It’s been proven that you can’t always believe what you read in Rolling Stone, but the pictures don’t lie. Sure inside the magazine NBA superstar Kevin Durant is quoted as implying some of his former teammates on the OKC Thunder are “selfish.” (Durant led the team in shot attempts, btw.) But there’s always a chance that Durant was misquoted or that his words were misconstrued to make a bigger splash. There is no getting around the cover photo though. That’s not photoshop. That’s what Kevin Durant is wearing. His jeans and white tank top undershirt are his sartorial statement as he moves from OKC to the Bay Area — the tech capital of the world and home to Silicon Valley.
Is Durant saying he won’t change, won’t become another yoga-pants-wearing-latte-sipping-code-crunching-clean-living-mountain-biking-Silicon-Valley twentysomething? Apparently. Durant’s game has a lot of old school in it. Maybe he’s just telling his new hometown that he honors its past, too? After all, Levi’s jeans were founded in San Francisco. Either way, people are amused at the pic and the pose. Some former fans pointed out that Durant seemed to have been wearing those same jeans in games 5, 6, and 7 of the Western Conference Finals last year, when he couldn’t help advance a Thunder team that was up 3 games to 1.
