Kevin Durant scored 45 points in Monday’s win by the Brooklyn Nets over the Orlando Magic, which led a reporter to ask him if he’s hoping to win MVP for the second time in his career.
“Not really. I’ve been there, done that, to be honest, and I know it’s gonna take a lot for me to be in that conversation,” Durant said. “I just want the respect from our fan base, and I want them to have a good time when they come to the game, so if that’s what strikes chants up is how I play from the fans, as long as they’re having a good time. But I’m not too worried about accolades at this point in my career.”
Durant won MVP in 2014 and has also won Finals MVP in 2017 and 2018.
