kevin durant quotes

I’ve been second my whole life. I was the second-best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I’ve been second in the MVP voting three times. I came in second in the Finals. I’m tired of being second. I’m not going to settle for that. I’m done with it.

Jay-Z. He is somebody that started his own brand from the ground up and look how big it is now. [He is] really inspiring because he thinks about things and really puts it into action. A lot of people have thoughts that just sit there but he has really made it work.
—  Kevin Durant, speaking to Sports Illustrated on how Jay Z inspires him in the business world.
