Kevin Durant On When He Plans On Retiring From NBA; How He Wants People To Remember His Style Of Play

At this point in Kevin Durant’s career, he is easily a hall of famer. 2x NBA champion, 2x, NBA Finals MVP, 9x all-star, NBA All-Star Game MVP, and 6x All-NBA First Team. When asked by ESPN, when he’d like to walk away from the game, he said in five years at the age of 35, per ESPN.

KD said he enjoys the game so much but obviously, can’t play it forever.

“This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it,” said Durant. “No matter how much you enjoy it, nobody wants to be in school that long. I know I don’t. At some point, you have to be ready to graduate. Thirty-five, that’s just a number in my mind.”

Durant knows that the numbers and accolades will come on its own so he’s just focused on trying to be the best he can be and play the game the right way.

“Everything else, the numbers, the accolades, that stuff will fall in line organically,” he said. “So I’m not trying to go out there and force anything. I’m just trying to play the right brand of basketball. Anything else, the numbers, the accolades, that stuff will fall in line organically.

“Especially if I continue to approach the game the right way every day like I’ve been doing, hell yeah. Hell yeah I can move on. No matter how many points I score, no matter how many people I pass up, no matter how many points I leave on the table, my legacy, as we always like to talk about, I can go up and ask any person who has ever seen me play and they’ll have a different way of viewing my game.”

Durant has nothing else to prove in his amazing NBA career. He’s one of the best scorers of all-time and one thing that fans would like to see though is him coming back to Oklahoma City before he retires to finally deliver the city a championship.
