Durant smacks basketball into fan’s face
by Aditya C Joseph, USA TODAY
Kevin Durant “is the nicest guy in the NBA,” according to his new Foot Locker commercial. So why would he smack a basketball into a fan’s face?
To apologize, of course.
The Oklahoma City Thunder forward used his long arms to deflect a pass by the Phoenix Suns’ Luis Scola during Sunday’s 97-69 road win. But Durant miscalculated his angles. The ball smacked a fan right on the head.
Durant immediately ran over to make sure she was all right. She flung her hair aside and laughed. It was a wonderful moment.
The fan was sitting right next to a guy in a Durant jersey. (Yes, they were in Phoenix, but did you expect a Goran Dragic jersey?)
