As you might have heard, the Sonics picked up the #2 pick in the draft. Supposed to yield some guy named Durant.
Anyhoo, the folks at espn are interested in all this draft stuff, too. So much so that they brought Durant in for a Q&A with fans. Here's an abbreviated transcript:
Andrew (Charlotte, NC): To Kevin Durant: What current NBA player would you compare your game to?
Kevin Durant: That's a tough one. I'd say probably Dirk Nowitzki, with the way he can shoot and post up.
Lehi utah : hey kevin , What do you think Of playing with Ray allen and rahard lewis if you get drafted by the sonic.
Kevin Durant: If I go to the Sonics, that would be tremendous, playing alongside two all-stars. I know they would teach me a lot of things.
Jon ((Dallas)): Out of all the players you went against last year in the NCAA, who was the best player, other than you?
Kevin Durant: Oooh. Julian Wright. He would just hit shots over the top of me. I said, I couldn't do anything to stop that.
John Balcita (Carson, CA): Before a game, do you listen to any music to pump you up? What's your pre-game ritual?
Kevin Durant: Before the game, I just sit and be focused. I listen to Usher before the game. It calms me down a little bit.
Okay, I'll admit, that was useless. I now know that Durant likes to listen to Usher before games. Whoop-de-doo.
Anyways, the point is that I can't remember the last time a Sonic-related person had such a high profile at espn.com. We're livin' in different times, folks.
