Poor Kevin Durant. Arguably the most humble susperstar in all of sports was reduced to tears after his Oklahoma City Thunder were beaten by the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals last night — and then endure the horror of watching Lebron James, Chris Bosh and D. Wade celebrate with those LMFAO jackasses. Now he’s got to deal with some jackass from the 80s hitting him with a lawsuit over a nickname.
Durant was sued today in Federal Court by a guy named Mark Durante — a guitarist who, according to the lawsuit, was a big deal in the 80s … playing with Public Enemy, The Aliens, The Next Big Thing, and (our favorite) The Revolting Cocks.
TMZ obtained a copy of the lawsuit, in which Durante says he adopted the name “Durantula” for his “on-stage and performance persona” — and has used it to market “music, recordings, apparel, t-shirts, guitars, and related merchandise.”
Perhaps Lil Wayne hit Durant with some sort of voodoo hex or something?
