Green was recently on a podcast with Colin Cowherd (who suddenly loves Green now that they work together) when the Golden State Warriors star said that Steph Curry “got double-teamed probably seven times the amount that KD did” during the NBA Finals runs when Durant was a member of the Warriors as a way of explaining why Curry doesn’t have to prove himself any further.
Green prefaced those comments by saying Durant was “absolutely incredible” during that era. KD spent three seasons with the Warriors, going to the NBA Finals three times and winning two NBA titles.
Of course, someone asked Durant about those comments on Twitter, where he loves to hang out and interact. And naturally, he disagreed with the sentiment.
From my view of it, this is 100% false… https://t.co/of6pFJUfvi

“From my view of it, this is 100% false,” Durant said.
That’s when NBA fans made sure to note that then-Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue admitted he “blitzed” Curry when Durant and Klay Thompson were on the court during the 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals.

It appears that Green was simply trying to defend Curry from the notion that he still needs to win a Finals MVP in order to cement his legacy. However, we all know what happens when KD feels like you’ve taken a shot at him. He’s not the kind of NBA player to forgive or forget, and he’ll certainly keep letting you know on Twitter.
