If you ain't first, you're last. That's the way Ricky Bobby Kevin Durant sees things. So he's fed up with finishing in second place when it comes to, well, everything. From the MVP voting to the NBA Finals, he's finished in second over and over and over in his career. And he's ready for it to end. So when he was asked about it during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, he gave one of the best quotes of his entire NBA career. And SI turned it into one of their best NBA covers in recent history.

If you weren't excited to see KD play in the NBA Playoffs already, we guarantee you're excited to see him now. What a quote.
