Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant will become the youngest player in NBA history to win the MVP award this season.
Durant, who just turned 22 years old about a month ago, now belongs in the conversation of the top five players in the NBA. Unlike LeBron James, Durant quietly announced his "decision" to sign an extension with Oklahoma City on his Twitter page.
