The feud between CJ McCollum and Kevin Durant sparked on Twitter will likely be rehashed all offseason long, but the two exchanging Twitter barbs and chopping it up on a podcast is all relatively harmless in the grand scheme of things. It became a talking point as the exchange came out of nowhere and involved two upper-level competitors.
Kevin Durant says he’s being his true self as a member of the Warriors, and his true self sure loves to talk trash. The two-time Finals MVP made headlines by going on CJ McCollum’s podcast and proceeding to rip the host and his Trail Blazers, flat-out telling McCollum that his team has no chance to win the title next season. Once that clip made the rounds, McCollum likened Durant joining the Warriors to a gang member joining a rival gang on Twitter, and KD wasn’t about to let that slide.
In a recent trailer for the upcoming NBA 2K19 video game, Durant can be seen blocking a shot by McCollum, possibly taking inspiration from their exchange.
