Kevin Durant eats really hot chicken wings and talks about life


You’ve seen Kevin Durant play basketball. You’ve seen him roast twerps on Twitter. Now see him do neither of those things and eat spicy stuff! Heck yes!

The NBA gets deserved credit for their prominent players’ seeming star power. We feel like we know them more closely as people than we do football players, baseball players, or fencers. They get out there. They talk to people, engage on social media and let people into their lives to a level maybe a grade or two shy of how I conducted myself on LiveJournal 12 years ago. That’s to be respected, I think, and thus we should give some respect to Kevin Durant.

When he left the Oklahoma City Thunder last year, there was significant displeasure. People called him cupcake and agitated over whether or not his joining the Warriors ruined basketball. If that were me, I’d find my own personal Winchester, have a cold pint of club soda, and wait however many years it’d take for this to blow over.

Durant went the opposite way. He went after people directly on Twitter, went on about 15 podcasts with Bill Simmons, and started his own YouTube channel. If people wanted to find things about Durant to be upset about, they didn’t need help. However, if people wanted to hear his voice and get a chance to understand why his personality led him down the path he chose, this gave them the chance. Durant at worst went from villain to complicated villain and at best went from basketball player who made a did something disagreeable to basketball person who made a personal decision.

But nuts to all that. We’re here to watch him shove spicy things in his face:

There are Q&A’s, Kevin Love comparisons, and sweat. He loves Beyonce and Magic Johnson. Rory McIlroy’s PGA Tour is a favorite video game. NBA2K may or may not have made him a better basketball player. LeBron knows his wine, and Draymond doesn’t know how to dress, and Twitter doesn’t know how to qualify a professional’s basketball ability.

As it turns out, Kevin Durant can handle spicy food pretty well. That’s the drama in the video, and I refuse to spoil it. Just make sure to pour some red chili flake on your tongue before watching this because it’s important to have a level of physical empathy.
