#KD2DC is a phenomenon, but we honestly had no idea it had reached the point where it's become a worldwide talking point.
This week, Kevin Durant has been promoting Nike in various locations throughout Europe. Wednesday, he made a stop in Berlin and managed to sneak in a selfie with Bayern Munich defender Jérôme Boateng.
Kevin Durant's stop in Berlin was covered by several outlets, including El Mundo Deportivo, a Spanish sports outlet. Here is the opening paragraph from their story on Durant's visit to Berlin (HT: Zach Harper):
Antes de asistir este jueves al Alemania-España del Eurobasket , Kevin Durant, alero de los Oklahoma City Thunders que podría fichar por los Washington Wizards, ha descubierto Berlín de la mano de Jérôme Boateng, futbolista del Bayern y nativo de la capital germana.
A Spanish website writes a story about Kevin Durant going to Germany and they mention the Wizards in the OPENING PARAGRAPH. Poor Kevin Durant can't even take a trip to Europe without someone bringing up his hometown team.
Here's a quick and dirty translation:
Before he attends this Thursday's Germany-Spain game at Eurobasket, Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Kevin Durant, who could sign with the Washington Wizards, found Berlin's Jérôme Boateng, a footballer for Bayern and native of the German capital.
It's probably not a great sign that even Spanish media thinks Kevin Durant could go back home next summer. Then again, it's not even most worrisome thing to come out of Durant's trip to Europe for Thunder fans. You see, after he chummed it up in Berlin on Wednesday with one of Bayern's best players, he was singing a different tune on Thursday:
Honored to have stepped out onto the grass at Parc des Princes in the new Paris-Saint Germain jersey #ALWAYSMORE pic.twitter.com/UihewxEVVk— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) September 10, 2015
Yep. If you're shocked by how quickly Kevin Durant changed allegiances here, you might be in a for a bit of a surprise in July 2016.
