Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant responded to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith yet again regarding his take.
Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant is not shy about sharing his thoughts on Twitter. That is evident, especially when he is talked about by ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. That all began earlier in the week, where Smith said if Durant were not to win the NBA Championship with the Nets and the Warriors were, then he would be known more for leaving Stephen Curry for Kyrie Irving rather than for winning two NBA Finals MVP’s with Golden State.
That spurned a reply on Twitter, calling Smith’s take “egregious.”
On ESPN’s NBA Countdown on Saturday, Smith continued to clarify his take regarding Durant. Well, Durant responded, calling Smith “a flat out hater.”
Kevin Durant-Stephen A. Smith Twitter feud reignites
A couple of hours after Durant hit send, Smith responded to him in six tweets, telling him to “stop the B.S.” That, and Smith said that he is not rooting for the narrative, but he is “calling it like [he] sees it.” You can take a look at them below.
Smith’s point, as stressed above, is that Durant will be more known for leaving Curry for Irving if the Warriors are to win the NBA Championship than for his him winning two Larry O’Brien Trophies with Golden State.
Durant, obviously, does not agree with the take, hence his more lengthy response than the one he made days earlier.
Of course, the Nets have been playing the majority of their season without their super team intact, as Durant is out with an MCL sprain while Irving is unable to play at home games due to New York City’s vaccine mandate. Now, there is buzz that James Harden could be gone either at the trade deadline or after the season, with the Philadelphia 76ers emerging as a potential suitor.
There is still plenty of season remaining, and it is entirely likely that the Nets could compete and potentially win the NBA Championship. We will find out that answer and see if Durant can put an end to that talking point.
