Shout Out To Kevin Durant For Owning Up To Still Having Burner Accounts

I still remember the day Kevin Durant came into the office. It was around November, I think? Maybe even December. I think every guest we've ever had come into the office throughout HQ3's history has come through the way we all enter into work, but not KD! It needed to be a secret due to The Corp not being released for months after the interview. Didn't want to ruin the surprise, so they snuck KD in through the service elevator like he was Sinatra. He probably didn't fit in the regular elevator anyways.

I heard about 30 minutes before KD arrived and I stalked out near the studio they were going to record. I had not been that geeked for a guest, probably ever. I didn't even realize how big of a KD guy I was until I heard he was coming to the office.

I didn't get to listen to the podcast until today, but it was well worth the wait. I had only heard KD on the Bill Simmons podcast before, but I thought Big Cat got much better stuff out of one of the all-time greats. My favorite part was KD admitting to still having burner accounts:

Great spin zone by him saying that he just uses them to participate in communities that he doesn't want to be known as KD in. We all know why you use them, KD. No need to lie!

I do love the honesty that he has burners, as in plural. Not just one, but multiple. Excited to see how much use they get when he starts playing for the Nets.

I wish it was asked how many players in the NBA have burners...gotta be 50%, right? Or am I overestimating? Every person needs acknowledgement, it doesn't matter how much money you make or how good at your craft you're. That's why I think the number is so high. I don't care if you're KD, you still get pissed off when somebody is talking shit about you. That's why you have the burner.
