Last night, it was not “KD you suck” that got Kevin Durant’s attention and made him walk slowly in the direction of the heckler, but rather that classic barb that gets under everyone’s skin: “KD! You cheesebutt!”
At least that’s what Deadspin hears, aided by some important context clues (i.e. Kevin Durant indeed being a cheesebutt). TMZ Sports, which posted the video, captioned it to suggest the heckle was a shot at KD’s alma mater—“UT’s butt!”—which is just so mundane in comparison. There are a lot of choices in this life, and to a large degree these choices determine our happiness. Today I am choosing to believe in cheesebutt.
