This weekend KD will head to Chicago for his 2nd Annual Nike Skills Academy. Some of the top prospects at both the high school and collegiate level will be in attendance. This isn’t just a camp that Kevin puts his name on and stands around and watches. As usual, Kevin uses this as an opportunity to work hard and get better. Here’s Nike Basketball Product Line Manager, Will Eberhart describing what he saw out of KD at last year’s camp:
He gets up at 7 in the morning, hits the weights and goes to the gym. At his Skills Camp, he’d go through the drills full speed with the High School kids in the morning, take some shots in between, and then do all of the drills again when the college kids came. He’d grab lunch, get up a couple hundred shots, and then do the High School second session, and then do the College second session of the day. He’d go through at least three sessions a day!
Seems Kevin’s favorite quote “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard” isn’t just something he says, but something he lives by daily. Nike Basketball and Team KD will have you covered throughout the weekend with updates. Make sure you follow KD on Twitter and Facebook and Nike Basketball on Twitter and Facebook for all of the updates from the camp.
