KD Responds To Draymond’s Spot With His Game 1 Finals Tweet originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area
Receipts were drawn and disses were thrown as the 32-year-old vet held his haters accountable.
One tweet, though vague, seemed to be aimed at him former Golden State teammate Kevin Durant†
Before the Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics in six games in the NBA Finals, Durant posted his Game 1 thoughts on Twitter.
Of course, the Celtics won Game 1 by a score of 120-108, and Green’s tweet after the final seemed to mock Durant’s assessment of the match.
But on the latest episode of “The ETCs with Kevin Durant,” the two-time NBA champion explained to friend Eddie Gonzalez what he meant by the post and responded to Green’s reply.
“Oh yes, Draymond, I tweeted that when the game went back and forth, my brother,” Durant said on the podcast. “I know you take everything personally. I know you want to shoot anyone you want, but the game went back and forth.
“I think [the Warriors were] when I tweeted that.”
Gonzalez recalled a succession of “disgusting” shots in Game 1 between Jayson Tatum and Steph Curry as the sequence that inspired Durant to tweet about the game’s high standard.
“Yeah, come on man,” Durant agreed. †[Green] it seemed like I was taking sides. Like, I wanted you both to play great basketball, and if I could, I’d want you both to lose.”
That wasn’t the only time Durant mentioned the Warriors during the podcast episode, either.
He pushed back on the fan story that he’s jealous of Golden State’s most recent title, and despite being pretty quiet on social media during the final, he revealed what he thought from Steph Curry’s “iconic” Game 4 masterpiece.
Still, Green and Curry have gone to say their fourth NBA championship in eight seasons was special because it proved they could win without Durant, who helped bring two titles to the bay.
And while rumors continue to circulate about the future of both Durant and Kyrie Irving with the Brooklyn Nets, it remains to be seen where the two-time Finals MVP will bring his own high level of basketball play next season.
