All eyes were on Kevin Durant at the start of free agency and perhaps because of that, the Warriors superstar got a giant tattoo of the rapper Tupac Shakur on his calf.
According to the Mercury News' Marcus Thompson, Durant is a big fan of Tupac and is impressed with the rapper's mind:
Durant is a huge Pac fan, I just learned. Biggie is his favorite but he is supremely impressed with Pac's mind at such a young age— Marcus Thompson (@ThompsonScribe) July 21, 2016
Durant is actually heavily tatted up but most of his tattoos are on his back and chest, so they are not always visible since he is usually wearing a jersey or shirt. This tattoo however is clearly visible and is already getting plenty of ridicule on social media:

I choose to believe KD got that tattoo so he can have something to reveal once he pulls off these bad boys. pic.twitter.com/jLlBNwkS4R— Dan Devine (@YourManDevine) July 21, 2016
And of course Durant's tattoo got the Crying Jordan treatment:

Durant may be quite proud of his tattoo but yet again, the internet stays undefeated.
