With the 2013 NBA Playoffs underway, Sports Illustrated decided to run an NBA related cover story for their April 29 issue, which ended up being a story profiling the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant.

The cover for that issue has been released and features an absolutely fantastic quote from Durant, seen here:

In case you can’t read the quote, it says: “I’ve been second my whole life. I was the second-best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I’ve been second in the MVP voting three times. I came in second in the Finals. I’m tire of being second…I’m done with it.”

That’s a pretty powerful quote from Durant, who led his team to a decisive game one victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday. If there’s one thing the quote does tell us, though, it’s that Durant clearly isn’t content with anything less than an NBA Championship.
