Kevin Durant Left Stone-Faced by David Letterman's Media Day Questions

Brooklyn Nets' superstar Kevin Durant was left stone-faced after he was asked several questions by veteran TV broadcaster David Letterman during the team's media day.

Letterman appeared at the Nets' media day telling Durant that he was "Dave from Basketball Digest," and started off his series of questions by asking him why fans and players referred to him as "KD."

Durant initially paused and appeared to be surprised by the question, saying, "My first name is Kevin, with a K and my last name is Durant with a D."

Letterman then asked Durant "what percentage" he plans on giving during the team's upcoming season.

"110 [percent]," Durant said in response.

As Durant appeared to keep his stone-faced expression, Letterman continued to ask him questions. Letterman jokingly told Durant that he had just got off the phone with New York Knicks owner James Dolan who told him that the Knicks are "working on a contractural deal"that will allow Durant to play for the Knicks on days that he is not playing for the Nets.

"Alright Dave, that was the last one," Durant said in response, while keeping a straight face.

Letterman was then told by someone at the media day to "wrap it up," but he continued to question Durant, asking him if he "giggled" when he played against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Durant laughed in response to the question and said, "yeah."

Following Durant's response, Letterman thanked Durant and the rest of reporters that were at the team's media day, saying "that's all I got. Thank you everybody. Goodnight."

As Letterman left the press conference, Durant said, "Good job, Dave."

While the media day questions were set to continue, Durant shook his head and said, "We let anybody in here."

Letterman responded, "Hey! I heard that," before he left the room.

In addition to Letterman, Nets' point guard Kyrie Irving also made headlines during the team's media day after declining to answer questions about his COVID-19 vaccination status.

Irving attended the media day virtually due to the vaccination policies in New York City but when asked about his vaccination status, Irving said, "Honestly, I'd like to keep that stuff private...I'm a human being first. Obviously living in this public sphere it's just a lot of questions about what's going on in the world of Kyrie. And I think I just would love to just keep that private, handle it the right way with my team and go forward together with the plan."

Newsweek reached out to the Nets for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
