U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin, now the Republican gubernatorial nominee, met Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant on Thursday at a Capitol Hill event to promote nutrition.
Said Fallin, “He’s tall.”
Durant, a native of Washington DC whose family still lives here, was asked by Wisconsin congressman whether he had any interest in playing “here.”
“The Wizards?” Durant said, scowling and shaking his head.
“Knicks!” a Capitol Hill staffer yelled.
“Bulls!” another countered.
Durant just signed an $87 million extension with the Thunder.
Maybe Fallin can get him a tax cut.
