Kevin Durant Joins Elite Group With Kobe Bryant & John Wall

It wasn’t enough that Kevin Durant was voted in as a starter in this Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game, he also had to make some noise before All-Star Weekend even officially got underway. This morning, Durant signed an exclusive multi-year agreement for trading cards and memorabilia with Panini America (which will include product and brand advertising), joining an elite group of official company spokesmen than includes Kobe Bryant and John Wall. Below, check out an exclusive interview with KD, inside his house during his first signing session.

Durant will make his debut as an exclusive Panini athlete by appearing on packaging and in Panini’s 2010-11 Absolute Memorabilia product slated to release in early March at retailers and hobby shops nationwide.
