During a recent podcast featuring Dodgers OF Mookie Betts, rookie sensation Corbin Carroll delved into his childhood pastime of attending Seattle SuperSonics games at the age of seven.

Carroll, who will turn 23 in a couple of weeks, attended these games while Suns’ star Kevin Durant was making his first stride in the NBA as a rookie on the SuperSonics back in 2008.

Mookie Betts then pointed out a time just a few months ago when Durant was seen repping a Corbin Carroll jersey in the front row at Chase Field.

While Carroll conceded to never having a direct conversation with KD, his overwhelming sense of joy was unmistakable.

“Seven-year-old Corbin going and watching him, and for him to be there watching us. That was pretty cool.”

It appears to be just a matter of time before these two valley stars cross paths, setting the stage for a highly anticipated and must-watch conversation.
