Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook reveal their NBA backup plans

Wednesday November 4th, 2015

The NBA is now in full swing and the league has three marquee mid-week matchups on national television with the Knicks visiting the Cavaliers and the Warriors hosting the Clippers on Wednesday, followed by the Thunder taking on the Bulls on Thursday.

The league sent out questionnaires to some of the teams involved in these matchups to find out a little more about the players and the answers they got back are definitely surprising.

Russell Westbrook revealed his love of tennis and Kevin Durant mentioned his passion for photography, adding that he aspire to be a director if he weren't in the league.

As much as we all enjoy watching Westbrook and Durant play basketball, wouldn’t you love to see Russell take on Rafa Nadal and Kevin Durant towering above the other nominees at the Oscars?

Other highlights from the survey include Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams, who reveals he would take up dairy farming if not for the NBA, and admits he listens to Ed Sheeran. Meanwhile, the Knicks who took the quiz all named Carmelo Anthony as their most fashionable teammate, except for Cleanthony Early, who picked Cleanthony Early as the most stylish.

The Knicks-Cavaliers (8 p.m.) and Clippers-Golden State (10:30 p.m.) games can be seen on ESPN on Wednesday, Thunder-Bulls (8 p.m.) will appear on TNT on Thursday night.
