One of the greatest lies ever told in American sports history is that Kevin Durant stands 6-foot-9. He's clearly a lot taller than that, and despite mounting evidence to the contrary, the man has never admitted it. He sort of admitted it last season in passing, but it wasn't a true confession.
How are we supposed to teach our children the virtues of truth telling when Durant's entire physical existence is a fabrication?
Our pleas for truth have finally been heard by the man they call the Slim Reaper, and Durant has admitted to his crimes against humanity. Speaking with KNBR's Bob Fitzgerald, KD copped to we've all known for years: He's a legitimate 7-footer.
"Since I love you guys so much, I was recorded at 6-10 and three quarters with no shoes," Durant said. "So with my shoes on, I'm seven feet."
"So the 6-9 thing, we've got to put that in the past?" Fitzgerald asked.
"Yeah, I just like messing with people," Durant said. "They always ask me so much, so yeah, I just like messing with them."
There you have it, folks. Kevin Durant is no longer a serial liar. He's just been messing with us.
