University of Texas Retired His Jersey After His Freshman Year.
Despite being a Longhorn for just one season, UT cemented Durant as a Texas legend by retiring his jersey in 2009. There are only two other basketball jerseys up in the rafters; T.J Ford’s no.11 and Slater Martin’s no 15. During his short time in Texas, Durant earned consensus National Player of the Year honors, becoming the first freshman to do so. He also led the Big 12 in scoring with an impressive 25.8 PPG, in rebounding with 11.1 RPG, and total blocked shots with 67. His sensational individual play, and ability to lead the Longhorns, demonstrated that he had the tools to step up to the NBA and make an immediate impact.
