David Letterman interrupts the Nets’ media day and asks Kevin Durant a series of ridiculous questions.

Comedian David Letterman awoke Monday morning and decided that attending the Brooklyn Nets’ media day would be the best way to start his week. Letterman peppered player Kevin Durant with silly questions in a video that quickly went viral, especially because Durant took the questions seriously until one about playing for the New York Knicks came up. It’s unclear why Letterman was in attendance. Letterman introduced himself as “Dave with Basketball Digest” at the start of the media session with Durant. “He warmed up Durant with a simple question, simply asking why people call him KD,” Durant replied. “My first name is Kevin with a ‘K,’ and my last name is Durant with a ‘D.’” Durant also told Letterman that this season he will give “110” percent effort on the court.

Kevin Durant is asked why he is referred to as KD:
