NBA's Kevin Durant Plays Flag Football At Okla. State
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The pro basketball season still hasn't started, but Kevin Durant got a workout. The Oklahoma City star was killing time sending Twitter messages. He wrote: This lockout is really boring. Anybody playing flag football? According to the Oklahoma newspaper, somebody was. Oklahoma State student George Overby replied that his team had a game planned. The NBA star asked, Can I play? Overby answered, Can you catch? Durant drove across the state to the game. It's MORNING EDITION.
