Welcome to My Blog!

What’s good fans? Welcome to my personal blog. This is my first blog post! I’m going to keep you guys updated on what’s going on with me on and off the court, so enjoy and keep coming back.

I am a big fan of Twitter, Facebook and other social media. It’s a lot of fun being social with everybody who is a basketball fan, who loves to watch us play and loves to watch me play. That’s why I do this. It’s pretty cool just to meet some of the people I’ve met so far on Twitter and Facebook. There’s just a lot of great basketball fans who respect the game and really know me as a player.

43667248I’ve already given away some shoes and Nike care packages on Twitter to fans that answered trivia questions about me, and that was a lot of fun. It’s just something I wanted to do…I was in a giving mood, and it’s always good to give back to the fans.

Right now we’re on another road trip. We just played Kobe and the Lakers on Sunday (Tough loss!). Now we’re in Utah for a game against the Jazz on Tuesday.

We’ve been on the road a lot this season, which has been one of our first tests — how to get through long road trips. We’ve already played in San Antonio, Sacramento, L.A., Miami and Orlando.

Our last trip was very rewarding for us. There were some ups and downs on the trip, but we learned a lot. We learned how to handle six games in nine nights. Remember, we’re all still young guys learning how to go through that. We won a couple, we lost a couple. It was a good learning experience.

For those who want to know what I like to do on road trips, I spend most of my time listening to a lot of music, watching a lot of movies and just playing video games. I’m kind of basic. I don’t go really go out too much. I go to the malls here and there, but most of the time I play music, listen to music, make my own music and watch TV.

thumb.phpBut actually when we were in Miami, me and the guys went to a restaurant there called Prime 112 and they had a dessert there called fried Oreos — one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. It was very, very good. If you’ve ever had them, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Hopefully I’ll go back down there to get some more of those.

When we’re on the road I usually go out to eat wherever the guys want to go. We usually just go to the mall or go to the movies, so we just pick a place that’s close by. We never plan out where we’re going to eat. If we see a place that we like we’ll just go there. I like to eat a lot of pastas, like from the Cheesecake Factory. We go there a lot. Actually, I think that’s a main place we go to on every road trip.

That place is so good, we just can’t stay away. The strawberry lemonade, the stuffed tortillas…Me and Russ always get that.

Well, that’s it for now. I hope this lets you in on a little bit about me. I’ll have another post for you later this week.

    Very cool Kevin I love the old school Jordan's in the shoe picture. I wish my Jordan's looked that good but I abused them back in the day scraped up the toes pretty bad. I still have them though I break them out every once in a while just to see people's reactions. Any way this is a great way to see the real Kevin Durant I will have to let my kid read the blog he is a big fan.

    Hey there!
    Love the way your starting off the blog.
    May I suggest you do a random thoughts section on some days..I like doing that with my friends so we can see what everyone is thinking about no matter the subject :)
    Oh and next time you go to the cheesecake factory make sure to have the Oreo Mudslide Cheesecake if your a chocolate lover. It makes all my stress melt away every time I have it!
    I hope to catch a live game soon even though I missed ya'll when you were in MIA, I guess I will have to travel to catch one :)

    Follow me on Twitter..I already got you on my list ;)

    Oh, and stuffed tortillas??? I will have to check those out!

    KD!

  • jbeyda

    I love the way you've embraced social media. Sports is such a natural venue for things like facebook, twitter and blogs. I also think its great how you and your teammates interact over twitter. you can see that there is real chemistry with your team

    Keep up the good work.

  • Juice

    Celtics fan here. Have a lot of respect for you. You're definitely my favorite player after Paul Pierce of course! Keep it up man. Hope things work out for you in OKC. If not, Boston would love having you.

    In 2k10, I definitely traded to get you on Boston. It's the new Big 3…Pierce, KG and Durant baby! Had to get a little younger.

    Next time you're at the Cheesecake Factory, you need to try that Chicken Bellagio pasta dish.

    Ha, what would it take to get an autographed jersey?!

    Hello, I'm Brazilian and a big fan of their basketball. good luck this season.

    Kevin Durant for all star game!

    Hi KD. Big Kevin Durant fan here, though I must admit that I'm a Warriors fan (having grown up in Northern California) so I hope you won't be offended :) I think it's cool that you've decided to start blogging–Gilbert Arenas can't be the only NBA player to have a presence online. I look forward to checking in often to see what's going on with the Thunder!

  • SBible

    Hey Kevin…HOOPSWORLD has a page devoted to current Thunder news, articles, etc. Here's the link: http://www.hoopsworld.com/teams/team.asp?TEAM_I…
    It would great if you could add it to your “Thunder Blogs/News” list!

    This Blog is a great idea — very cool that you are so open with the fans :)

    Mannn, fried oreos? Good stuff KD!

  • clangus

    I enjoyed your first blog KD. Nice to see the real side of you. I'll be following regularly.

    I am a big fan from Australia. You should come down here in the off season! It'd be quiet and we have great weather. I am in Perth, so i could show you around a bit. Perth is pretty laid back, so you can just relax and enjoy yourself without the “celebrity bit”. Bring your family!

  • Stacks

    Nice blog KD. Keep up the good work on the court, your,ll a great player.

  • jusbillz

    whats poppin kev?

  • Ian Alexander

    Hey Kev, this is Ian, your RA from San Jac in the summer of 06. I've been watching you, and you're making me real proud – I represent for you wherever I go. You were a great resident and are a stand-up guy. Glad to have spent that summer with you around!

  • RipCity

    I'm excited to see you doing so well! I'm a big Portland trailblazers fan, and it saddens me that you guys had to move to Oklahoma City. It would of been a lot of fun to see the sonics and Blazers in the western conference Finals someday. How are you enjoying Oklahoma? I imagine it's probably pretty similar to Portland in that you're the only Pro game in town. Does more pressure come from that or less?

  • Patrick Widmer

    Keep up the good work Durant. I'm from Ohio, die hard Cavs fan but I love the way all you young players are really carrying the league with class. Between you, Paul, Lebron, Roy, Wade, Howard, etc. this league is going to be great for all LONG time….peace to you and yours man

  • Patrick Widmer

    P.S. Don't let those haters nit picking about PER or whatever Hollinger on ESPN calls it get you down man, hard work is goin take you to top 5 in the league or better

  • TempBoyBrandon

    KD,

    Love how open you are with the fans! It's cool that you're so down to earth and laid back. We love that about you here in OKC. We love you and we love the team! God bless you bro, I'll be following the blog!

    in Christ,
    Brandon

  • TempBoyBrandon

    ps: I'll be looking for you at the Cheesecake Factory in OKC! haha!

    psps: My girlfriend made me some fried oreos a couple of months ago cause she loves them. They were awesome.

  • J-ROD

    Cheesecake Factory – RIBS – THey are killer there, try them if you haven't yet.
