Reporters shoot air balls, too.
Luckily for one, Kevin Durant was there to help bail him out.
During Durant’s press conference following the Warriors’ 120-117 win over the Wizards on Friday night, a reporter began to ask the forward a question before freezing up and passing.
“Kevin, you had, um – sorry, I forgot my question,” he said. “I won’t waste your time. It happens.”
Durant was taken aback before joking with him.
“Damn,” Durant said, cracking a smile. “Hey, I feel you, dog. It’s all good. I forgot a couple plays tonight.”
Durant is often cold and critical toward the media, but all it took was a minor slip-up to get the Warriors forward to show his more empathetic side.
We’ll see how long that lasts.
