He IS Kevin Durant.
It goes without saying, but Kevin Durant, fresh off a four-year, $198 million max extension with Brooklyn, is now Captain America as well. KD got the job done to lead Team USA to their fourth straight Olympic gold, beating France is a close game at the Tokyo Games.
Despite a winding and often frustrating road that included two losses in exhibition games and a loss to France in the Olympics’ opening round, the U.S. got their revenge and that elusive gold. Final score, Team USA, 87, France, 82. It was yet another Olympic gold medal game that featured a memorable Durant performance.
