Kevin Durant Gets a Rick James Thigh Tattoo

Golden State Warriors Introduce Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant is just one of the many athletes who stirred up a buzz on social media this offseason.  He must be absolutely thrilled that 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has taken the heat off of him with his recent controversy.

After squandering away a 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference Finals in June to the Golden State Warriors, free agent Kevin Durant bolted from the OKC Thunder to join those same Warriors. Durant pretty much knew he would be booed for his decision by fans around the league, so he made sure to get some cheers first as he won Gold for USA at the Rio Olympics.

After Rio, Durant is clearly feeling himself, because after getting a tattoo of rapper Tupac earlier in the summer, he proceeded to get a thigh tattoo of Rick James as well.
