Kevin Durant met the the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday in the Hamptons. Team owner Steve Ballmer, president/coach Doc Rivers, executive VP of basketball operations Lawrence Frank were all in attendance. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan were also there while Chris Paul stressed the importance of a fulfilling life outside work by being on vacation with the two guys who denied Durant a title in 2012.

Durant was reportedly “blown away” by the Clippers in a meeting that lasted approximately four hours. While it’s not definite that the Clippers used the same kidnapping-like tactices on Durant that they did on DeAndre Jordan last summer, things definitely got emotional – Steve Ballmer apparent cried during the meeting.

We’ve known since Ballmer arrived on the NBA scene that he was an emotional guy, but crying in a meeting with Kevin Durant like he’s George Costanza trying to move his wedding date? KD never had a chance.

Update: Maybe Ballmer wasn’t crying even though we know it’s the kind of thing he would totally do.
