SAN ANTONIO — Warriors forward

Kevin Durant added a spot on Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world to his ever-growing resume Thursday.

Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services, provided Durant’s testimonial. After writing that “Durant isn’t just an incredible basketball player; he’s an incredible human too,” Cue detailed Durant’s efforts to help at-risk students in his native Prince George’s County, Md., as well as his burgeoning entrepreneurial career.

“He has ridden the ups and downs of following his heart, making a hard choice and taking control of his own career — and has emerged wiser, happier, with his head held high,” Cue wrote. “He’s a role model for us all.”

Durant, 29, recently donated $10 million to establish the first East Coast center for College Track, a program that helps teens from disadvantaged communities attend and graduate from college. In the fall, the Durant Center in Seat Pleasant, Md., will welcome an inaugural class of 60 Suitland High School students.

Kevin Durant Discusses What Makes Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’ Great The Warriors’ superstar and one of Time’s 100 most influential people spoke on the rapper’s smash hit. Kevin Durant, to Spotify Durant’s selection of "God’s Plan" is part of a Spotify playlist, which was compiled by the streaming company after they asked 35 of the names on the Time 100 list what song inspires them. Drake released "God’s Plan" in January with an accompanying music video in February. In the video, Drake gives away just under $1 million to random citizens of Miami. Other songs on the playlist include "Lose Yourself" and "A Sky Full of Stars," which were selected by J.J. Watt and Roger Federer, respectively.

They will spend three to five hours a week after school days at Durant’s facility. The hope is that, within the next 10 years, College Track will help 700-1,000 students in Prince George’s County reach a four-year university.

Durant also has made about 30 investments through the Durant Company. With the help of business partner

Rich Kleiman, Durant runs the company like a private equity fund, taking stakes in everything from startups to hospitality companies.

It all has hardly hurt Durant’s on-court performance. Fresh off being named MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals, he averaged 26.4 points, 5.4 assists and 6.8 rebounds per game this season.
