NBA Rumors: Kevin Durant says nickname should be 'The Servant' (Video)

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is getting tired of the nicknames bestowed upon him.

He was never a big fan of the ‘Durantula’ moniker, but dealt with it. Little did he know how much worse they’d get (at least in his mind) as Durant rejected both ‘Iceberg Slim’ and ‘Slim Reaper’ nicknames, hinting he wasn’t a fan of either (he went as far as to say he hated Slim Reaper).

So the question begs – given Durant isn’t a fan of any nicknames given to him by the media or fans, what would he nickname himself?

The Servant.

Yep – that’s what he came up with and told Bill Simmons of ESPN. Why, you ask? Well, I’ll let Durant explain below, but he suggests because he’s always serving up his teammates, it would be a good nickname.

Well, it’s not the worst thing I’ve ever heard but I’m pretty sure there’s something better than that out there. And that would be a nickname far better saved for a point guard, not a league leader in scoring.
