Bubba Watson got an unexpected gift from Kevin Durant
By Alex Myers
On Tuesday, Bubba Watson spent much of his day at Ping headquarters signing gear and memorabilia (in addition to treating more than 900 people to Chipotle). On Thursday, he received a special sports collectible of his own.
Watson was sitting courtside for Game 6 of the NBA playoff game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. And after the Thunder pulled out a series-clinching road win at the Staples Center, the team's superstar and league MVP, Kevin Durant, came over to say hi.
Durant, who has become friendly with Watson through Twitter, also gave the reigning Masters champ one of his game shoes. This made Bubba very happy.
