Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant said he is yearning to trade for Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani in MLB The Show, even at the expense of Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner. The Nats star responded in kind.

Durant called Ohtani a “Different breed” last night, suggesting Turner might be out of a roster spot after he virtually acquires the Angels’ two-way star.

One day later, Turner mused he still does not know the status of his video game counterpart.

Although Durant spends his playing days in Brooklyn with the Nets, his sporting allegiances remain in Washington, D.C.

The Nets forward has remained steadfast in his fandom of the Washington Football Team and Washington Nationals. Still, even Durant is marveling at the things Ohtani is doing with the Angels this season.

Ohtani is a talent unlike any other in modern baseball. He has been one of the foremost sluggers in the sport, with 10 homers and a .903 OPS. The 26-year-old also boasts exceptional speed, with six stolen bases. Of course, he has brilliant stuff on the rubber.

Ohtani did it all for the Angels on Tuesday against the Houston Astros. He struck out 10 batters and gave up one run in seven innings and even moved to right field after being replaced on the mound.

In many ways, Ohtani is to baseball what Durant is to basketball. The Nets All-Star is pretty much in his own category as a 7-footer who can score from anywhere on the floor and use his tremendous handle to break opponents down off the dribble. Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that Durant appreciates what Ohtani is doing on the diamond.

Still, Durant can’t find a way to keep Turner on his virtual Nationals roster? The 27-year-old is hardly a slouch, slashing .323/.366/.548 with eight homers and seven steals.
