Kevin Durant still not doing anything

On Tuesday morning, we saw some posts on social media and some discussion on morning television about Kevin Durant saying something controversial about having nothing to do in Oklahoma City.

Then we found the YouTube video from the episode of TMZ where they played the clip of the TMZ reporter asking him questions about Oklahoma City. Durant’s response was clearly half-hearted and not sincere. He looked to be running from the cameras more than anything.

Then, Darnell Mayberry blogged about it by Tuesday afternoon, linking to the video (which has since been removed from YouTube). Darnell’s take?

It’s time for folks in Oklahoma to lose the inferiority complex. Some people already are making this into a big deal. It’s not. This is a great state with great people.

He writes much more. I recommend reading it.

Then Darnell had a full article for NewsOK and The Oklahoman. That’s worth a read, as well.

Then on Wednesday morning, Kevin Durant had this post on Twitter:

Currently doing Nothing in Washington,DC

That made me laugh.

And all of it made for some interesting reading on Tuesday. For more, check out NewsOK’s ‘know it’ page on Kevin Durant, where we have all this stuff, plus Durant’s own blog feed on the page.

But what’s even more fun is this YouTube video of Kevin Durant in a playground game recently:
