Kevin Durant gives his shoes to Bubba Watson after win over Clippers (VIDEO)

May 17, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

Following the Thunder’s series-clinching victory over the Clippers, Kevin Durant did his customary walk-off interview and as soon as it was over, he removed his shoes and jogged over to deliver them to a courtside fan in attendance.

The recipient of the shoes was none other than professional golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson.

The two have apparently grown to become fast friends, via Jason Sobel of GolfChannel.com:

“I sent some messages back to Kevin Durant, when that article came out, or the headline came out, which was one of the dumbest headlines I’ve ever seen. [A recent headline in the Daily Oklahoman called him “Mr. Unreliable.”] I guess it worked, because it inspired him a little bit, or maybe it’s my text message that inspired him. We’ll go with that.”

Not a bad perk for a fellow professional athlete — courtside seats, game-worn shoes, and a friendship with the NBA’s reigning MVP.
