From Gary Parrish: “I remember being in Austin during the fall of 2006 and going to lunch at a local seafood joint with Kevin Durant. The place wasn’t packed, but it was busy. And even though we sat there for around two hours, not one time did anybody walk over and ask Durant whether he was the heralded recruit who would, months later, become the star of college basketball and, years later, an NBA scoring champion. Folks just didn’t seem to care. Durant still had yet to play a game.”
