Kevin Durant To Name His Daughter After Hope Solo

So this whole Women's World Cup isn't just an ESPN thing no matter what some Debbie Downer tells you. Sure, ESPN may have pushed it, but it's captured pretty much everyone, Kevin Durant included. The Twitter world is packed with athletes commenting on the United States vs. Brazil match, but it went a little father with Durant. The match inspired his future child's name.

Ok it's official, I'm naming my daughter Hope Solo Durant....less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

Maybe he's not completely serious. Maybe he is. Who knows, but I think it's safe to say that he's caught up in the excitement. Does this mean we might also have a Abby Wambach Bryant someday? How about Megan Rapinoe James or Lauren Cheney Jeter?
