David Letterman on Monday crashed the Brooklyn Nets media day, and superstar Kevin Durant seemed to be unimpressed with the silly questions.
Video posted to social media showed the former late-night host pretending to be a reporter, making foolish (but hilarious) inquires of Durant, such as asking why people refer to him as “KD.”
“My first name is Kevin, with a K and my last name is Durant, with a D,” said a stone-faced Durant. Whether Durant was in on the joke is unclear. Another question faux reporter Letterman asked was exactly what percent of effort the basketball star was going to give in the upcoming season. Durant replied, toneless, “One hundred and 10.”
The moment set Twitter ablaze as some loved the gag because they recognized Letterman’s voice, while others, who did not realize it was the comic, were baffled that a reporter could be so clueless.
It is unclear why Letterman crashed the Nets media day. An Indianapolis native, Letterman notably roots for his hometown teams. A rep for Letterman did not immediately respond to a request for more information.
Durant will be playing his 14th season in the NBA. He was selected second overall by the Seattle SuperSonics, later Oklahoma City Thunder, in the 2007 draft. Durant won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors before moving on to the Nets.
