Durant: Meeting Rickey Henderson Took Love of Baseball ‘to Another Level'

A day after the Warriors finished off a sweep of the Jazz in Utah, Kevin Durant was back in Oakland on Tuesday and spent his day off taking in the A's-Angels game with his agent Rich Kleiman.

The two sat behind home plate. But midway through the game, Durant and Kleiman ducked into the A's clubhouse to meet a special guest.

Durant talked about the experience in his latest YouTube livestream on Wednesday afternoon.

"I saw [Angels 1B/DH Albert] Pujols hit a home run. That was on the bucket list. That was amazing. But probably in the fifth inning, we went into the clubhouse and sat in the back and talked to Rickey Henderson until the game was over. Seemed like forever, but was probably an hour, hour and a half. And his insight and stories and everything he told us was legendary and definitely an experience I'll remember for the rest of the my life. I've fallen in love with the game of baseball and that took it to another level being able to meet a legend," Durant said.

Kleiman took a photo of the two together.

On April 27, Durant attended the Giants-Dodgers game in San Francisco.

Last September, a few months after Durant signed with the Warriors, he threw out the first pitch prior to a Giants-Cardinals game at AT&T Park.
