NBA players have said some really dumb stuff on Twitter, and it often comes back to bite them in the ass. Kevin Durant made an interesting claim regarding Scarlett Johansson six and a half years ago that one might think he’d come to regret.
Back in 2011, KD fired off this gem of a tweet about ScarJo:
Scarlett johanneson I will drink ur bath water…#random
— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) January 17, 2011
Durant was 23 years old then, still playing with a future MVP in Russell Westbrook and a future two-time MVP runner-up in James Harden on … what team did they all used to play on again? … oh yes, the Oklahoma City Thunder.
In other words, he’s sitting pretty.
Which might explain why, after finally learning how to actually act on Twitter, he’s still standing by that old tweet.
On the Bill Simmons Podcast, the host asked Durant a reader question—basically, is Scarlett Johansson aware of the tweet?
“I hope she was aware of it,” Durant said. “It is strange now because it made me look crazy, but now it made me look real cool because I would. I actually love Scarlett Johansson, and I would do that. And she’s single now from what I heard.”
Shoot your shot, mate.
