Asking the Inappropriate Question

March 19, 2007

Kevin Durant wasn’t giving us much of a hint about his possible future plans after Texas lost to USC in the NCAA Tournament on Sunday:

“I don’t think that’s an appropriate question right now,” Durant said. “I’m just worried about this team and what we can be next year as a team.”

Could he really be thinking about staying in school? There has been some speculation to that effect, and I understand that right after the season ends is an emotional time. In the coming days and weeks, however, I expect someone will explain to Durant that he would be risking injury and millions of dollars by going back to college for another season.
