In this middle-grade biography, acclaimed sports journalist Dan Wetzel tells the inspirational real-life story of NBA superstar Kevin Durant!

In 2016, Kevin Durant shocked the basketball world when he decided to sign with the Golden State Warriors. Many questioned why one of the league's best players would join a team that was already stacked with talent—didn't he want to make a name for himself as the sole leader of a team?

Kevin would have the last laugh, winning two championships and putting to rest any questions about his legacy. In choosing to tune out the noise, he instead set his sights on success. Even after his father abandoned the family when he was a kid, when he was told he was too skinny to make an impact in the NBA, Kevin ignored the critics and forged his own path to victory. Filled with sports action and comic-style illustrations, this inspiring biography recaps the life of one of the most talented scorers in NBA history.
