Kevin Durant celebrates Suns trade at Michael Rubin’s Super Bowl party
Kevin Durant is already getting comfortable in his new home.
The NBA player, who was traded to the Phoenix Suns from the Brooklyn Nets earlier this week, was spotted celebrating the trade at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party at the Arizona Biltmore on Saturday.
Durant quietly entered the lavish, invite-only party and was later seen toasting with Drake, Travis Scott and Rubin. The owner of the Phoenix Suns, Mat Ishbia, as well as Durants new teammates Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton were also in attendance.
Scott took the stage to perform for the well-heeled crowd, which included Paul Rudd, Jay-Z, Quavo and Shaquille O’Neal.
“Put your phones away,” Scott yelled at the audience, adding that if they had phones in their hands, it meant they weren’t taking shots. “This is a rager,” he told the partygoers.
We hear security turned away 2,000 uninvited guests attempting to get into the exclusive annual pre-Super Bowl bash.
The Chainsmokers performed a melody of their hits including “Paris” and “Closer,” while DJ Khaled got up on stage and welcomed people to “Rubinpalooza.” Meek Mill, J Balvin and Lil Baby took the stage as well.
Things got so rowdy that even New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft got on stage and took some shots.
Joe Burrow, Odell Beckham Jr., Tyga, Trevor Lawrence, Dixie D’Amelio, David Spade, Winnie Harlow, A$AP Ferg, Questlove, Jesse Palmer and Gayle King were all in attendance.
Rubin, a Philadelphia native, told Page Six it’s “so much more fun” when his annual party is celebrating his hometown team. He also dished that his box on Sunday will be loaded with celebrities including Mill, Scott, Lil Baby, all the D’Amelios and Kevin Hart — who walked the red carpet with a grocery cart full of his tequila Gran Coramino.
Meanwhile, Rubin’s girlfriend Camille Fishel joked that she’s in better spirits to party now after face-planting at the Fanatics CEO’s Fourth of July bash last year.
“To clear the record, I just had a baby and I fainted!” Fishel told us, while Rubin joked, “She’s going to go sit down right now. We’re going to put a helmet on her head. She’s wearing an Eagles helmet for sure.”
The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET.
