Kevin Durant has never been quite so famously fawned over by a fan sitting courtside as, say, fellow NBA superstars LeBron James and Stephen Curry have, but that didn’t stop the latecomer to the Golden State Warriors’ dynasty from laying one on a fan sitting as close as one can get to the action on Thursday night.
Late in the third quarter of a win over the lowly Dallas Mavericks, a Devin Harris pass found not a player but the forehead of a courtside fan, Peggy Mizono, according to ESPN.
Durant responded by joining rookie Jordan Bell in checking on her. Then KD kissed her.

Klay Thompson so expertly explained the the real issue here: “It doesn’t feel good when a basketball comes at your head.”
Anyway, with Stephen Curry still sidelined, Durant took over, dropping 36 points on 15-of-23 shooting to go with 11 boards, seven assists, and two blocks in the 112-97 victory.
