Kevin Durant wants to buy an National Basketball Association team

Kevin Durant wants to buy an National Basketball Association team

The channel was the first of its kind for an National Basketball Association athlete as it gave a behind-the-scenes look at his life and his journey to his first National Basketball Association championship.

"They programmed players in the '80s, '90s and early 2000s just to play and to compete against each other and fight against each other", Durant said, via the San Jose Mercury News.

Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry isn't the only player on the team who is interested in owning a sports team in the future. Per Haynes, the two are making themselves well-known to powerful business leaders in the Bay Area.

Michael Jordan remains the most prominent former-player owner (He's also the only African-American principal owner in the four major American sports), but there seems to be a current of ex-stars taking on ownership roles.

There is no doubt that Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant is one of the more polarizing players in the National Basketball Association.

One source close to Durant told ESPN that ownership is a "genuine goal of his after he retires, to add another African-American in the position of majority ownership".

"MJ was the first big Nike athlete, the biggest star of his time, but if you don't have the trajectory, that path, that journey, it's going to be hard to do what he did". I think it should be more guys in the positions of power like general managers and scouts and coaches. Anything that involves the day-to-day operations of these franchises.

In addition to Curry's jersey being the most popular and Durant's being the third-most-popular, Klay Thompson's jersey is No. 13 on the list. "I think more players and more experienced players should be in those positions". "We're looking to build Kevin's channel as a real network for himself and trying to encourage more athletes to look at it as a hub for their content, and look at it as their own Bleacher Report or ESPN", says Kleiman.
