Kevin Durant sends video message to WNBA draftee Azura Stevens
Azura Stevens saw her WNBA dreams come true Thursday night when the Dallas Wings selected her with the No. 6 pick in the 2018 draft. And if that was not enough for the former UConn star, she received a congratulatory video message from none other than Kevin Durant.
What makes Durant’s message so special for Stevens is that the Golden State Warriors superstar is her favorite player and she models her style of play after him.

No words, indeed. It’s abundantly clear just how much Durant’s message meant to Stevens. To say the 6-foot-6 forward had a great night Thursday would be an understatement.
