NBA: ‘Dave from Basketball Digest’ grills Durant
A reporter at the Brooklyn Nets’ media day on Monday introduced himself as “Dave from Basketball Digest” and proceeded to ask Kevin Durant a question.
Dave from Basketball Digest then asked Durant, “Kevin, why do people call you K.D.?”
Dave from Basketball Digest turned out to be longtime latenight talk show host and interviewer extraordinaire David Letterman.
Durant played along for a bit: “My first name is Kevin with a K. My last name is Durant with a D.”
“This year, what percentage do you plan on giving on the court — 90, 95, 100, 110? What are we looking at?” Letterman said. Durant answered 110.
“They’ll let anybody in here,” Durant said after Letterman asked two more questions.
“Hey, I heard that,” Letterman said as he left the interview room.
