New, comments

For some reason Mark Wahlberg thinks he can convince Kevin Durant that his hometown is better than Durant's.

Even though Kevin Durant's free agency is still over a year and a half away, people will not stop talking about it, and it's not just deranged Wizards fans now either. TMZ talked to Mark Wahlberg about the new court he built inside his mansion and he mentioned that Kevin Durant has already played on his new court, and shocker, Wahlberg then started talking about how great Kevin Durant would look in Celtics green.

Of course, there's almost no chance that Mark Wahlberg is going to be able to convince Kevin Durant that Boston is a better place to live than Washington D.C., but we must say we were impressed by his pitch to Durant. Here's an exclusive look at Mark Wahlberg's chat with Kevin Durant:

And now: Mark Wahlberg talks to NBA players

Hey! I'm Mark Wahlberg. You guys know me. Let's go talk to some NBA players

Hey, Kevin Durant. How's it goin'? I like your game, it looks really great. So you're MVP, right? What's that all about? [Durant just stares ahead, oblivious] Okay, well it was great to meet you. Say hi to your mother for me, okay? Now I'm gonna talk to Jimmy Butler

Hey, Jimmy Buckets. What's goin' on? You make game-winning threes in preseason games, I like that. You eat cookies, right? I produce Entourage. [Butler just stares ahead, oblivious] Okay, talk to you later, Buckets. Now I'm gonna talk to LeBron. 

Hey, LeBron. How's it hangin'? A lot of people wanna beat you, but I just wanna talk to you, okay? We should do a film together, whaddya think? [LeBron looks around uninterested] Hey, LeBron, I'm not joking around, okay? This is the real thing, I mean this could be huge! [LeBron continues to look uninterested] All right, well, think about it. Say hi to your mother for me, alright? Now I'm gonna talk to James Harden.

Hey, Harden. It's good to see you. I like your beard. I had a beard like that in The Perfect Storm. Did you see that movie? [Harden stares ahead oblivious] Did ya, did ya see The Perfect Storm, Harden? [Harden still stares ahead blankly] Say hi to your mother for me, okay?
