Kevin Durant meets Muhammad Ali, posts photo on Instagram (Photo)

Kevin Durant is currently embroiled in a battle with LeBron James for the title of best player in the NBA. Is there a chance, with his career being so young still, that Durant could one day be considered the best of all-time to play the game? Sure, but that might be a stretch. However, recently, Durant did meet literally THE greatest of all-time, Muhammad Ali, and he posted the photo to Instagram to prove it.

That right there is a picture that every male athlete wants to have hanging on their mantle, not just floating around on the internet. Scratch that, not just every male athlete, but every male–period.

The quote that Durant used for the caption is more than likely some wise words he received from the former world champ and unquestioned greatest fighter to ever live.

Those are words that Durant can take with him through the rest of the NBA season as he and his Oklahoma City Thunder team chase that elusive NBA Championship.
