Kevin Durant Addresses His “Controversies”

by Darnell Mayberry Published: September 30, 2011

I won’t waste your time with a lead-in or an unnecessary explanation from me. Kevin Durant spoon feeds you all you need to know. I’ll only add that while watching this video I couldn’t help but find it more than a little disturbing, if not ridiculous, that Durant even had to take the time to make this.

Think about the things he’s addressing for a second. How petty are they? A hat, tattoos and his feelings about the biggest rival of his alma mater? That’s not to say these things aren’t interesting or that they don’t shed light on who Durant is. They are and they do. But Durant is only addressing them because these are the things that have ruffled a few feathers. Professionally, it’s my job to pass it along. Personally, I’d politely ask that somebody sound the alarm when there’s real controversy.
