According to Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch, HBO and Durant are teaming up for an HBO special called The Offseason: Kevin Durant, which will debut on Nov. 4.

Executive producer Jamie Patricof has been helping create the special alongside Durant, and he's apparently been blown away with how hard the reigning MVP works in the offseason.

“The dedication to his craft, but more importantly who he is as a person and a human being, make him one of the most unique people I have had the opportunity to collaborate with," Patricof told Dan Devine from Yahoo Sports. "[...] I am truly excited for people around the world to get a good look at who Kevin is and what makes him tick.”

With the other sports-related shows they've done, there's a good chance HBO is able to get an incredibly in-depth look at Durant's offseason.
