Kevin Durant’s first Suns home game on Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder brings some nostalgia to longtime fans of his illustrious career.

After he was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics out of Texas in 2007, the team moved to Oklahoma City the following year and Durant rose to stardom as a perennial All-Star.

Durant and his former teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden led the Thunder to the 2012 finals but lost to the LeBron James-led Miami Heat. Two years later, he won the league’s MVP and gave his memorable emotional speech during that award’s ceremony about his mother’s financial struggles and sacrifices for him and his brother, calling thr the now oft-used phrase “The real MVP.”
