And he’s not even 30.
But he’s about to be. Durant’s 30th birthday is later this month (September 29, for anyone who cares), but since the team will have training camp underway by that time, he celebrated it a little bit early.
And when you’re that famous, and celebrating an important birthday, you get some star treatment. For Durant, that came in the way of former president Barack Obama.
According to Page Six, Obama delivered a toast (through a video - he wasn’t in attendance) at Durant’s special day. An insider informed the publication that, “A video also played in which Barack Obama made a toast.”
It’s impossible to top an Obama toast, but there were plenty of other stars, including Durant’s teammate Draymond Green, and fellow NBA players Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony. Celebrities such as Chris Rock and Kendall Jenner were also in attendance.
But star-studded events are nothing new in NBA circles - it’s the presidential toast that’s pretty cool. Or, as sideline reporter Kerith Burke noted, it’s certainly a sign of success:

Happy (early) birthday, KD!
