Kevin Durant Thought Stephen Curry Was White When They First Met

Back in 2014, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, James Harden, and Anthony Davis linked up for an NBA 2k promotion event. During the event, Durant shared a hiliarious story about his first impression of Stephen Curry when they first met.

“I was about 10 years old, and our AAU team drove down to Charlotte to play,” Durant said. “I thought he was white. He was this yellow kid, right? I’m just being real now, right? Where I come from, in the hood, we don’t see that. We don’t see the light-skinned guys around. It was all guys like me.”

“I walk in the gym and this guy’s stepping across half court just pulling jump shots,” Durant said. “Splash. Splash. And when we played him, he had like 35 and he was like 10 years old. I was like, who is this? And 10 years later … that was Steph Curry.”
