    Kevin Durant has been one of the greatest ambassadors of all time for the University of Texas, and up until a few weeks ago many considered him to be the best basketball player on the planet, yet not a peep about him here on Hornfans throughout the playoffs or after his devastating injury. Why is that?

    He was on campus for a grand total of about 4 months and our entire program is a $hit show. He was a good player for the 35 games he played but honestly I don't really think of him that much as a Longhorn. Ambassador or not what has he done for us to really care about him?

    KD has been supportive of UT at every opportunity; showing love by showing up, flashing Horns, wearing UT stuff, giving money, etc.

    I love KD, and why not. He's always behaved as a stand up guy, doing the right thing with class; and being a fine representative for The University. Above all, he is an excellent human being.

    Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. :hookem2:

    I'll clarify first that I don't dislike KD...have nothing against the guy. The question was why no one is talking about him and my point was he was here for 35 games and a few months.

    The $3mil donation is awesome because I think that's the largest donation by a former athlete back to the program. National player of the year is more his award not for the university. I guess we have a trophy, but it really doesn't do anything for us.

    I guess it boils down to he wore a Longhorn jersey for a few months, won some awards and left. Is it cool to say the best player in the NBA played for Texas? Yes! Do I really think about him as a Longhorn? Not really.

    Our basketball program may be a **** show, but I'm not sure what that has to do with KD. I can't think of anyone other than TJ Ford who's contributed more to the program after his time here:

    There's not much love for the BB program on this board at all. The women's BB board has constant traffic

    That's just because those people love to have a never ending stream of slap fights with one another.

    Without Kevin Durant, Golden State is a toss up for the title. That's my props to him....he's the difference maker....and they lost without him....
