KD Took Out A Page In The Local Paper To Thank The Warriors And Their Fans...In The Most Corny Way Possible
Let me start by saying that I am fully aware that the chances of Kevin Durant sitting around lining up letters in an effort to thank all worthy parties that helped him achieve the title that he preemptively won a year ago are slimmer than his stature. The last few sentences may have been a word-for-word quote, but the top was more than likely put together by some lazy intern with the personality of Klay Thompson.
That said, it is exactly the type of thing I would expect from someone that suffers as badly from a lack of swag as Kevin Durant. For instance, if KD were just a "diehard", bandwagon Warriors fan instead of their Finals MVP he would be the kid sitting in the crowd, proudly hoisting a sign that haphazardly spelled out E-S-P-N via the middle letters of some stupid, hackneyed slogan that he probably made up himself as if it were the most clever thing ever assembled.
I immediately cringed when I saw that full page ad from the 'San Francisco Chronicle'. I don't exactly think it's a coincidence that that very same expression mirrors the one I make when Kevin Durant tries to intimidatingly thump his chest after a made three, or gets snarky with the media that has been kissing his bony ass since he's came into the league. He may have a well deserved championship pedigree and a historic finals appearance under his belt, but - in my eyes - he'll always be just enough of a boob for the possibility of piss poor acronymity to exist.
