With basketball back in season, it’s easy to start thinking about the best players in the league. Two of the most common are the great Lebron James and Kevin Durant. While Lebron James is the most popular player in the league, Kevin Durant also has a tremendous amount of talent.
He’s won several MVP awards, including a Finals MVP in 2018. But he’s rarely given the amount of credit he deserves because of his move from the Thunder to the Golden State Warriors. Regardless of his team of choice, his talent, hard work, and dedication is immense.

Are you constantly seeking growth in your life? If you’re reading this, I’m guessing yes. But most people aren’t trying to get better.
Because seeking growth, in any area of your life, requires change. And change brings uncertainty. Most people don’t want to get out of their comfort zone which is why so many people stay stuck, living the same day each day.
Keep growing, keep striving, and get out of your comfort zone as often as possible. Like Kevin Durant said, “When people are used to doing something, they want you to stay in that lane.”
“Every memory I had growing up was involving a basketball. I didn’t go to the prom and stuff like that. It was always basketball for me.” – Kevin Durant
