Kevin Durant Joins Elite Group With Kobe Bryant & John Wall

It wasn’t enough that Kevin Durant was voted in as a starter in this Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game, he also had to make some noise before All-Star Weekend even officially got underway. This morning, Durant signed an exclusive multi-year agreement for trading cards and memorabilia with Panini America (which will include product and brand advertising), joining an elite group of official company spokesmen than includes Kobe Bryant and John Wall. Below, check out an exclusive interview with KD, inside his house during his first signing session.

Durant will make his debut as an exclusive Panini athlete by appearing on packaging and in Panini’s 2010-11 Absolute Memorabilia product slated to release in early March at retailers and hobby shops nationwide.

What’s the best basketball card in your collection?

    kevin durant is a scorer supeme with long hands allowing him to get boards and blocks, very nmble making him quick for his length. but no way on earth he ever becomes a better OVERALL player than lebron james!
    i dont care that yall hate on lbj. its cool that he’s in the discussion but o well.

  • @beiber

    @ beiber news

    Pippen was a better allround player then Jordan. Whats your point?

  • .

    shouldn’t it have been John Wall joining Durant and Kobe? kinda interesting that Wall was already a part of this (what with him being a rookie and all), and Durant wasn’t…

    John Wall shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as Durant and Kobe, he got schooled by Jeremy Lin which eventually gave Jeremy his meal ticket to the NBA. Much too over-hyped.

    @ 4 and 5 – debatable points, but because Wall signed FIRST, it would be impossible for him to JOIN Durant, right?

    Durant seems REALLY nice, if not too bright.

    if i told 1 of those two guys to go out there and win me a game, id giv da ball to lbj.
    hhis style bruisees.
    his style electrifies.
    kd is a secret scorer.
    he wont hurt no1. n when his jumper is off, he is just mediocre.
    id rather have a legendary talent in lbj (pippen was great, HOF, not legendary, ) that does everything.
    ppl r suprised wen dey look at box scores and see durant with 28, 30 or 33.
    honestly durant cant see lbj in any category except fg%…..mayb and im only talkin bout 3% n FT%

  • beiber newz

    we all kno if lbj wanted to take it to the hole evrytime he wuld. n wen hes hot hes unstopable.
    lbj has more games i’d wanna watch over n over, not jus for highlights, but for how he dominated n made ppl look like boys.
