Kevin Durant is currently fighting back about an alleged altercation he had with ESPN host Jay Williams where he was outraged and beside himself over comparisons to Bucks star player Giannis Antetokounmpo. Williams claims Durant responded saying, “‘Yo, don’t you ever compare me to Giannis again! Don’t you ever do that!” And after Williams tried to explain the context, that’s when he said, “He’s like, ‘Nah, don’t ever compare that dude to me, don’t do it!'” Williams said on “Keyshawn, JWill and Zubin.”
Hearing this told on Williams’ ESPN radio show Keyshawn, JWill & Zubin, Durant took to Instagram saying, “This is a F***in lie. Jay Williams can NEVER speak for me, ever.”
No word on what exactly happened has been given yet but let’s not forget Durant was just fined $50,000 for words exchanged through DMs with Michael Rapaport. And they weren’t just light words either. It got quite ugly. In fact, we were shocked at the fact the words came from a 32 year old black man from hood in Prince George’s County, MD.
In the extended DM battle, Durant was asking Rapaport for his address, threatened to spit in his face, named the corner to meet him on to do it and called him a pale c*ck sucker. It sounded more like something he would have given a white girl his phone to handle his DMs. But if he’s capable of that type of outrage, who’s to say he wouldn’t do this? Guess we’ll see if we’ll be finding out when and if he chooses to address this more.
