Kevin Durant was wearing a Chicago Bulls hat

Is this news? Is this a big deal? Should we really care about this? Absolutely no on all accounts.

But... I couldn't help but wonder when I saw that picture whether or not we'd be making a big deal if that were say LeBron James wearing a Knicks hat. Or Chris Paul wearing a Heat hat. Or Dwight Howard wearing a Lakers hat. Or Kobe Bryant wearing a Timberwolves hat. (Yeah, I know that would never, ever happen, but it's funny to picture.)

Obviously, we'd be making a pretty huge deal if any of those guys did that. With LeBron, just because anything he does is a big deal. With CP3 because of his uncertain future in New Orleans. Same thing with Howard in Orlando. And Kobe just because that type of thing would never happen.

But it makes me wonder if this isn't a big deal just because it's the iron-clad, bulletproof Durant doing it or because it truly isn't a big deal. I mean, we all freaked over LeBron wearing a Yankees hat and while I realize that was under much different circumstances, it was still a story, while this definitely is not.

I can't really decide why though. It's probably just because we haven't reached a point with Durant where we freak over things. Not because he isn't a superstar, but just that we don't obsess over the minutia of his every little thing he does. Unless it's tattoos, of course

Durant is locked up with the Thunder through 2016 with the Thunder so it's not like he could actually go to the Bulls or anything. So forget that angle. Maybe he was just wearing it because the Thunder's logo isn't anywhere near as cool as the Bulls. That's what I'm thinking.

My biggest question is what he was thinking when he bought/ put the hat on to wear out? Did he think about how this would be viewed? Or was he so ignorant that he thought people would just consider it an MJ throwback? It is one thing to switch sports and wear something from another city.... but rocking a Bulls hat just seams.... ignorant.

The kid just has mad swag. Black hat with black shirt makes sense it matches. Maybe thats why you fat asses who just live for sports and have never been laid think this is a big deal you gotta rock tht swag.

they decided to play an NBA season with XBOX NBA LIVE... and durant was traded to the bulls..

what else to these overpaid , immature 20 YO have to do with their millions and time..

i love my bulls, but most of these new generation kids have ruined the game of basketball.. it wouldnt disappoint me one bit if they skipped the season to weed out some of these players..

I'll give Durant props for being a great basketball player, but the guy is no doubt one of the biggest punks in the NBA. He walks around with that 3rd grader's backpack everywhere he goes, makes wannabe toughguy comments, pushes at least one player one an opposing team during each is this guy's problem? He's about 60 pounds when he's wet and wearing boots.. and ridiculously immature. Have no idea why he's wearing a Bull's hat now, gotta be distasteful to OKC though. Maybe Durant is just in a Jordan wannabe phase, best excuse I can come up with for him.

The NBA reporters are getting desperate at news to write about. I think it is funny that they make a big enough deal about this that it is news. Please settle the labor dispute so these guys can start to write about real issues, not the crap that we have seen lately.

Another day, another irrlevant NBA article. 

I expect this week there will be a story about Kobe's grocery receipts.

Any NBA news is irrelevant at this point since there is probably no season. Who cares if he is wearing a bulls hat, he could either like the way the hat looks, or maybe he grew up a bulls fan during the jordan days and still has love for them. I'm a cubs fan but have hats from other teams because I like them, my favorite one being the A's.

Maybe not a big deal but not a SMALL deal. Being under contract means this is NOT a hint he is going to the Bulls but hey, where is the loyalty and judgement? Could you imagine Brady wearing any hat belonging to another NFL team? Sidney Crosby wearing a Habs hat? I think not!

Lebron wearing a Yankee hat- well it was Lebron probably making a statement but at least it was another sport.

Durant should NOT be wearing this and maybe it is time he not be given so much slack when he makes a bad decision. Any NFL, NHL logo is fine but not an opponent's logo.
