Kevin Du­rant

Inside Sport - - PUNTER’S CHANCE -

He has a cham­pi­onship ring and was MVP of the fi­nals aŽer only his first year with the War­riors. Next: flat-out dom­i­nate the fol­low­ing sea­son? Watch­ing the fi­nals, it seems Du­rant is ready to make a de­ci­sive push past LeBron and claim the man­tle of best player in the game. But an off­sea­son of odd, out-of-char­ac­ter com­ments about ri­val shoe brands and his old mates in Ok­la­homa City could hint at dis­trac­tions to come. If this were the Brown­low, we’d also say that Steph Curry is there to take votes away. Bo–om line, though, we should see the best of KD in his age-29 year, and that level of form will be hard to ig­nore. And if he does bag his sec­ond MVP, we’ll surely get to hear him thank his mama again.
