NBA Superstar Kevin Durant got his nickname ‘Durantula’ from Thunder fans while he was playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder. He is lanky with long limbs, hence the insect inspired nickname.
Durant’s height is officially listed as 6’9″, which has never seemed accurate when compared to other NBA players. Durant has admitted that his actual height is 6’10 3/4″ without shoes and a full 7′ with shoes. The NBA’s height listings are generally listed with shoes, therefore Durant should be a 7 footer in NBA standards.
When Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016 to join the Golden State Warriors, there were many social media comments referring to him as a snake.
