THE "BRAND" OF DURANT VS BOSH?
Written by: Craig Shelton
"I'm not a 'punk'. He's on a good team now, so he thinks he can talk a little bit. There's a lot of fake tough guys in this league, and he's one of them".
Oklahoma City super star, Kevin Durant, is the NBA's "baby Jesus" these days. Or should I say this era's "swell guy" , Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Derick Jeter, Tiger Woods (okay, maybe not so much Tiger these days?). Or might I be better served to reach back for an Ice Cube reference and warn Durant not to get too chippy out on the court and risk damaging the growing appeal of the Kevin Durant brand? You see Kevin, you have to remember that as Ice Cube warned us, "they'll have a new n*gger next year".
|KEVIN DURANT & RICK BARNES|
Heres a few things the Kevin Durant "brand" should remember:
#1. Remember you're an NBA superstar and YOU CAN'T FIGHT!
#2. Remember that you're Kevin Durant which means three things:
A. You're tall.
B. You're rich.
C. AND YOU CAN'T FIGHT!
#3. Remember, image building is a slow methodical process, but image destruction usually comes in at a God-speed clip.
If I were to have one request granted by Kevin Durant, it would be to have Durant promise me that if he ever decides to go Kermit Washington on Chris Bosh's nose, please do so when Jeff Van Gundy is calling the game. I just have to be witness to NBA history if the NBA's version of Peyton Manning goes Mike Tyson on Chris Bosh, and Jeff Van Gundy has the call. That would be classic!
|Ahhhh...that would be Van Gundy on the floor hanging on for his life!|
