A height of 6'9" and a 7'4" wingspan—add the skills of a shooting guard, and you have Kevin Durant.

The man can cross you up, soar in for a highlight-reel dunk or even knock down an effortless three.

Yes, the reigning MVP can do it all.

Except palm a basketball.

KD surprisingly cannot grip an NBA basketball with one hand, according to Oklahoma City Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry:

Some people may remember an old photo of Durant apparently palming two basketballs while wearing a Montrose Christian jersey:

He explains how he was able to accomplish the feat:

So the man can't palm a basketball, folks.

Something tells me the Thunder can live with that.
