You wouldn’t think there’s a chance Kevin Durant could be as smooth off the court as he is on it — because that bar is set so high! But Durant has been a superstar long enough that he is as cool at the microphone as he is from the free throw line. That is to say, KD is unable to be knocked off his game.
Even when a prankster like retired Late Night king David Letterman poses as Basketball Dave to pepper the hoops superstar with absurd questions, Durant is cool as the other side of the pillow! What is the SECRET of your nickname. C’mon, tell us, why do they call you “KD”?
But you can’t rattle Durant. He plays a great straight man in this comic pairing, explaining patiently that is first name is KEVIN and his last name is DURANT, hence K.D.
Durant doesn’t even blink when Letterman asks if he’ll give 90 or 95 percent this year, choosing the 110 percent option. He doesn’t even say: Enough of this nonsense!
Durant looks even smoother here posing with fellow NBA legend Magic Johnson. “Two of the GOATS,” reads one perfect comment on the pic.
As for the actual PLAYING of basketball. KD is ready as can be. See below:
