My 2 Cents: KD is Not Nice?

Posted: Updated:

I guess it was just a matter of time.

Kevin Durant, the guy who's protective of his good guy image, has tattoos under his jersey, wears a dorky backpack and nerdy glasses.

Reads his Bible.

The guy moms and grandmothers loved, got kicked out of a game for yelling at a referee.

Sweet Kevin Durant, just below the surface, is a junkyard dog.

That's what Thunder TV announcer Brian Davis calls the snarling KD after he humiliates his opponents with one of his jackhammer dunks.

He is a relentless competitor, and although he has shown grace in defeat, I have sensed over the last 5 or 6 games, his expectations of himself and those around him, including the referees, are escalating.

A lot of people were stunned when he was ejected last week, AND didn't apologize for it.

It played right into Nike's ad campaign that Kevin Durant is not nice.

He is though, mad as he was, on his way to the locker room, he still high fived kids hanging over the railing.

Still I spent about 10 minutes with Kevin Durant back in October, a one on one interview, he was polite, but I could tell then he'd changed, he's grown up, focused, sure of himself, and the rest of the NBA had better watch out.
