Kevin Durant Received Text From Former President Barack Obama After Finals Win

Kevin Durant Discusses Obama Texts and Rihanna Fandom Barack Obama Sent Kevin Durant Congratulations Text After Game 5
Pammachio Corsino | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:57

Kevin Durant, who was the missing piece and won the championship he craved, was named Finals MVP.

While well wishes and praise for Durant were surely coming in fast after Game 5, KD received one correspondence that stood out from the rest - a text of congratulations from former President Barack Obama.

Appearing on Bill Simmons' podcast, Durant revealed that Obama was among those to congratulate him on his first title.


Durant: "Obama. He sent a text through somebody to get to me". "Your defense was really good", but went on to admit that even after taking home the top honors in the league, getting a message from Obama was still a surprise. "I wasn't expecting that". In 2014, Durant was the recipient of a much warmer greeting than the dude in line ahead of him when the then-President visited a Team USA workout.

You can listen to the exchange through the link below, with excerpted conversation starting around the 43:30 mark.
