GQ X HIRO CLARK FOR KEVIN DURANT
After nine often frustrating years in the league, he was a champion, the consensus best player. Durant was the finals MVP. In Game 3, with his team trailing the Cleveland Cavaliers with under a minute to go, he hit the shot of his life – a three-pointer, tossed up as casually and optimistically as a wave hello, over LeBron James, his role model and rival. "That was the best moment I ever had," Durant told GQ, "I made the game-winning shot in the finals against my fucking idol. I felt like he was passing the torch to me."
Now, Durant is back with the Brooklyn Nets and we're ready to see him do it all over again.
