I’m giving you some homework, because it will help the following post (tomorrow’s) if you’ve done some listening.
Bill Simmons, whose podcast I have referenced before, recently had a fantastic conversation with NBA star Kevin Durant on life, career choices and much more. Listen here.
If you want, feel free to stop once Durant’s agent comes on, but the whole show is worth it. I found the conversation interesting as an NBA fan, but also as a young professional viewing the workforce and life in general. Durant is an intelligent dude, and his move from Oklahoma City to Golden State drew a lot of eyeballs (and ridiculous hot takes) last offseason. At times, we as fans forget that Durant, LeBron James, Tom Brady and all the rest are actually human beings too.
I’ll chat about that and more tomorrow.
