Kevin Durant opened up to fans on Twitter early Tuesday morning, sharing his apparent admiration for Mike Trout.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star let the world know on Twitter that he was a fan of the Los Angeles Angels phenom:

Durant won the 2013-14 NBA Most Valuable Player award, so it should come as no surprise that he respects another athlete who is near the top of his sport.

Trout has wowed many with his incredible play throughout the first three full seasons. Of course, Durant probably believes that Trout will eventually join the MVP club at some point.
