For a game that doesn't have a reputation for showing off the ability of our top sportsmen, it's amazing how many people look unathletic playing baseball (or, in this case, softball). If you want a quick example type "50 Cent first pitch" into Google. But if you're sick as hell of that footage, and cut Fifty some slack because he's a rapper, then take a look at how a routine pop-up at Richard Sherman's Celebrity Softball Game turned world-class athlete Kevin Durant into the kid who played left field in little league. If KD's six-foot-nine frame didn't already convince you he chose the right sport, then perhaps this video will change your mind. Or (perhaps) you already figured he chose the right sport due to his six All-Star game appearances, four scoring titles, and fucking MVP Award.
