Kevin Durant For Public Service, Or The Silly Season Is Upon Us

Building A Resume
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin (R-Obviously, as if there were Ds in Oklahoma) said she would be willing to give the Thunder free agent and seven-time All-Star a government post if he stays in-state.

No, seriously.

The position is said to be for a Cabinet position as a health and fitness minister, or some such stuff. I'm kind of amazed that Fallin gave that much thought to the concept, having already locked down the important part of Securing Media Attention, but there it is. And this is where we really need a Key and Peele-ish NBA-centric skitcom to show KD coming into the room hell-bent with ideas for longer recess, better nutrition in the school systems, taxes on sugary drinks and the like. (Feel free to launch a 12-point program of your own, Durantula.)

This sort of thing is going to keep on for the next 2-3 weeks, or until the "official" (as if such things wait for the deadline) start of free agency on July 1.

And the fact that it hit the air on a Sunday night before a Monday Game Five?

Tells you all you need to know about how hard everyone's watching these runaway Finals...
