Kevin Durant explains why he drank through his towel (video)


One of the strangest moments of this NBA season: Kevin Durant drinking through a towel during the Warriors’ win over the 76ers on Saturday.

What was he doing?

Mindi Bach of ABC 7:


I’ve been having the towel over my face to kind of absorb the sweat for a while. But I kind of forgot at that moment that I had it on, and I was thirsty. So, hey, it worked, though. I had a nice swig on that one.

Good for Durant for answering with a smile. That’s a much better way to handle topics not directly related to how he’s playing basketball this season.
