Kevin Durant considered Duke, Kentucky over Texas

Before Kevin Durant’s MVP season, foot surgery and 30 point outpourings, he was — like most NBA players — a standout college basketball player.

Durant, a native of Rockville, MD, took his talents to the University of Texas, where he lead the Longhorns to a Round of 32 appearance.  In the process, he was also the first-ever Freshman to be named the Naismith College Player of the Year after averaging an astonishing 26 points per game torching opposing defenses.

On Wednesday, as Durant recovers from foot surgery, he hosted a Twitter Q and A with his finals far and near.

One of the most intriguing moments came when Durant admitted he had considered college basketball powerhouses Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky and UCONN along with Texas.

Durant later explained why he chose Texas over the various other potential suitors giving fans valuable information regarding the thought process players take to choosing their college destination.

Then, the Oklahoma City Thunder star began to veer away from the more serious topics and covered some of the below questions.

For better or for worse, Durant’s social media presence will forever be questioned, and until he returns to his MVP form, he presence on the floor will be just as relevant.
