Oklahoma’s efforts to keep Kevin Durant with the Thunder is going all the way to the top job in the state. In answering a question during the Oklahoma Press Association’s annual convention Saturday, Gov. Mary Fallin said she would be willing to give Durant a government post if the seven-time All-Star stays with Oklahoma City.
“If Kevin Durant thinks about leaving, which I hope he doesn’t — Oklahoma loves Kevin Durant, and Kevin Durant loves Oklahoma. But if he’ll stay, I’ll make him a Cabinet person for health and fitness on my Cabinet,” Fallin said, according to the Tulsa World.
