Baller Beef: Kevin Durant Says The Game Is Lying About $20,000 Bet + The Game Responds [VIDEO]
UPDATE: The Game posted on his IG that everything is peace between him and KD and that it was all a big misunderstanding:
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 - The Game #froggallstars #therobinhoodproject #nikebasketball #weready #aau #KD #MvP #ThankYou
Kevin Durant told TMZ yesterday that the claim Game made on his instagram that the Durant bet him $20,000 is false.
Last week Game posted a video of him making a 3-point shot from NBA range with the claim that Durant had to donate $20,000 to Game’s AAU basketball team, the Frog-Allstars. Yesterday, TMZ caught Kevin Durant after a run and asked him if he really owed Game $20,000, which Durant said was false. Game responded today with an Instagram post captioned the following:
"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 ???? 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….. 1 love – The Game #FroggAllstars #NikeBasketball #iGotTheKids #itsTooHardForSomePeopleToKeepIt100 #MyOldestSonsFavoritePlayer #WhyWouldILieAboutSomethingThatsForTheKids #WhatDidiHaveToGain #PeopleHeardWhatWasSaid #AintImportantTho #NoLoveLost #illTellThemTheShoesCameFromYouAnyway #TheyWontKnowTheDifference #SadThingIsTheyreYourShoesAndItWouldntveCostYouADimeToGetThemForTheKids @TMZ"
So evidently the bet was over free shoes for the team rather than $20,000 cash? Keep an eye out to see if Durant makes good on his promise or further refutes Game’s claims. Check out the original video below:
Earlier this morning, Kevin Durant tweeted this in response to The Game:
Aight this is it. I never bet the game 20k cash. I never bet him. I told him I would give his aau team kd gear. That's all.
