REPORT: Kevin Durant Can’t Palm an NBA Basketball

Over the past few years, we’ve got to see Kevin Durant hoop up close, one thing that we didn’t notice and were surprised to learn is that KD can’t palm an official NBA basketball.

During Thunder media day, Durant revealed that he is unable to palm the ball. The reigning league MVP is one of the most freakish athletes in NBA history, he is nearly 7-feet tall and his wingspan is even longer, you’d think his hands are big enough to palm a basketball.

As per The Oklahoman:

During his photo sessions, Kevin Durant upon request informed multiple photographers that he cannot palm a basketball. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Each time he was asked to grip the ball with one hand and pose for a picture, Durant quickly, and almost sheepishly, declined with that succinct explanation.

“No, I can’t,” Durant, with a slight chuckle, again admitted. “I can’t. It’s nothing I can control. You know?”

He chuckled again.

“I don’t know what else to say,” he added.
