“We’ve never had this big a crowd on grandma’s porch!” – Tony Pratt, Kevin’s older brother
The first stop on the KD tour was Grandma’s house, where Durant spent most of his childhood playing with toys, thinking about basketball, and being taught firm family values. Wanda, who was quickly overcome with emotion, recalled the times when his son played with toy cars on the front porch, drawing up basketball plays for hours on end. While the family no longer lives in that house, the Durant/Pratt family make frequent visits to be reminded of their roots. On the way to Grandma’s House, we drove by the outdoor courts where KD, as a young teen, played against fully grown ballers. There he learned to adapt to physical play, rainy weather, and elevated competition.
