Trending: Kevin Durant responds to HBO Hard Knocks diss on Twitter
In the latest episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks, someone’s dad took a random shot at Kevin Durant while in the gym with his son. KD, no stranger to clapping back to people on Twitter, responded once the clip surfaced online last night.
Second year wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (tight name) and his family were working out in the gym. His brother, Equanimeous (very tight name), is a receiver for the Chicago Bears, while his father, John Brown, was a two-time Mr. Universe bodybuilder in the 1980s.
While John Brown was training his sons in the gym, he decided to throw in a Kevin Durant diss,. talking about the NBA star’s calves.
“You gotta train your whole body,” Brown said. “Kevin Durant and these guys mess their Achilles up. I have a question for guys like Kevin Durant — when’s the last time you did a calf raise?”
DAMN. Future Philadelphia 76ers star deserves better, honestly. Talk about catching a stray bullet. Really doesn’t seem fair to bring KD into this, given the fact that he’s one of the greatest basketball players of all time but regardless, Durant was quick to respond on Twitter.
Great to see our Philly guy KD not backing down from controversy.
Although we were clear yesterday that approaching athletes while they are in public and shoving a camera in their face is super lame, I couldn’t imagine Ben Simmons having this type of dawg in him.
Durant is still looking for a way out of Brooklyn and away from Ben Simmons. Hopefully, he’ll be in Philadelphia before we know it.
