We played pickleball with Kevin Durant. It went viral x2.

Sorry professor, but I won't be in attendance tonight.

At around noon on Monday, just after sending out our latest issue of The Dink Newsletter, I got a text: "I think we're playing with KD"

Say no more.

Fast forward and I'm teaching Kevin Durant optimal court positioning and the significance of a third shot drop. "Ahh, strategy," he said. Yup, strategy.

Pros Dekel Bar, Stefan Auvergne, Lina Padegimaite, DJ Young, Brandon Nsekpong were in the mix and put on a show for the 2 time NBA champ.

Here's the full video, which has since been picked up and shared by Sportscenter, Bleacher Report, The Score, House of Highlights and the list goes on.

He's not the only NBA player playing pb, though. And he's definitely not the last.
