How did Kevin Durant, two-time scoring champ, NBA All-Star and global superstar in general choose to spend his Halloween? On campus at Oklahoma State playing some flag football.
Seriously. File another story under “KD is just about the coolest dude ever.” I think he’s just showing off now.
Early Monday, KD tweeted he was one bored basketballer and was in the mood for some flag football. “This lockout is really boring..anybody playing flag football in Okc..I need to run around or something!”
An OSU student, George Overbey, tweeted him back saying his team played at 10 p.m. KD responded, “Can I play?” (which is hilarious to me). He told KD to bring his “A” game. And here’s the crazy part: KD actually showed up. I would say I can’t believe it, but I totally can.
Durant made the two-hour drive to Stillyville and threw four touchdowns and had three interceptions. After the game, he tweeted: “I had soooo much fun at Oklahoma st playing flag football! Shoutout my new buddy @groverbey for inviting me! I threw 4 tds and had 3 ints!!”
That TD run remind you of anything? I had flashes of Vince Young.
At one point an OSU fan got KD to shout “OU sucks!” which of course instantly won over everyone watching. Which you might not be surprised but a solid crowd of something like 500 gathered to watch the game.
What can you say about it? Another feather in the cap of Durant and not because it was some marketing plan or PR ploy. It was just KD being KD. Super cool, as always.
