Kevin Durant has formally inked his Golden State Warriors move. He inked it literally with what could be a signature Kevin Durant tattoo. Just barely a month after switching to the Warriors, it seems Durant has also made a lifetime commitment by sporting a highly controversial Tupac tattoo. Durant’s fans got shocked when he came to a Team USA practice with the huge tattoo still freshly inked on his left leg.
A self-proclaimed fan of Biggie who was Tupac’s rival, Kevin Durant has admitted his allegiance to Biggie not only once or twice but thrice through his tweets. However, the recent Kevin Durant tattoo suggests otherwise. With his change of heart for teams, did it also influence his change of heart for music icons?
Meanwhile, as the Kevin Durant tattoo surfaced, his fans took it as a sign of mid-career crisis for their idol.

Did this tattoo decision come from a need to reaffirm his commitment? If it did, did Durant really have to resort to inking Tupac’s face to remind him of his decision?
Meanwhile, other fans have called for the Crying Jordan meme in light of the Kevin Durant tattoo.

Kevin Durant made the surprising switch after the Golden State Warriors core team and its management made an impressive pitch to get him to switch. They dangled a chance at a championship, which the former Oklahoma City Thunder has always aimed for. Even Stephen Curry humbly called on Durant and emphasized how he does not care who leads the Warriors. Last season, the OKC came close to it before losing to the Golden State Warriors at the Western Conference Finals.
Though before Durant plays with his new team, the newest Kevin Durant tattoo will figure first in the US Men’s National Basketball team’s practices, Sports Illustrated notes.
Kevin Durant is yet to acknowledge all the attention his new tattoo has been gaining. Fans will see more of it once Team USA hits the court in the Rio Olympics this August 5 – 21. Let the Durant with Tupac memes begin.
