Durant rant

Turns out the Web site running a rant by possible Sonics No. 2 draft pick Kevin Durant on the WNBA is not actually Durant, according to his agent. The player’s representatives have asked that the post be removed immediately. The negative spewing has already stirred up emotions on various message boards and turned some who had a fleeting interest in the NBA sour toward Durant.
The post made remarks like, “I hope I make enough money in my lifetime to buy the WNBA and shut it down.” (FYI, Durant could feasibly purchase the league with his first year’s paycheck). And that, “Diana Taurasi I would block yo [sic] shot so hard.” The post also had Durant’s smiling face mug shot beside it.
I checked it out originally because Durant attended the Storm’s loss against the Shock and I wanted his opinion on a couple of questions. I’ve never read a comment about the league from him and will hopefully have another chance this week to talk to him, if drafted by the Sonics. He was off limits that night because he had been giving a lot of interviews. We’ll see what the real Durant says.
