According to the site, Forbes' 2020 list features 600 investors who are looking to bring changes to the world. This issue of the 30 Under 30 will have five covers featuring – Durant, Melanie Perkins, The Chainsmokers, Rachel Carlson and 21 Savage. Durant left the Golden State Warriors to join the Brooklyn Nets this offseason. However, Durant will be recovering from an Achilles injury that he suffered from in June and will most probably miss the entire NBA 2019-20 season. The Nets have played well without Durant and have a 10-10 win-loss record after the first 20 NBA 2019-20 games. The Nets will play the Atlanta Hawks next on Wednesday night (Thursday morning IST) at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta at 6:00 AM IST (7:30 PM EST).
