Kevin Durant's Life Story

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.
Kevin and his brother loved playing sports, especially basketball. Their favorite team was the Washington Wizards, whose stars included Michael Jordan. Kevin Durant would later meet Jordan after being voted MVP at a high school tournament that created his name.


  1. Isn't it ironic that something like being tall can both make a young person self-conscious and later lead to success and fame?

    It just goes to show that the human differences we each possess can be used as a source of strength -- but only if we embrace them. --RW

  3. I was just looking at this post and was curious if KD is nice or not? He has been caught for dunking over people and hitting shots in "face".
