Durant tries flag football, LeBron challenges him

Published:

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- With the NBA lockout dragging on, two-time scoring champion Kevin Durant was ready for some football. Flag football.

And LeBron James could be interested in joining him.

Durant tweeted Monday that he was interested in playing flag football. When fans at Oklahoma State University offered an invitation, he showed up in Stillwater that night to play. He tweeted later that he threw four touchdown passes and made three interceptions in a victory.

Then on Tuesday, James tweeted to him that he was interested in setting up a showdown between Durant's team and his own team in Akron, Ohio. Durant answered back that his team is ready and James should set it up.

The NBA season would have started Tuesday if not for the lockout.
