One of the rabbis that blessed Kevin Durant before game 6 of the Thunder/Clippers series admits that he was a little nervous when he tuned into the game and saw the Thunder was losing by 16 points. He didn’t want to be embarrassed if his blessing didn’t work.
“I really prayed and I made a spiritual contact with my heart to Kevin,” the Rabbi says.
The funny thing about this is the idea that god is really paying attention to a basketball game with all the other things going on in world. Don’t tell that to Rabbi Illulian though. He’s definitely convinced that his blessing led to the good lord intervening on behalf Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
