Kevin Durant talks Team USA, says Tony Allen toughest defender, more in twitter chat


Kevin Durant is sidelined for the NBA playoffs. Whether Russell Westbrook and the rest of the Thunder will be too remains to be seen tonight, but Durant most certainly will not play following a third surgery on his right foot this season.

Durant has got some time on his hands.

So he took to Twitter to answer fan questions on Wednesday. Here are some highlights.

Well played on the Team USA thing. That injury to Paul George freaked some people out, but nasty injuries can happen at the Drew League, or in workouts at the team facility, or in a league game, just about anywhere. It happens.

A bunch of people asked him about Durant college choices because… actually, I have no idea why. People are obsessed with their colleges.
