(SP) – Kevin Durant may be one-and-done with the Golden State Warriors. After winning a championship in his first season in the Bay Area, the sharpshooter is looking to join the most dominant team on the globe: the Harlem Globetrotters.
“I’m always going to weigh my options and consider where the best place to win is,” Durant confirmed after Golden State wrapped up its defeat of the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games. “We obviously have a very good team here. But the Globetrotters literally never lose. I really think I can help them get better.”
Durant says he has a wide array of trick shots he believes would fight nicely with Harlem’s style of play.
“Well, I’m basically 7-feet tall and have the arms of an 8-footer,” he said. “So I’m capable of doing all kinds of trick shots. Like, I can just stand under the basket, reach up and place the ball in the hoop. How many humans can do that?”
The Globetrotters say they are definitely interested in adding Durant to the roster.
“We’re always looking to improve our team and Kevin is a great player,” said Globetrotters head coach Sweet Lou Dunbar. “Our only concern is that we want someone who is committed to the organization. We can win with or without him, so we don’t want to add a guy who is always just looking out for what’s best for him. We want high character people to dump buckets of confetti on officials.”
