This might not come as a surprise to some, as KD is well known in sports circles to be a tech investor. He even has his own company centered around managing his investments, aptly named the Durant Company. One of the companies he added to his portfolio was Vision Esports.
Vision just happens to be the entity that currently owns Echo Fox, and they also have a few other game-related projects. KD wouldn’t be alone as the only person from the sports world too, as the Yankees, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the San Jose Shark’s minority owner Stratton Sclavos all have put money into Vision.
