet. Madness.
