It seems like eons ago, but the Kevin Durant World Tour that the DC native went on in the Summer of 2011 is something worth remembering. As we embark on the journey towards Game Five of the Western Conference Finals, its worth remembering the fact that this season wasn’t promised to us. Miami and Boston might actually give us a series worth a damn, and the Spurs and Thunder might give us a series of the ages.
Kevin Durant carried the torch this summer, and this documentary details the life and times of a man that was determined to live the Nike lifestyle mantra of “Basketball Never Stops.” Great work by the fellas at The Mars Reel for putting this together.
