Kevin Durant will change jersey numbers for the first time in his career. The former MVP announced on Instagram that he would wear the number 7 this season, as opposed to the number 35, which he wore throughout his career.
Durant, during his tenure as Golden State Champion over the years, was number 35 in establishing himself as a superstar in Oklahoma City and even his rookie campaign in this green-and-gold SuperSonics appearance.
In all, Durant provided 22,940 regular seasonal points in this familiar No. 35 and established himself as a generation talent.
The 30-year-old gave little context for the jersey swap, but dropped a connection to his 35 Ventures company, the parent company that oversees all his other business projects.
This is not the first time Durant has used his popularity to eyebrow his business ̵
Even without the number cha Durant's Brooklyn Nets jersey had to be on the list of top-selling jerseys on which it has spent much of its time over the past decade Chip Brown from the Dallas Morning News wrote in 2006 that Durant wore the number 35 in honor of his former AAU coach Charles Craig, who had been murdered a few years earlier at the age of 35 years.
