Recently, Durant was a guest on the “Out of Office” podcast where he spoke about his physique and whether or not it would translate to other sports. When asked which sport he could have envisioned himself playing, KD noted that he would have loved to play football and he thinks he would have been good at it. In fact, Durant believes he would have been a solid wide receiver.
“I could play football. I can be a wideout at least. There’s wideouts that’s 6 feet, 170 [pounds]. … All go routes,” Durant said. Considering just how skinny Durant is, it’s hard to imagine him playing a sport like football where you are constantly getting laid out, although we’re sure Durant would have trained for something like that.
Either way, it would certainly be fun to think about KD as a football player, although it’s clear that basketball his true calling.
