Kevin Durant and LeBron James are two of the hardest working players in the league. They’re also different, at least to most of us. Durant’s the humble superstar while LeBron is seen as an ego driven super-duper-star.
But the two got together to work out in LeBron’s hometown about a month ago. The game’s two top small forwards, pushing each other through weight training, running on a football field and then in the gym. The Bible says iron sharpens iron and I think that applies to basketball too. You’re only going to get better working out with your top competition.
Someone actually tweeted KD saying that fans don’t want to see him hanging out with LeBron because they’re total opposites. Which is incredibly stupid. First off, the perception of LeBron is completely overblown. It’s not like he’s some evil dictator or something. He’s just a basketball player and truly, he hasn’t done anything all that horrible. There’s absolutely no reason to question KD for working out with LeBron. In fact, I hope it’s something to continues.
Favorite part though: Right at the beginning when KD smells his shirt. “Did I wear this one already? (Sniff.) Nope, we’re good.”
