Became the first Supersonic to win Rookie Of The Year.
Although he only played in Seattle for one year before the team became the Thunder, Durant ensured that he would go down in the Sonics record book. No Sonic player had ever taken home the Rookie of the Year award, so Durant’s incredible first season made him the first and also last to do so, unless the Sonics are re-born. On his way to this award, KD also broke the SuperSonics record for rookie scoring, a record that was set by Bob Rule and lasted 40 years. Had the team stayed in Seattle a few more years, they soon would have had their first MVP too.
