This past week, Kevin Durant’s PR team has been working overtime trying to rehaul the All-Star’s image since leaving the Thunder and going to the Golden State Warriors. First, he announced his presence on the Golden State Warriors subreddit and asked locals for suggestions on places he should go to visit and eat. Not only did he show up to respond to the comments and suggestions, he seemed like the down-to-earth guy that everyone fell in love with back in Seattle and Oklahoma City.
Apparently, he must have taken people up on their suggestions because all weekend Durant was out and about in the Bay Area, taking the BART, checking out record stores, and eating with the locals.
Then last night, at Kanye West‘s show in Oakland, Kevin Durant walked into the thick of the mosh pit with almost no security around him, rocking a hoodie, and wilding out.
I mean, OK, he had a couple of security guards. It is still Oakland, guys.
All joking aside, it’s nice to see that Durant’s got all of the Bay Area on his back. He’s going to need all of the support he can muster once he becomes a bigger villain than Lebron James when he left for Miami.
