You don’t want to tinker with Kevin Durant.
You’ll satisfy the rage of his bodyguard– even if you’re one of his challengers during a game if you do.
During the Nets vs. Bucks contest Thursday night, Durant entered into a spat with Milwaukee forward P.J. Tucker. As the two players went at it, teammates and other staff surrounded them to break it up, but a guy clad in a security guard-type attire likewise signed up with the fray.
According to The Athletic, that guy was Durant’s bodyguard on the Nets’ payroll.
This incident between Durant and Tucker was simply a glorified shouting match. Still, the bodyguard wanted to ensure that Durant didn’t discover himself in any trouble with one of the peskiest and most physically undersized forwards in the league.
It should be excellent for Durant to have that type of personal protection available at all times, even when on the court. And the bodyguard showed excellent stopping method, pushing through the crowd to wall off Tucker from advancing any more on Durant.
The play was, maybe, one of the better box-outs that happened in the Brooklyn-Milwaukee game.
