While Durante was touring the world, sports fans have taken to call Kevin Durant “Durantula ” and Mark Durante became suing mad when he found out. According to court documents, Durante alleges he reached out to Kevin Durant’s camp asking them to stop using the moniker, but they told Durante they weren’t using the nickname at all. Durante claims Nike used “Durantula” to promote a sneaker campaign and KD signed a few basketballs using the name which were sold on his website.
