Wednesday at 1:12 PM, I observed that this site had gone a full week without mentioning Kevin Durant in an article
If you've read us for any amount of time, you understand this is a big milestone.
Less than 30 minutes later, I sent out this tweet on my personal account, which I THOUGHT was a joke

CONFESSION: Yes, I live to make light of every single twist and turn in this bizarre saga, solely to exploit that small part of you that still clings to this hope for my own personal enjoyment and getting you to read about it. I am a monster.
But then, less than 17 minutes after that tweet, Kevin Durant posted this on Twitter
