Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant is something of an enigma. Despite being inarguably one of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game, he has a peculiar way of doing things and carrying himself.
Durant’s most notable odd quirk, obviously, is his thin skin. He is always beefing with someone, be it Z-list actors or ESPN commentators. Multiple people have tried to talk him out of being the way he is online, but it was to no avail.
Many attribute Durant’s very online-y nature to being a low-key introvert and having some sort of anxiety issues. That theory got an inadvertent boost this past week from Matt Sullivan, the author of “Can’t Knock the Hustle: Inside the Season of Protest, Pandemic, and Progress with the Brooklyn Nets’ Superstars of Tomorrow.”
During a recent appearance on “The Dan Le Batard Show,” Sullivan revealed that Durant is a big weed guy.
“He smokes even more weed than you would think,” Sullivan said.
Back in 2015, Durant opened his car door and weed fell out. It was never confirmed or denied who it belonged to, but now we know.
“I was at his house at one o’clock in the morning,” Sullivan continued. “The entire place just reeks. He doesn’t have a girlfriend. He doesn’t go on crazy vacations. He doesn’t do anything other than hoop. Like nothing. He’s boring as hell. So going out to him is just blazing.”
Does the weed smoking explain why Durant is the way he is? Not really. Does it provide a little bit of additional interesting insight into a fascinating person? Absolutely.
