Since I am am technically “tapering” for the half and cannot engage in strenuous physical activity, I am watching the Houston Rockets and the OKC Thunder exercise for me. Don’t tell anyone, but I am rooting against the home team. The Rockets organization ruined my childhood (long story).
Really, I am here to see Kevin Durant. He is such a nice boy. A boy whose mom clearly raised him right. A boy who quietly donates $1M to OKC tornado victims. A boy who is a UT alum! He is a beacon of hope in a league saturated with players who tattoo “Chosen 1” on their backs. If I had a daughter and KD was her prom date, I’d tell her, “I approve of this prom date, daughter.”
