Brooklyn Nets' All-Star Kevin Durant was recently on the Forbes cover model for their Class of 2020 30 under 30 list. Durant took to Twitter to share the news. He added that he was honoured that Forbes gave him the recognition. The former No 2 overall draft pick is one of the best NBA players and also a successful businessman. Durant was one of the founders for Thirty-Five Ventures. The company takes various startups under its wing and invests in them. In an interview, Durant stated that their aim was to support startups and the younger generation by providing them tools for success and helping them tackle tough issues.
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).
