The always reputable Zach Lowe of ESPN had reported earlier this week that Green called Durant from the Oracle Arena parking lot after the season-ending 93-89 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. In truth, Durant might have reason to say the exchange never took place, given that he was still technically under contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder at the time and any such contact may have been in violation of the NBA’s anti-tampering policy.
The eight-time All-Star has been playing somewhat coy with the media these Finals, so it’s hard to get a read on this apparent case of he said, she said.
