    Maybe there just aren’t a bunch of sports fans on this site, but I think this sounds interesting.

    What a bunch of grumpy, old timers on this thread. I like Durant as a basketball player and I’d be interested in this show.

    But those services are directly related to their hardware/software business. Nobody is going to use the Apple App Store (the dominant service revenue generator) on a non-Apple device.

    What's with Apple recently and pulling in stars?

    I gather 'Planet of the Apps' wasn't enough, they gotta have "a squeal' (...and a totally different show title)

    It took a Herculean effort and 7 games for the Cavs to beat the Warriors in 2016. And that final game could have gone either way. Everyone watching knew they likely couldn't repeat that.

    Free agent but agree with the point being made. At least everyone on the team blew a 3-1 lead.

    Really, he complained that the media in OKC was to hard on him. When LBJ ties his shoes wrong and it’s a sign he’s not happy. Good for KD and he is more successful than I will ever dream of being but he’s kind of a punk. Which is why he had a second twitter defending himself from his detractors.
    That being said, I’ll still watch it.

    Ok this has me stoked. As a Seattle Supersonics fan seeing Kevin Durant in any form is emotional. Miss seeing him in the Green & Yellow and I will be watching this for sure.

    Oh, you mean the one he was gifted by Curry and Thompson after deserting his team to join a superteam? That doesn't count.

    He definitely isn't Dirk. Man, Dirk is the man. Durant will never be Dirk.

    So tell me what you think about LeBron and Miami. I'll wait.

    His Miami championships don't count either. The one with Cleveland counts, but he gets points deducted because of the way he left and the Kevin Love trade to make it happen. Couldn't do it like Dirk did without a super team, who made Lebron his B*** when he won that championship in 2011.

    LeBron is a terrible teammate and awful in the finals. I think he's 3-5. He only went to the Finals because the East is garbage. If he played in the West, he might have 1 championship, but likely 0.

    [shrug] It doesn't have to be that bad. In the meantime, try out other stuff. You can always get back into more Apple products and services when they change their tune.

    Sigh, this isn't making me feel confident in Apple's TV show area.

    The second season will concentrate on his failure to finish off a 73 win team he had down 3-1, then his joining that team. The second season will be called Snake.

    FFS! This is for the US market only right?
    I mean, it'd be like Apple doing a series about Kevin Keegan.

    I hope this fella lived a Family Friendly life.

    Because the people who work on this type of project also do coding in your world?

    You're where I was three years ago. It will only get worse. It'll get so bad, you'll buy competitor products and sell your Apple stock.

    Is it a bad thing to sell Apple stock to buy a Surface Book 2?
    That's where I'm at right now o_O

    Apple "swagger" used to be "It just works."

    Or worse, when the day comes for one of their TV show celebrities or this basketball player to have his #MeToo moment. Hollywood is a scumbag business and Apple is playing with fire for no good reason.
