Kevin Durant had must-see response for demanding courtside fan
Kevin Durant had an interaction with a fan sitting courtside for Wednesday night’s Brooklyn Nets-Dallas Mavericks game that went viral.
Durant scored 23 points with 6 rebounds and 10 assists in Brooklyn’s 113-111 loss to the Mavs. He made a big 3-pointer with 10.6 seconds left to give his Nets a 1-point lead. But Spencer Dinwiddie won the game with a 3-pointer with a second left.
Late in the game, a fan sitting courtside in Brooklyn had a message for Durant.
“Durant, you gotta take this game over!” the fan said.
“You gotta shut the f— up and sit down,” Durant replied.
You can watch the video below, but beware of the bad language.
Somehow this got reported? But my wife is just like KD when I say I’m getting one more drink. pic.twitter.com/qcNZygISMm

The fan seemed to follow Durant’s instructions.
You have to love the way the referee took a peek over to see whether it was a situation that merited some sort of intervention. Luckily the official held off calling anything.
This actually is nothing new for Durant. A few years ago, we shared a video that showed him saying almost the exact same thing.
