Watch LeBron James and Kevin Durant Roll Through Akron in New Interview

Share on Nextdoor
The night before the Cavs and the Warriors played for the final time in the regular season, LeBron James and Kevin Durant rolled through Akron together for a candid interview with ESPN's Cari Champion, kicking off the second season of Rolling with the Champion

Playing the part of an Uber driver, Champion asked the pair direct and personal questions while taking them to three of James' old Akron haunts: Summit Lake Community Center (where he first learned to play ball), Spring Hill Apartments (where he lived as a teen) and St. Vincent–St. Mary High School (where he became world famous).

Asked what it's like to play one another, James and Durant didn't hold back.

"It's our obligation to go out and try and kill each other on the basketball floor," James said. 

"It's like waking up and brushing our teeth in the morning, you don't even think about it," Durant countered.

"That's our job, we owe it to our fans," James continued. "We owe it to each other as competitors."

The discussion also turned to politics, growing as men and learning to handle pressure. At the end of the ride they both agreed to give Champion a five-star Uber rating.
