Kevin Durant is no stranger to the All-Star Weekend festivities. In 2010 – his third season in the NBA – he was named an All-Star reserve. He was voted an All-Star starter last year. He’s also logged time in the Rookie-Sophomore game and is the reigning back-to-back H-O-R-S-E champion.
“I feel like a vet now, to be honest,” said Durant, a wide grin spreading across his face. “It was an exciting feeling when I got that call.”
If he had been keeping track of the voting, he may not have been too surprised. Final confirmation, however, inevitably gave him a special feeling.
