The Idea That Kevin Durant Helped An Ambulance Navigate Traffic Has To Be The Most Non-Sensical Thing I've Heard In My Entire Life
YardBarker- “We were stuck in traffic, so pretty much cars surrounding us all over,” Peter Radford explained. “All of a sudden, I see a silver Ferrari or a silver sports car pull in behind us. “I see this Ferrari has it’s flashers on. It’s actually making way for us to get through and navigate all the traffic."
“Once we actually get through all the traffic, this silver Ferrari comes over to the side and waves to my partner,” Radford recalled. “And my partner goes ‘Do you have any idea who that is?’ And of course I’m clueless. ‘That’s Kevin Durant.’
“He waves to me. I just thought that was so cool that someone like Kevin Durant would take the time to assist this emergency vehicle getting to an emergency call.”
“I saw the ambulance from behind me, and it was kind of slow in front of me, and I moved over,” the Thunder star said. “I said, ‘I’m just going to follow the ambulance so I can get through traffic real quick.’ So I moved over. I can’t take full credit for that.”
When Kevin Durant and the oh-so-lucky members of his brain trust sit down this offseason I want them to remember this specific moment. The day that an entire city was praising his selfless efforts to follow an active ambulance through traffic. Knighting him as some sort of hero for pulling up behind a medical vehicle that I'm assuming had it's sirens on and using the flashers on his Ferrari to "guide" them through the safest path to salvation.
For a guy that has a seemingly contentious relationship with reporters there is no better city than Oklahoma City. After all, Oklahoma City is the only NBA destination that could turn a story about Kevin Durant using the presence of an emergency vehicle to get home a couple minutes earlier into a story about Kevin Durant valiantly parting bumper-to-bumper traffic out of the goodness of his heart. Pretty tough to complain about how you are covered in the media when the media is sucking your dick for the most commonest of courtesy in letting an ambulance have the right of way. The idea that the roadway was being cleared on behalf of Kevin Durent may be the most asinine thing I have ever heard. Cars were pulling over because that's what cars are supposed to do when they hear a siren blaring. Kevin Durant wasn't the one that caused that, he was the one that was trying to take advantage of that. All the power to him because I would likely do the same thing, I just wouldn't expect to get my proverbial ass patted for it on the evening news. He might as well just sign that long term extension now. If Kevin Durant is dead set on living a life without scrutiny then staying in a place that treats basic human decency as an act that is worthy of being carried through town upon the shoulders of strangers is a no brainier.
