Kevin Durant has become the face of the newest NBA team in the midwestern United States, but before he helped the once woeful Seattle Sonics rise from the ashes as the phoenix known as the Oklahoma City Thunder, Durant left his mark on Austin, Texas with one of the most productive seasons by a freshman in NCAA history. Durant’s output extends beyond his impressive scoring numbers and the banners and plaques he left behind at Frank Erwin Center, and has made him a true lifetime Longhorn thanks to an ongoing Nike Basketball deal that sees UT sport special releases like this Nike Zoom KD IV player exclusive.
