Kevin Durant's tattoo

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant surprised fans a few seasons ago when they first discovered that his NBA uniform was concealing quite a few tattoos. Now he is surprising fans again with his latest tattoo, but mostly because there may be a typo in the text.

Durant posted a picture of the new tattoo - which is a massive image of Jesus alongside scripture from the Bible - on Instagram. The quote is from James 1:2-4 and reads:

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.

Washington Times sports blogger Sarah Kogod was one of the first to notice that the word "mature" seems to be spelled "mautre." Durant has yet to comment on whether or not his new tattoo contains the misspelled word.
