Amber Rose once performed a playful spin that stunned Kevin Durant at Oakland’s Celebrity Softball Game

Kevin Durant, widely regarded as one of the best players of this generation, has not only dominated the basketball court but also influenced the NBA with his remarkable talent. However, it was a lighthearted moment years back at Oakland’s Celebrity Softball Game that shocked even Durant himself, thanks to a surprising move by the talented Amber Rose.

Amber Rose, the popular model and actress, joined the star-studded event that brought together celebrities from various fields to showcase their softball skills. Amidst the cheers from the crowd, Rose had taken the field alongside Durant, capturing everyone’s attention.

Rose’s unforgettable interaction with Durant

Back in 2017, Amber Rose left basketball star Kevin Durant stunned during Oakland’s Celebrity Softball Game with her playful antics. A recent resurfacing of the clip on social media caused it to quickly go viral once again.

During the event, Rose and Durant shared a friendly hug before she unexpectedly spun around in front of him, giving him a full 360-degree view. The duo was attending JaVale McGee’s celebrity softball game at the famed Oakland Coliseum. This marked the third year of the highly-anticipated event.

The interaction between Rose and Durant buzzed across headlines at the time. The video offers a slightly extended version of the amusing incident, providing a glimpse into the light-hearted atmosphere of the star-studded event.

Although the exact reason for Rose’s spontaneous spin remains unclear, it certainly left an unforgettable impression on Durant and those who witnessed the playful moment and maybe KD’s tweet had to do something with it.

Kevin Durant’s hilarious message to Amber Rose

Kevin Durant had some hilarious messages for Amber Rose back in the day. In 2011, Durant famously tweeted about drinking Scarlett Johansson’s bathwater, but even before that, he couldn’t help but share his amusement over Rose’s bald head.

Kevin Durant tweeted, “Amber Rose got the slickest and meanest bald head ever…she just walked in the spot and I froze up lol.” It seems like a younger Durant was quite taken aback by Rose’s unique look.

In the same year, he tweeted again, “Amber Rose, I know this is random, but I saw you in LA, and you got the meanest bald head ever!!! Better than MJ, Charles Barkley, and all them!!”

Years later, rumors circulated about Kevin Durant and Rose dating after being spotted together at a hotspot in Los Angeles. However, Rose quickly dismissed the claims, stating, “I was not with him at all. We were at the same restaurant, that’s it.” She clarified that they merely exchanged pleasantries, nothing more.

While these two could have been a power couple, fate had different plans. Rose declared earlier this year that her dating days are over, and it seems Durant has little interest in pursuing relationships. So, unfortunately, we won’t be seeing them together anytime soon.

While his off-court shenanigans are quite well-known, his performances for the 2023 season have definitely caught a lot of headlines. For the 2023-24 season, the 35-year-old is averaging 31.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game while shooting 52.8% from the field and 49.2% from beyond the arc. It’s remarkable how efficient he has been considering how many shots he takes and how difficult they tend to be.

As the season progresses, fans can expect Durant to keep putting up impressive numbers and leading his team to success and hope they win the title this year.
