After the Pondexter pick, the camera immediately cuts to Kevin Durant, who tried to pretend it wasn't on him and showed no emotion at Pondexter's selection. Kevin clearly has been able to remember and compute the information that the ESPN director has forgotten; this pick is being traded by the Thunder to the Hornets. But even with this visual reminder, the director still doesn't remember the trade, and sends Heather Cox down there to interview Kevin. Heather seems to remember - rather than asking Durant anything about Pondexter, she speaks in more general terms about the Thunder's movements, and ends on a Cole Aldrich question. Cox adds much needed stability to an occasionally wild production team. It's just unfortunate that such a lady has such a surname.
The corporate world seems to encourage this. Knowing that the idea of a basketball player in a music video is a terrific comedy vehicle if done correctly, Nike conscripted four of its payroll - Kevin Durant, Mo Williams, Rashard Lewis and Andre Iguodala - to star in the following video, entitled "Hyperize," a slick production that is absolutely dominated by the sight of Williams in jheri curls.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
