Kevin Durant is a cruel video gamer

Per DC Sports Bog after thrashing Gilbert Arenas 42-29 in a half of NBA Live (I think?):

"I thought he was supposed to be a gamer," Durant told me. "I just killed him. He was nothing. I just killed him. Look at the score."

"He's been here since 4 o'clock, you know what I'm saying? So he's been playing. He kind of caught me off guard," Gilbert said. "I'm not embarrassed, because once I get the game home I'm going to spend 8, 9, 10 hours on the game. So next time he plays me online...."

But what else can the veteran say when the young kid has exposed him, when the new star has ascended? Things change so fast in sports, you know? This was my first look at Gilbert at aged 33, playing spot minutes, coming off the bench for a playoff team maybe, still talking, but his mouth now advanced past his skills. I told Durant about Gilbert's excuse.

"He's supposed to be a gamer," Durant repeated. "He's supposed to adjust to that. I'm 5-0 today. I ain't lost."

Sad, really.

Also: Some people smoking outside of Jake's Saloon next door asked me who the tall guy was. I said it was Durant. "[Expletive], he's a big kid," one of the guys said, in an Irish accent. "Who's Kevin Berand?" his friend asked.) Anyways, if you're a Kevin Durant addict that article might fascinate you. Dan Steinberg writes a good blog.
