Kevin Durant’s 35th Hour Ep. 2: Hard Work Beats Talent

words // Brandon Richard

Watching last night’s much talked about Team Melo vs. Team Philly game, I couldn’t help but think of how much the content missed what has been Kevin Durant’s offseason competitive fire. The definition of a “gym rat,” KD has been spotted in seemingly every gymnasium in the country this summer preparing for what we hope will be the 2011-2012 NBA season. Durant’s new web series, Kevin Durant’s 35th Hour, has given us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his hectic summer and Episode 2 is available now.

Titled “Hard Work Beats Talent,” Episode 2 takes us to the gym, where we start off with a look at KD’s workout routine with friend and fellow NBA player Austin Daye. Then, Kevin gets in a little leisure time with friends at the mall and bowling alley, before squaring off with LeBron and company in the Goodman League vs. Melo League showdown in Baltimore.
