Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets sent out a tweet on Wednesday, and his post can be seen embedded below from his Twitter account.
The 11-time All-Star is off to a fantastic start to the season averaging 28.4 points per game, and leading the Nets to a 17-8 record in their first 25 games of the season, which is the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Even though Kyrie Irving has not played in any games this season, Durant and James Harden look like they will still have the Nets as a top contender when the playoffs begin.
On Wednesday evening, the Nets were in Houston to play the Rockets after beating the Mavericks the night before in Dallas, and Durant was ruled out for the game due to rest and the Nets fell to the Rockets 114-104.
