Kevin Durant Plays Intramural Flag Football with Oklahoma State Students

Early Monday afternoon, KD tweeted something about being bored and wanting to play flag football. Immediately, an Oklahoma State student named George Overbey replied to KD with a intramural game invite. The next thing you know, the NBA’s leading scorer is down in Stillwater doing his best Michael Vick impersonation with a bunch of co-eds. Have you ever seen a 6’10″ quarterback before?

Kevin recorded 4 touchdowns as a QB and did his best Deion Sanders impersonation on defense by securing 3 interceptions.

    I love him. What a great, unpretentious guy!

    Man, THAT is an athlete. So far removed from the athletes of today who think themselves above everyone else. How often do you think you’d find Lebron playing a game of football with just anyone?

  • MarcusMaximus06

    I agree with a previous comment…how likely is it that you would see someone such as Lebron playing flag football with some college kids out of the blue? Not likely. Durant and the rest of the OKC team are true to their word in giving back to the community and interacting with their fans on a daily basis unlike so many others.

    [...] Despite his whirlwind summer of dropping tons of points onto the faces of every opponent he’s faced on the basketball court, Oklahoma City Thunder superstar forward Kevin Durant was bored. A simple tweet of, “This lockout is really boring..anybody playing flag football in Okc..I need to run around or something!” changed all that. [...]

    Wonder why KD wouldn’t go to Norman and play flag football? 

  • guest

    Because like he said he hates ou!

  • Josh_07

    maybe no one invited him to go play flag football at ou

  • Kyle_litaly_smith

    So I was a fan of Kevin before this, but now I freaking love this guy!  What a stud.  He just secured 25,000 plus fans here at OSU.

  • Rae0323

    No they did. I saw it on Twitter, he got invites from Norman, but he chose to come play right next door to where I live! :D

    Mr. Durant,
    Why not charge 5 bucks to watch you and LeBron play, and donate it all to charity (MS, for instance)?  Give your managers a nice PR bargaining chip at the table.  Challenge your other NBA cohorts to the same and the owners will have no choice.  Win-win?

  • william b weaver

    KD you are great ambassador for OKC , I know you have a lot of time on your hands right now and get alot of crazy request, I have a friend who has Cycial Cell and has five strokes he is one of your biggest fans and would  love to get a Autographed Photo of you, If you can help please contact me.

  • Seany Valdez

    Just shows how great Oklahoma fans are toward our biggest star in a long, long time. We give our hearts to Kevin and he gives back to us. Thank you for being such a role model to the kids, adults, and everyone in the NBA who forgets where they came from. Thunder Up!

    I started to reply to his tweet for fun and giggles” when you find something, swing my way and save me from boredom.” then I deleted it. Laughed the next morning when I read about it.

  • Ccarm727

    In a time where it’s SO easy to be cynical of professional stars, it is truly awesome to read about Kevin Durant. While I’m a Heat fan and hope we can turn it around and win this thing, if we have to lose, I couldn’t think of a better T-E-A-M to lose to than one led by Kevin Durant. Total class act and I wish him success in all that he does. I hope to see him draped in Red, White, & Blue singing God Bless America at the Olympics :-)

    I love Kevin Durant and most importantly, I love that he’s from the DMV. If I could get him into my classroom I do not know what I would do!
