The NBA starts today with two great games and above all, the official return to the courts of Kevin Durant after 18 months of inactivity due to a very hard Achilles tendon injury.
Durant is one of the players who perfectly define the quality standard used by the NBA, the tallest. His absence in the league has been notorious, and not only for all Brooklyn Nets fans they had to waitover a year to finally see him defending the colors of the franchise.
After 552 days without stepping on the floor, Durant made his preseason debut with good feelings and 15 points against Washington: “I feel good to have returned to the routine and to the field and feel like a player again. I don’t think I played great, but I had solid moments ”.

The last time Durant played a regular game in the NBA was on June 9, 2019 when, previously injured, tried to force to help his team to turn the series in which the Toronto Raptors dominated 3-1. KD only spent 12 minutes on the court and left due to the worst injury of his career.
Durant will face the Golden State Warriors, a team on which also falls a tremendous expectation after the previous terrible season in which suffered devastating injury to Stephen Curry and what led them to have the worst record in the Western Conference.
