Kevin Durant Already Got The Misspelling In His Giant Back Tattoo Fixed

Kevin Durant can do no wrong.

He endeared himself to NBA fans by trying to beat the Memphis Grizzlies all by himself after Russell Westbrook got hurt. He gave $1 million to tornado relief. And now managed to get the embarrassing typo on his giant back tattoo fixed in a number of hours.

Well done, KD:
