Barack Obama Texted Kevin Durant After NBA Finals Victory

There is no doubt that Kevin Durant is still riding high off the emotions of winning his first NBA Championship against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

While there is still unconfirmed speculation that the Warriors will not visit the White House to shake hands with Donald, KD has had a Presidential encounter since taking home the Larry O’Brien trophy.

During his recent interview with Bill Simmons on The Ringer podcast, KD revealed that #44, Barack Obama, had sent him a congratulatory text already:

KD: “Obama. He sent a text through somebody to get to me,”

Simmons: “What’d he say?”

KD: “Congrats,’Your defense was really good, which was random … and he told me to enjoy it, have some fun, typical stuff. I wasn’t expecting that.”

You can listen to the interview in it’s entirety below.
