What happens when an ESPN host questions Durant's heart?

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

Thunder nation is a bit sad this week, having dropped their first two games following the All-Star break, both at home, and not looking great in the process. One guy who IS having a great week is Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard, who torched the Warriors for 51 in a rout over the champs, and followed it up with 30 to beat the Jazz, and now has Portland sitting 7th in the West, and improbably, getting as high as #5 might not be out of the question.

Anyway, Thunder fans know all to well (painfully well) that Dame is great, and he furthered his reputation following this bit of ESPN nonsense:

Yes, I know. I know. Caveat Emptor. But still. It's a slow news day, and we need some cheering up.

Dame steps up.

I suppose the entire thing is doubly funny because it was only 2 years ago during Durant's MVP assault on the entire league when fans were clamoring to have this as Durant's alter ego:

Which, I suppose then is still technically correct since Death doesn't have a heart, so...goodness, what a stupid time to be alive.

Anyway, thanks, Lillard! We look forward to seeing you again on March 14th.
