Kevin Durant is the reigning MVP, but is he or isn't he able to palm a basketball?

Despite previous reports, it seems all may be right in the world: Thunder star Kevin Durant CAN, in fact, palm a basketball.

Sunday, prior to the Thunder’s annual Blue & White scrimmage, Durant was caught on camera in the act.

However, the news does come with a disclaimer. It appears that the reigning MVP is unable to hold the palmed ball for a long period of time, according to Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry.

Does it count as a palm or not? The jury is still out on the decision.
