His basic humanity was on display last night. When a woman sitting courtside got beaned in the head with an errant pass, Durant was quick to come over and console her with a kiss.
“She got hit pretty hard,” he said after the game. “I saw when he threw the pass, I was like, ‘Oh, this is going straight for her face.’ It hit her pretty hard and she had glasses on. So I’m sure that hurt. I just wanted to come over there because she didn’t want to open her eye. She thought she had a cut on her eye. So I told her it’s all good and gave her a kiss. Hopefully she’s alright.”
The NBA: come for the incredible athleticism. Stay for the rampant smooching.
Also, what are the odds we get a piece calling the kiss “problematic” before noon? Feels like an even-money proposition in late 2017.
