THUNDERTAKER!!! suggested by Ball Don't Lie guy


If you're a professional wrestling fan, you remember The Undertaker even if you haven't watched wrestling since you were 15 and hanging out in your buddy's basement. Believe it or not, the big guy is still wrestling, even though he's lost some hair and gone through a few different versions of his character.

One young fan who is super excited that The Undertaker is still active is Kevin Durant(notes). He, along with some teammates and friends, recently attended "Monday Night Raw" and he was this close to re-enacting Karl Malone's famed stint in the ring.

From his blog:

And no lie, I was thinking about going onstage if the Undertaker came out. He showed up on the big screen, and you know when the Undertaker comes out everything goes black for a while. I was right by the ring so I was going to jump over the rail and jump in the ring and by the time they put the lights on I was going to be up there right beside the Undertaker. I was just going to do it spur of the moment! I was going to have fun with it. But he didn't come out, so it never happened.

I can't believe Vince McMahon let this opportunity slide by. He must still be mad at the NBA for that Pepsi Center drama with the Nuggets last year.

Then again, this is probably for the best. The last time an NBA personality hopped in a WWE ring, he got thrown through a table. Durant would break in half.

Durantula. Thundertaker is pretty good though. It'll apply as long as he's an okc thunder.

I don't think any of the Nets fans called VC air canada when he came here.

Anything is better than Durantula...not sure this is the one though.

Thundertaker could grow on me upon second thought. Much better than Durantula.

If he leaves the Thunder the nickname would no longer make sense.

Its all about durantula. Skeletor is pretty awesome too. Pretty much anything thing that describes how skinny and lanky he is works.

KD or Durantula! Thudertaker seems super lame to me cause the undertaker was a huge slow guy with brute force, nothing like kevin durant. Tarantulas on the other hand are fast quick and agile just like kevin durant oh yeah and their limbs are lanky and skinny and just weird.

yup

Durantuala is the best one, if he ever leaves the Thunder then this name will make no sense, therefore it is not a real nickname

Durant's gotta have the worse set of nicknames in the history of the NBA. All his nicknames sound like he's on a 3rd grade rec team. Thundertaker just adds to that.

But, I'd have to say he's got the most creative nicknames.

props to anyone who gets this horrible reference

Well Thunder as a team name is pretty much a joke anyways. :D

Thundertaker is a horrible nickname. It makes no sense, it doesn't fit his gme, he can onkly use it as long as he plays for the thunder. I just call him Kevin.

I've got my opinion, you've got yours. I'm not going to argue it because I could come up with a million reasons to support both.

why does everyone have to have a nickname?
doesnt work for everyone. i just call him KD or Durant

does Steve Nash have a nickname? no
does Dirk have a true nickname? no
what about Patrick Ewing?
or Bill Russell?
or John Stockton?
or lets go today again.
does Ray Allen have one? (Jesus Shuttlesworth is stupid)
does Brandon Roy have one? (BRoy is the same as KD)
does Deron Williams have one? (same as BRoy)
does Pau Gasol?

ok, you see where im going here?
kobe didnt have one til a few years ago.

Durantula blows
Thundertaker? oh my goodness
