It's official

Kevin Durant took the leap today and announced he will enter the NBA draft. This does not come as much of a surprise. The money is too much to turn down. I would never feel bad for a guy in his situation. Yet I look at my massive student loans and don't regret my four years in college. Granted no one was going to pay me millions until of course SBN came calling. But it seems like Durant wanted to do at least 2 years. He's going to miss Austin next year. In closing check out his stats. They are even better than I remember:

"The Big 12 player and freshman of the year, he averaged 25.8 points and 11.1 rebounds -- one of three players in the country to average more than 20 points and 10 rebounds.

He shot 47 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point range and 82 percent from the foul line. He led the Longhorns in steals and blocked shots and scored at least 30 points a Big 12-record 11 times."
