Durant Hopes To Return For 2016 Olympics
Kevin Durant would like to suit up for USA Basketball at the Rio Games in 2016.
“We’ll see,” Durant said, a nod to the 23-and-under age-limit rule proposed for future Olympic competitions. “You never know how these things are going to play out.
“Hopefully,” he said with a smile, “I get a chance to go to the next one.”
Durant set a new Olympic record with 156 points in eight games, including 30 in the gold medal win over Spain.
“I felt like I did it right,” he said. “Out of college I had an opportunity to practice with these guys. Then I went into the Select Team process, and being one of the younger guys that was going to be looked at for years to come. Being one of the main guys on that 2010 team and then having this opportunity to come in here and compete for a gold medal, it was a long journey for me. Even though it was my first one, it was a long journey. I’m glad I got this opportunity and I’m glad I went through those situations and I’m just happy we got this gold.”
