When thinking of iconic basketball players, your mind turns to guys who hooped for the Lakers, Celtics, or Bulls. One team that doesnt cross your mind is the Oklahoma City Thunder, but thats likely to change soon thanks to Kevin Durant. The 22-year-old forward already has a league scoring title under his belt, and last summer, he proved he could be the centerpiece of a great team when he carried Team USA to a FIBA World Championship. All Durant has left to do is win an NBA title.
Durant will bring his electrifying scoring touch to US Airways Center for a showdown with the Phoenix Suns.
