Featuring comic-style illustrations by Marcelo Baez! In 2016, Kevin Durant shocked the basketball world when he decided to sign with the Golden State Warriors.

Kevin would have the last laugh, winning two championships and putting to rest any questions about his incredible legacy. In choosing to tune out the noise, he instead set his sights on success, maintaining the same winning attitude that has helped him achieve and overcome ever since he was kid.
