Will Kevin Durant Attend 2022 NBA All-Star Game?
Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant won’t attend the 2022 NBA All-Star Game. Although he received the most fan votes of any player in the Eastern Conference for the captain, Durant was not scheduled to play in the game due to a knee injury.
But now Kevin Durant will no longer attend at all. Durant’s mother, Wanda, announced on Instagram that Barbara Davis, his mother, and Kevin Durant’s grandmother, died Sunday.
“It is with great sadness that we share with family and friends that our Dear Sweet Mama, BARBARA A. Davis, transitioned early this morning,” Wanda Durant wrote. “Words can not describe how our family feels doing this time. We want to thank everyone for their prayers, condolences, and well wishes. God is GOOD and His PEACE comforts all of us.”
