Eventually, of course, the speech moved on to his Oklahoma City days, which is when he began singling out every teammate, with specific messages of thanks to both the rookies and vets, newcomers and long-time teammates. But the speech, like Durant, began with Prince George’s County.
Which is why it was so cool to see this billboard go up in Prince George’s County. A friend of ESPN 980 host Doc Walker’s sent this photo to him; Walker then gave me permission to share it. He said the billboard is on Central Avenue near Addison Road, close to the Addison Road Metro stop and Central High School. Others have already noticed it as well.
