Kevin Wayne Durant was born on September 29, 1988 in Washington, D.C. He is 6' 9" and weighs 235 pounds. He grew up with his older brother Tony in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, just outside the nations capitol. They were raised by their mother Wanda Pratt and her mother Barbara Davis. Their father, Wayne Pratt, left the family before Kevin's first birthday. He came back into his son's life when Kevin was about 13 years old. Kevin was always the tallest boy in his class and was very self-conscious about his height. His mother asked his teachers to put him at the end of lines so that he wouldn't stand out as much.
