NBA superstar Kevin Durant isn’t losing any sleep over accusations shot his way from hip-hop pal Game about refusing to cough up $20,000 on a basketball bet. #GameOver
Durant hopped onto his Twitter page to deny the claims.
“Aight this is it. I never bet the game 20k cash. I never bet him. I told him I would give his aau team kd gear. That’s all.,” KD tweeted June 11. (Kevin Durant’s Twitter)
Earlier in the week, Game went on a full-fledged Instagram rant about Durnant’s denial.
“”Now why @easymoneysniper frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said….. ‘If I made the 3 from NBA range you’d supply the entire @froggallstarsprogram with brand new Kevin Durant shoes’…… 120 kids, close to $200 a shoe equals about $20,000….. How am I lying ???? Just say you a sore loser & you ain’t wanna help the kids…. It ain’t that they need it cause I bought all 120 kids Lebrons out my own pocket as you can see on their Instagram.. But I thought it would be kool for them to meet you & be able to ball in your shoes especially since they look up to you & I made the shot as WE AGREED…@champagnepapi was right there, so was @[email protected]_skit & @Demar_Derozan But don’t sweat it champ, we’ll still support you & I’ll go buy them myself just cause they mean that much to me….. 1 love – The Game” (Game’s Instagram)
Last week, the West Coast hip-hop star broke the news of his alleged $20,000 winning.
“Bet Kevin Durant a.k.a. @EasyMoneySniper $20,000 that he’d have to donate to the @froggallstars & play wit #LaFamilia in the #DrewLeague if I made an NBA 3 pointer all net & my hittas @jharden13 @Demar_Derozan & @ChampagnePapi was right there to witness it all… I guess that’s that ! KD must ain’t get the memo….. My jumper wetter than stripper p%$$¥ !!!!!!!!!” (Game’s Instagram)
Despite the war of words, both entertainers have reached an agreement.
But now, Game says he spoke with KD on the phone — and both chalk the whole thing up to a “miscommunication.” Game says the bet was always supposed to be about $20k in “basketball gear” that KD would donate to the league … and insists cash was never supposed to change hands. The rapper added, “He’s a professional athlete and so, I guess the rules are they are not to gamble on basketball … which is very understandable.” Game says KD agreed to donate the gear — so in the end, the real winners are the kids.
