Apparently, “Durantula” has run its course.
In this latest installment of Nike Basketball’s #SummerIsSerious, KD suffers quite the moment of public embarrassment upon finding out his nickname is “Kevin.” As in Kevin “Kevin” Durant.
We all let KD down, y’all. The man needs a nickname and my apologies to Jalen Rose, but “Iceberg Slim” just isn’t sticking. And to think, all this happened while shooting a commercial for his KD VI ‘NYC 66’ (releasing August 17) in honor of that special day two summers ago when the good kid from a mad city made Rucker Park his own personal house of horrors.
You win some and lose some. Even “Kevin” isn’t immune to the life lesson.
Bonus: Turn away, Thunder fans. Durant and James Harden sit down with Grantland‘s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose to discuss life a year after “the trade.” Through so many words, they both miss the hell out of each other.
