In addition to NBA MVP, we can now add “world-class flopper” to Kevin Durant’s basketball resume.
During the second quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Clippers and Thunder on Wednesday, Durant was trying to chase his man around a pick but ran into a wall named DeAndre Jordan. After losing JJ Redick, Durant decided to flop and act as if he had been zapped by a cattle prod.
Redick missed the shot anyhow, but something tells us KD may be hearing from the league for reasons other than them finding out where they should mail him his MVP trophy.
Durant’s reaction may have involved some acting, but either way, watching anyone move like this is captivating.
