(Good morning Thunderers. Thanks for your support of Daily Thunder. Most of the t-shirts have been re-stocked and are ready for your money to be thrown at them. Buy ’em up.)
This is part of a new little campaign Nike is running, but I really dig this interview with KD. I love this quote from Durant: “As a team, I just want us to get better each and every day. And win. We’ve been taking losing for two years. I think that each and every game, like I said, we try to get better, but this year we want to win every game we play. That’s the mindset I think I’m coming in with and as the leader of this team, I think all the guys are going to follow. So if I come back with that, I think we’ll be alright.”
You can just feel KD’s hunger to win and be the best he can be. I’m sure it’s contagious. These are the type of things that really hammer home the idea that he can take this team to great places. I think he’s the type of leader that lift his teammates to higher places. Which is what it takes to be great in this league, both as an individual and a team.
