Durant Not Yet An All-Star
Kevin Durant was not named to the All-Star team when the names were announced, but he is not worried about it.
Durant may not be an All-Star for the NBA yet, but he is already an All-Star in the minds of the Thunder nation.
“Just to be in the conversation for a young guy like me feels good,” Durant said. “It just pushes me to work harder and help this team get better. I’m excited to be playing in the rookie-sophomore game and be part of All-Star weekend.”
“Kevin will get stronger physically,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “He’s still thin. But from last year to this year (it’s been a big improvement). Last year when he got hit he was on the floor a lot. You don’t see him on the floor as much this year because he’s gotten stronger.”
Durant is sixth in the NBA in scoring and third in the western conference behind only Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki. That is not bad company.
