Improbably, Kevin Durant’s official NBA height is listed at 6-foot-9, but the superstar has at last come clean.
Durant says he enjoys “messing with people” when it comes to his height.
Per CSN Bay Area:
Speaking to Bob Fitzgerald on KNBR, Durant put fact over fiction when answering the age-old question of how tall he really is. “Since I love you guys so much, I was recorded at 6’10” and three-quarters with no shoes, so with my shoes on I’m 7-feet,” Durant finally revealed.
So, why has Durant been listed at 6-foot-9 for so long?
“I just like messin’ with people. They just ask me so much… yeah, I just like messin’ with people.”
