Kevin Durant and Muhammad Ali: Great and greatest

Kevin Durant posted this Instagram selfie with boxing great Muhammad Ali.

Greatness begets greatness, so it's only natural that NBA MVP candidate Kevin Durant would gravitate towards the best.

The Oklahoma City Thunder forward posted this shot on his IG account on Thursday, showing himself with none other than boxing legend Muhammad Ali. 

The photo was captioned with one of Ali's own quotes: "I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was."

Turns out the meeting didn't end there: Ali will attend the Thunder's game against the Phoenix Suns as well.
