Kevin Durant – The Black Panther – National Anthem

Photo by Frans Van Heerden on

Have to give it up for KD and the American team

When the Olympic Games started their play was not super clean

Then Milwaukee Buck Champs

Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton

And post-season runner-up Phoenix Sun Devin Booker

Came on the basketball scene

Soon the USA Basketball team started playing a stifling defense and running the offense like hoop-star fiends!

France at first glance

Did not seem to belong in the Big Dance

With the prodigious NBA All-Stars

Yet Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz), Evan Fournier (NY Knicks), Nicolas Batum (LA Clippers) and point guard Nando De Colo (Knicks should sign immediately) ignited a winners-take-all war!

If you put Kevin Durant on the French roster

As The Black Panther Imposter!

I believe then the story would go

The Frenchman celebrating

Paris wins the 2021 Olympic Basketball gold!

Yet Kevin Durant proved like fine wine from the Napa Valley

The best athletes age swell!

As his gifted American superstar performance

Cool as a cucumber

Primed to excel


Never gets old
