With the NBA Finals in full swing, reigning MVP Kevin Durant has plenty of time on his hands to kill until next season. After he and his Oklahoma City Thunder were eliminated from the Playoffs by the supposed curse of the Based God, he’s been hanging out in Los Angeles clearing his mind. Which, by happenstance, included hanging out with The Game for an alleged big money wager.
This past Friday, Game and Durant were chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool shooting hoops with Drake along with NBA stars James Harden and Demar Derozan. Somewhere down the lines, Game shot–and hit a 3-pointer which he claims was worth $20,000 to be paid out of KD25’s pocket.
“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…” he said on the Instagram video which also evidenced the made basket. “I guess that’s that ! KD must ain’t get the memo….. My jumper wetter than stripper p%$$¥ !!!!!!!!!!”
TMZ rolled up on Durant during a recent L.A. workout to ask whether or not he was Pete Rosing the game of basketball and he was totally taken aback on the accusations.
“That’s false. He’s lying,” said an exhausted but obviously coherent KD said to the cameras.
Of course the news traveled back to Game and he was none to pleased with Kevin Durant’s convenient amnesia.
“Now why @easymoneysniper frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said….. “If I made the 3 from NBA range you’d supply the entire @froggallstars program with brand new Kevin Durant shoes”…… 120 kids, close to $200 a shoe equals about $20,000….. How am I lying ????,” asked Game on his Instagram. “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 @jharden13 @trim_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.”
Thankfully cooler heads prevailed and Game says he spoke to Durant and there was “miscommunication” that caused him to act rationally.
“Had a conversation with @easymoneysniper this morning & we both agreed that there was a miscommunication between the middle party which was “TMZ” & that the way the camera man presented it to him was as if he bet me $20,000 cash which wasn’t the case…. We agreed that if I hit the 3 point shot he would get KD gear & his kicks for all the kids in our @froggallstars organization which is close to 130 children…. 130 kids at a price of maybe $150 a shoe & gear after tax equals close to $20,000 give or take so that’s where that # came from. When I woke up & had multiple texts & calls saying KD called me a liar on TMZ, I acted immediately in clearing things up on my end on my page & didn’t have a # on @easymoneysniper to clear it up privately which is what I should’ve done because the situation that was meant to be friendly & charitable to the kids & is now blown out of proportion…. But again, after talking to KD this am he again agreed to get all the kids his kicks & KD gear & also stated he was taken back by the $20,000 cash because that wasn’t what was agreed on by us….. It was a friendly bet that was only purely beneficial to the kids in our program & I’m glad we straightened it out in the end & I personally told @easymoneysniper my bad for jumping the gun due to what I read on TMZ this am. It was truly a miscommunication.. I could’ve chose my words a bit wiser & made it a little more clear…. So on behalf of all the kids, myself & the @froggallstars organization, we want to thank him again for looking out for our kids & our fast growing program, it’s very much appreciated
