Sure Shot

They say a picture’s worth 1,000 words. But you only need a couple to win.


You all know we have serious love for Kevin Durant. And we definitely respect the job Coach K has done with Team USA. Not sure what to make of this recent photograph, though. Do you have any good ideas for how to caption it? If so, please let the world know.

Whoever writes the funniest caption will win a dope prize from our vault and see their name in Trash Talk next issue.

    Kevin Durant is led off the court by Coach K after literally being blinded by European body odor.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    In a bid to instill confidence in Durant’s leadership and utilize his scoring prowess, Coach K shows Kevin Durant where he ideally wants him to score the basketball;

    “essentially, any of this area here and here restricted by the sidelines and baselines are fine with me Kevin, just watch that slippery coloured spot there around the middle”.

  • wottywo

    Coach K helping Kevin Durant to the locker room after he attempted to take a charge on Eric Gordon. Dazed and confused, Kevin kept asking Coach K this question in a goofy way. Which way did he go coach huh? Which way did he go huh? Coach K believes Gordon knocked something loose, but they(the players and Coach K) feel confident Kevin Durant will be ready for the next worlds championship game.
