Last night when KD and the Thunder matched up against the Heatles, something I thought I would never see in my lifetime, happened. Two of the most mild mannered players in the game, Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh, got into a spat, which resulted in a double tech…seriously.
According to The Oklahomian, KD claimed he was simply letting his teammate know that he should dunk on Bosh the next time, and he has no idea why he chimed in. After all, he wasn’t even talking to him.
What ever you say, Kev.
KD says, “I’m no punk. I wasn’t even talking to him, first-off. He decided to butt in. I’m not just going to let that slide, especially in our house. He’s not one of those guys that I look at and say he has a rep for talking back to guys or always getting into it. He’s a nice guy. He’s not one of those guys. So I’m not going to let that type of person say something to me like that.”
If saying that wasn’t enough, he adds, “I’m a quiet guy, a laid back guy. But I’m not going to let nobody talk trash to me. He’s on a good team now so he thinks he can talk a little bit. But it’s a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he’s one of them.”
First off, kudos to Kevin for blatantly calling Bosh out like that. It takes gonads and opportunity to pull it off convincingly and he had both.
I like KD. I’m a fan of his game and he’s clearly THE best scorer in the league today- probably one of the best of all time. I like that look on him and prefer him to wear that. I’m not saying KD is a punk but he doesn’t exactly double as the team’s security…Harden’s beard, alone, makes him top 2 toughest guys on the team.
I guess my biggest question is, since KD said he doesn’t let guys that “I look at and say he has a rep for talking back to guys or always getting into it” talk to him like that, does he mean that players that are known for that (like KG) CAN talk to him like that?
I mean…KD is the kind of player you just want to give a big hug or call him for help if you need help reaching a cat out of a tree. Maybe hit him with one of these…
Just a cool guy. I salute him sticking up for his teammates and I like where his heart is but…I just don’t buy it.
P.S. So you’re just going to let him talk to you like that, Chris??? Not in the locker room, not on the court but to the WORLD?! You’re going to let him call you out in front of your mama, fiance, kids, friends, fam…THE WORLD?!?!
Let me get this straight, you’re just going to let Kevin Durant talk crazy to you like that and then talk ABOUT you like you’re nothing?? He pretty much said, ‘You weren’t tough when you were on the Raptors, shut up’.
He played you Chris. You’re the third member of The Heatles, have some dignity and self respect for yourself and your team.
