It took Kevin Durant 10 years to reach the NBA’s crowning achievement, and the four-time scoring champion got to experience all the unbelievable moments that are a part of winning a championship – including getting a text from a former president.
So what did Barack Obama say to the newly minted champion?
“Congrats,” Durant told Bill Simmons on his podcast. “Your defense was really good, which was random … and he told me to enjoy it, have some fun, typical stuff. I wasn’t expecting that.”
Durant and his teammates will get to revel in the championship afterglow Thursday, when the Warriors will celebrate their title during a parade in Oakland. It’ll be just another unforgettable moment for the perennial All-Star.
