(Morning pals. Thank you for your support of DT. Back in Oklahoma. Feels good.)
First off, there are no words that can accurately sum up the loss of John Wooden. Yeah, he was fine basketball coach. The unquestioned greatest ever. But he wasn’t just the best with a clipboard. He led men. And he was undoubtedly one of the finest human beings this earth has ever seen. I hope he enjoys watching the Finals from above.
But here’s your cartoon. KD is in China promoting the new KDII. Here’s a picture of that shoe. (Notice the 30.1 on the back – neat.) Here’s a video from Reuters that even has a player dunking nearby KD in a pickup game. No, the tape was not confiscated. But Durant is really embracing the China tour and it looks like he’s pretty popular there. Also, this picture is awesome.
