When you’re a superstar in any professional sport, nicknames are all the rage. From King James to the Black Mamba, the NBA has had their fair share of them, even to the point that the association hosted a nickname jersey night this season between the Heat and the Nets. Kevin Durant, who is having a career year, has many nicknames — KD, Durantula, The Slim Reaper — but has come out in an interview with Bill Simmons saying that he prefers The Servant. When asked why, Durant explained that he likes to serve everyone, whether it be the fans, his teammates, the employees at the stadiums and God. Personally, I thought the Slim Reaper was clever, but Durant did not take a liking to it himself. A little joking never hurt anybody.
