08:07 AM ET 09.07 | And you thought the Terps were showing off state pride. A night after comments about Maryland's gaudy new football uniforms burned up Twitter, NBA superstar and Baltimore Kevin Durant is displaying some similar ostentatious pride in his state. And even with a huge Maryland tattooed across his back, Durant's new symbol still looks tame compared to the Terrapins' uniform. Durant's new tattoo appears like it would have hurt to receive it. It has Maryland written in huge letters that stretch from beyond each shoulder blade. Below it, there is an angel grasping a basketball between two large hands. As far as tattoos go, it's one of the biggest and most noticeable I've seen in a long time.
