The night before Game 6 of the 2014 Thunder-Clippers series in May, Durant went to a bible study at a church he helped found in Los Angeles. Watson happened to be speaking at the church that night. “He heard me talk about the bible and about family life, so we interacted,” Watson said. “Then I said, ‘hey, why don’t you give me your shoes after the game? It’d be funny.'” Watson immediately regretted the request. “As soon as I said it, I was like “‘if somebody did that to me at The Masters, I would be so mad,'” Watson said. “But I guess if it’s the right person.” Little did Watson know, Durant took him seriously, walking right up to him after the game and handing him the shoes on the court.
