It’s safe to say that Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant created some of his best basketball memories during his high school days when he played in the McDonald’s All-American Game.
Durant revealed this in a recent episode of his Boardroom podcast. The 2023 McDonald’s All-American Game was scheduled for tonight, so Kevin Durant and his co-host discussed the event. KD shared his love for the annual event, remarking that he had “the greatest experience” when he was there.
The Suns wing attended the 2006 version of the event where he won MVP along with former NBA player Chase Budinger. Durant was part of the West roster that won 112 to 94, during which he scored 25 points and captured 5 rebounds.
“The greatest experience, man.Chase Budinger and I were named co-MVP. I had a great time, it was my first time in San Diego, mingling with all the guys you go to war with, play against all summer long, damn close to your whole high school career. You see all these guys you’ve built relationships with.”, shared Durant.
