I have chosen to write about Kevin Durant for many reasons. He’s a perfect example of why I have created Breaking Barriers with Crystal. He is that terrible statistic of coming from a divorced family. He has faced any fear with empowering himself to become an amazing man in business, charity, and sports. He has become quite the businessman by creating programs that supporting our youth and sports. I ask for you to join be in supporting Kevin.

“When I was young, playing basketball was one of the things that kept me out of trouble and kept me focused on my growth and maturity in to the man I would eventually become. For that reason, I’ve always wanted to play a leadership role in communities and neighborhoods – like the one I grew up in – and give kids a chance to choose health, teamwork and basketball over some of the other negative influences they may face. Thanks to Nike and many other supporters, the renovation and development of these basketball courts is the perfect opportunity to open these doors.”
