OKC Thunder: Kevin Durant pays visit to San Francisco Giants game

By JANIE McCAULEY, AP Baseball Writer Published: April 10, 2013

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant spent his basketball off day at the San Francisco Giants' ballpark on a spectacular Bay Area afternoon, signing autographs and meeting players.

He insists he can learn from watching the best in another sport.

Durant, in town to face the playoff-bound Golden State Warriors on Thursday was especially eager to watch reigning NL MVP and batting champion Buster Posey because “I just like his intensity.”

The NBA's second-leading scorer, Durant attended the Giants' series finale against the Colorado Rockies with teammate Nick Collison and other representatives of the team. Durant also posed for a photo with World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval.

The 6-foot-9 Durant is a former high school first baseman who lacked a power stroke.
