Back in July, Kevin Durant, upon joining the Brooklyn Nets it was announced that he would be changing his number, and now he will wear No. 7. He had previously played in the number 35 his entire career in the NBA.

Kevin would debut the number change on Twitter, before going into more details on the transition from his 35 Ventures account and shared that it meant a new chapter in his life.

Heavy’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson recently reported that the reason why Kevin Durant wears number seven because it is a reminder that he wants to get more rings than Michael Jordan. He was informed of this a couple of days ago, and the number seven “Quietly” carries a lot of weight with Kevin Durant.

Kevin Durant is currently recovering from rupturing his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Durant has been ruled out of the 2019-20 season as he rehabs his Achilles. He also has been filmed moving a little on the court and getting some shots up at the Brooklyn Nets facility in a video tweeted out by Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News. There was also another video tweeted out by Christopher Lavinio, who is a Digital Strategy at I Heart Radio.
