Oklahoma City Thunder forwardKevin Durant(notes) is typically considered to be one of the most likable players in the NBA, a humble kid who just happens to be blessed with unreal ability on the court. For a league with past stars like Allen Iverson(notes)that rubbed some fans the wrong way, Durant represents someone with broad appeal. Oh, and it’s also commonly believed that he has no tattoos, if that matters to you.
It turns out that last part isn’t entirely accurate. As you can see in the photo above, taken during a recent promotional trip to China, Durant’s torso is covered in ink (via TBJ). Like most of today’s NBA players, he likes tattoos. Unlike them, he doesn’t get them on parts of the body that can be seen easily while he plays basketball.
After the jump, check out the first hint we got of Durant’s tattoos in a photo from Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals vs. theMemphis Grizzlies. From the looks of things, he’s added at least one tattoo since then. READ THE REST HERE ON YAHOO
