Kevin Durant likes his drive to games at Oracle, especially after he makes his way down the hill. Across MacArthur Boulevard. Past the McDonald’s in the Eastmont Town Center. All the way down 73rd Avenue. That’s when the drive feels like home. The fast food chains. The flea market. The grime. The kids running around in the street. Most people see this as the rough part of town they want to speed through. Durant soaks it in. “It reminds me so much of Chocolate City, man,” Durant said, using a nickname for his hometown of Washington, D.C. “I be missing home a lot. So when I ride down through East Oakland to go to the game, I get my fix. I definitely feel like I’m riding around in my own neighborhood.”
