The superstar of the Brooklyn Nets Kevin Durant was furious when he saw a quote uttered by former NBA player Jay Williams who currently works as ESPN analyst. Williams shared a story when he met KD during a holiday party.
According to him, the Nets star was angry at Williams for comparing him to Giannis Antetokounmpo. “Kevin Durant comes up to me and says, ‘Yo, don’t you ever, EVER compare me to Giannis,”‘ Williams said on ESPN’s Get Up.
The story came up as Williams was discussing the Eastern Conference semi-finals series between the Nets and the Bucks.
Durant reacted by posting a comment on Instagram. “This a F*ckin lie. Jay Williams can NEVER speak for me, ever…” he wrote. He later expanded on Twitter.
“Mans will do anything to advance their careers in this media shit, wanting to be accepted by an industry that will dispose of you whenever they please. Keep me out all that corny ass talk about whos better and legacy and all that dumb ass shit. I don’t even talk like that,” Durant tweeted.
