Ah Maryland, the beautiful state on the Eastern seaboard. Member of the original 13 colonies. The state that gave us Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken Jr. The state that is home to the U.S. Naval Academy. Maryland, where the official state song — Maryland my Maryland — refers to Abraham Lincoln as a “tyrant” and a “despot” (it was written at the onset of the Civil War).

Maryland, know that Kevin Durant loves you. A lot.

So fond is he of his native Maryland that he got this new back tattoo (at the bottom of the post). Which is an impressive piece of work, first off. And we might suggest that he is now seriously committed to the number 35.

The image is off of Durant’s twitter account.

    Gary Williams how could you not get KD to come to Maryland? You might be still coaching the Terps.
    Noticed he has a stomach tat of the Washington Nationals logo. .. How long until his contract is up or demands a trade to the Wizards. KD and Wall, thats a nice combo.
