For Kevin Durant, skinniness has been a skill. The 6-foot-9, allegedly 235-pound forward has used his lithe frame to slip through holes in the defense, helping to make him one of the best scorers in the NBA. After falling short of a championship in his first trip to the NBA Finals, Durant decided that being unnaturally light is not all it is cracked up to be.
