There are only a handful of names that come easy to literally everyone when we hear the word basketball. There is Stephen Curry, Michael Jordan, and then there is a certain Kevin Durant, who flaunts the colors of the Brooklyn Nets currently. It makes sense that the NBA legend is going to appear on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction as he truly needs no introduction. In yet another season of the talk show, hosted by David Letterman, we will get to see Kevin Durant appear in one episode and talk about something that he feels strongly about weed.
In an official clip released from the episode, we see Durant and Letterman talk about their experiences with weed. And from the conversation, it is pretty clear how both of them feel about it.
Kevin Durant talks about weed, wine, and the de-stigmatization of marijuana with David Letterman
It is no secret that Durant has been very vocal about the use of marijuana, especially when it comes to athletes using it. Hence, it was obvious that when he visited David Letterman on his Netflix Original, he will definitely talk about it. He talked about his involvement in the business of weed with Weedmaps. He revealed it is an attempt to change the narrative around marijuana and its use.
Both of them even revealed when they smoked weed for the first time. For Durant, it was when he was 22, while Letterman was rather young when he first smoked. The host also revealed a funny story about going to a Yankees-Angels game with his girlfriend and before the game, he smoked weed. He also revealed how he doesn’t even remember who won the game, but he kept thinking about how a player was standing on a mound of dirt. The NBA legend called Letterman a curious person, for the very behavior of his.
When Kevin Durant was asked what exactly it feels like to smoke weed, he had a very subtle answer: “To me, it clears the distractions out your brain a little bit, settles you down.” He even said it feels like having a glass of wine and revealed that he was actually high at the time of shooting the episode.
This brief clip has assured all of us that this episode featuring Kevin Durant is going to be a lot of fun. What do you think of the new upcoming season of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman?
