Was Rihanna interaction personal highlight? Kevin Durant: ‘Oh, my gosh, more than that’

4 Comments

Kevin Durant had one special NBA Finals.

The Warriors star won his first championship, outplayed LeBron James to win (and deserve) Finals MVP and stared down Rihanna after making a 3-pointer.

Don’t lose sight of the importance of that last one.

Josh Peter of USA Today:

Durant said the Rihanna dustup — Durant appeared to stare her down after he hit a late three-pointer in Game 1 — was a personal highlight during the Finals.

“Oh, my gosh, more than that,’’ he said.

Durant has a long-standing infatuation with Rihanna, a noted LeBron fan:

Hopefully the fact that she didn’t yell “brick!” doesn’t ruin the moment for him. They’ll always have the stare-down.
