His recent demand to be traded from Brooklyn to, well, just about anywhere had caused some to question if he has the drive and attitude needed to win another Finals.
This comes on the heels of a two subpar seasons for Durant’s team, leading others to wonder if the man has lost his touch.
According to one well-respected basketball figure, he hasn’t.
KD works out to pure exhaustion. And continues to go HARDER towards the end of the workout. AND didn’t take a water break. Haven’t seen bro workout since we was high school. NOTHING has changed! Keep being you bro! Your work ethic different.✊🏾 @KDTrey5 #NBA

While some might question his decision to not take a break to hydrate, you can’t deny that this sounds like Durant is getting focused and determined for the new season.
It will be interesting to see what happens to Durant in the weeks ahead.
Eventually his situation with the Nets will resolve, likely landing Durant on a different team.
Will this change of scenery be what Durant needs to lead his team to another championship?
Few people doubt that he is a remarkable athlete, he’s easily one of the best alive.
But there are scores of people who question his leadership skills and his team mentality.
To truly be a part of a winning team again, he will need to enhance that part of his game.
