With Lockout Dragging On, Kevin Durant Crashes A Local Flag Football Game

Tuesday November 1st, 2011

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant crashed an Oklahoma State flag football game Monday after being invited by a fan on Twitter.

“I had soooo much fun at Oklahoma st playing flag football! Shoutout to my new buddy @groverbey for inviting me! I threw 4 tds and had 3 ints!!” Durant tweeted last night following the game.

@groverbey, otherwise known as George Overbey of Oklahoma State, invited Durant when the NBA scoring champ sent out a tweet asking if anyone was playing flag football in the area. “Only if you bring your A game,” Overbey responded to Durant via tweet prior to last night's game. “Yes for real! Come early and hangout, go over some plays.”
