Heading to Austin to become a member of the Texas Longhorns basketball team took a major leap of faith from Kevin Durant, he chronicles in a Nike commercial that also promotes the seventh edition of his signature shoe line:

The most notable moment in the video that runs for just over a minute is his recollection of how scary it was to travel to Austin without knowing anyone, but that he felt at home as soon as he arrived.

For someone like me who came to Austin with similar circumstances in not knowing anyone, those statements ring absolutely true -- Austin felt like home for me when I arrived and I still consider going to the University of Texas to be the best decision that I ever made.

Hook 'em, KD!
