Kevin Durant not ‘moved’ by pursuit of being basketball’s GOAT

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant is in the conversation for best basketball player in the world. Over time, he may even have a place in debates over the greatest player of all time (aka “GOAT”). But Durant says being considered the “GOAT” isn’t what drives him.

Durant is quite active on social media and often engages in conversations with those who reach out to him. Another such instance occurred on Twitter Wednesday. The exchange began with a question that was posed to Durant, asking him whether he thought he belonged in the conversation with Michael Jordan.

Durant and the fan then talked about the value of championship rings on player legacies.

Then came the GOAT debate, and that’s when Durant said being the GOAT isn’t something that “moves” him.

Durant has been seen as someone who marches to the beat of his own drum. While the quest to be the best ever is a mantra that rings true with athletes across the sports world, Durant claims to not be one of those athletes.

Is that because he knows he’s already too far behind to catch up to the likes of LeBron James or Michael Jordan? Or because he knows it’s an argument you can never win? Either way, at least KD is using social media in a much more positive way now.
