Kevin Durant: “I was just joking around with the Servant thing”. Said to call him Kevin or KD.

Good news everybody! Kevin Durant was just joking about giving himself that stupid nickname. Earlier this week on the BS Report, Durant told Bill Simmons that he wanted to be called “The Servant.” (You can watch below, starting at the 8-minute mark.) Everybody freaked out because…
A.) It was a stupid name
B.) It wasn’t the stupid name that they wanted to call him.
Luckily, Durant says that he was joking. So we can go back making up stupid nicknames for a guy who is very commonly known by his initials who also happens to be the only famous person with the last name “Durant.” Keep working on those punny nicknames though. They’re all great ideas.
