Everyone wants to take the claim for helping get Kevin Durant to Golden State. Renown chef and TV personality Guy Fieri just threw his name into the hat.
In an interview with Justin Bolois of First We Feast, Fieri claims he told the brass at Roc Nation during the playoffs to bring their client to the Warriors.
“You can ask his agent, I said it to him during the playoffs,” Fieri said. “I even have the text. I said, ‘It’s coming up, I want him, you gotta bring him.’ And he was laughing – yeah, yeah, yeah – and he blew me off. (Then later on) I was away from my cell phone, out on the boat, and I was able to get a signal. In came a note from my buddy: ‘KD GS,’ and I went arghhhhhh! I went and woke up the kids.”
I can see it now — Guy Fieri opens a restaurant in Oracle Arena — naming a sandwich after KD.
