OKLAHOMA THUNDER star Kevin Durant is talking a little playoff smack.
Durant and the Thunder lost to the Miami Heat in five games in last season's NBA Finals, and finishing second didn't sit well with him.
"I've been second my whole life," Durant told Sports Illustrated. "I was the second-best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I've been second in the MVP voting three times. I came in second in the Finals. I'm tired of being second. I'm not going to settle for that. I'm done with it."
Durant was asked if he would go easy on his friend, Heat star LeBron James, if they met in the Finals again his year.
