Chris Broussard defends himself amid Twitter beef with Kevin Durant
FS1 personality Chris Broussard defended himself in a video shared on Twitter Wednesday amid a beef that has been stewing with Kevin Durant.
Durant and Broussard first got into things on Monday over some comments Broussard made on his radio show. Broussard said that the Golden State Warriors winning without the two-time Finals MVP was Durant’s “worst nightmare.” Durant, as he’s been known to do, responded to the tweet and questioned Broussard for exaggerating.
I see a little exaggeration there buddy, my worst nightmare?? U sure that this is the worst that it can get???

Broussard then went on FS1’s “Undisputed” show and shared some background to their relationship. He said Wednesday that the two have texted for hours about things. Durant took issue with that, saying Broussard doesn’t have his number.

After their back-and-forth made headlines, Broussard recorded a video to explain his side. He says he and Durant have had long personal conversations in the past and that the means for them — text message or direct message — is mostly irrelevant to the larger point that they do have a relationship.
On @kdtrey5 situation:
In the past year, I have 60+ IG & Tw DMs from KD, mostly from 3 convos initiated by him spanning 5+ hrs each.
I won’t expose them out of respect 4 KD & others I text with.
I will continue to love, respect & pray for KD – & objectively analyze his game. pic.twitter.com/PBJwG67YKa

Durant has a point. Broussard saying they’ve had long text conversations does make it seem like they have a closer relationship than they really do. But both examples of Durant’s complaining show his tendency to make a bigger deal of things than necessary.
