Recently, Kevin Durant was on the Dan Patrick Show where he discussed everything from the Manti Te'o saga to the possibility of playing as long as Kobe Bryant. However, one interesting part of the interview came when Patrick asked Durant who he wanted to play for growing up. Check out his surprising response below:

"Believe it or not, I wanted to play for the Toronto Raptors; that was my favorite team. [Dan Patrick: Why?] I was a big Vince Carter fan growing up. I liked their jerseys to be honest. They were a new team when I was growing up, so I wanted to be a part of that. [Dan Patrick: You loved Vince Carter because of his jumping ability?] His enthusiasm he showed, just his athleticism, and how he brought Toronto from being one of the newer teams in the league to almost going to the Finals. He changed the culture there in Toronto."

We can't blame Durant. Those Raptors jerseys were pretty dope and Vinsanity was that dude back in the day.
