On Wednesday Jeff Van Gundy said that the Thunder without Kevin Durant are basically One Direction without Zayn Malik. It's ... not a bad metaphor:
How can One Direction bounce back from Zayn leaving the band today? It's the same thing as Oklahoma City withstanding some adversity with Durant out to continue on with greatness.
At this point, you might need one of two explainers:
- Who is Zayn Malik, and why are 11-year-olds crying about him?
- Who is Kevin Durant, and why are Thunder fans crying about him?
Either way, Jeff Van Gundy has a powerful message of hope for all of us:
"The band can continue on. Just like the band of Oklahoma City can continue on."
