Kevin Durant's Rabbi

THANK GOD BLESSING WORKED

I Didn't Wanna Be Embarrassed!

One of the 3 rabbis who blessed Kevin Durant before Game 6 says he begged God for the OKC star to have a great game ... because he didn't wanna be embarrassed if the blessing didn't work! 

We spoke with Rabbi Illulian -- one-third of the "Triple Rabbi Blessing" Durant received at the Jewish Education Movement center in L.A. just hours before the Thunder took on the Clippers.

"I really prayed and I made a spiritual contact with my heart to Kevin," the Rabbi says. 

But this is the best part -- "When I heard that [The Thunder] were losing by 16 points, I was a little disappointed ... I said, 'Hey God, don't embarrass me today!"

God came through. Kevin came through. Everyone was happy! 

Except the Clippers.

Don't forget according to donald sterling, who has actually been to "israel" (really palestine or philistine like in the bible) the "black" jew and the "white" jew are treated 100percent un equal!
