I was watching Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals at the crib Wednesday night while working on some stuff on the laptop. The TV was muted — I have concentration issues at my advanced age — but I noticed that OKC star Kevin Durant mouthed what appeared to be a verbal obscenity to teammate Dion Waiters after KD sank a jumper in the second quarter.
Check it out for yourself.
The Lasik surgery from 2009 has held up pretty well and while I’m not claiming to be a lip reader here, it’s looks rather obvious that Durant said something that rhymes with “Buck two” to Waiters before playfully bumping him as they walked over to the Thunder bench for a timeout.
Tell us how you really feel, KD. It all appeared to be good-natured ribbing from a veteran teammate to a youngster. Durant in a pretty candid moment was cool to see. Dude was always a great guy at Texas but over the last couple of seasons, we’ve been him let his hair down a bit and show us a different side of of his personality, which is not a bad thing, by the way. I love to get the uncensored side to these athletes outside of the usual pressers and postgame interviews.
Shoutout to the TNT cameras for capturing a funny moment from what’s shaping up to be a great series.
Those TV guys never miss a beat, huh?
Too bad the refs can’t spot a traveling violation.
