Willie Mays gave Kevin Durant first pitch advice before Giants game

If Kevin Durant breaks out an over-the-shoulder catch playing for the Warriors this season, we’ll know who coached him.

Durant — who signed with Golden State this summer — threw out the first pitch when the Cardinals visited the Giants Sunday. He got some pregame advice from one of the greatest to ever play the game, Willie Mays.

Then KD got in a little practice.

The results? A strike.

After that, the Giants promptly went out and were shut out by the Cardinals (two teams in the middle of the wild card chase). So maybe Durant doesn’t get invited back for a while.
