Typically, nicknames are given. Sure, there are some rare outstanding cases but that’s generally how it works. I’m not 100% positive, but I’m pretty sure Kevin Durant’s “Durantula” nickname was given to him. I mean, it would be dumb to give yourself a nickname that’s a play on your own last name.
Either way, some guitarist is saying that KD has stolen the “Durantula” name and has decided to sue the OKC Thunder forward.
Durant was sued today in Federal Court by a guy named Mark Durante — a guitarist who, according to the lawsuit, was a big deal in the 80s … playing with Public Enemy, The Aliens, The Next Big Thing, and The Revolting Cocks. One game away from losing the Finals, Durant isn’t having a good week.
