Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant calls out Shannon Sharpe for lying about him

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant called out Shannon Sharpe on Monday for lying about him.

Durant commented on a video that showed Sharpe attributing a quote to Durant. The quote supposedly had Durant saying if he beat LeBron James in the NBA Finals, and James is considered the “GOAT,” what does that make KD?

Here’s the video of Sharpe talking on Monday’s edition of “Undisputed.”

The problem is Sharpe, who co-hosts the show, was quoting a fake quote attributed to Durant.

Here’s the quote that Sharpe must have seen, which is recognized as being a fake quote.

After the video clip was brought to KD’s attention, he called out Sharpe.

“Y’all drunk uncle out here lying again. When did I say this [Shannon Sharpe] ???????????????????????????,” Durant tweeted.

Sharpe wouldn’t be the first media member caught using that quote.

This nice thing is Durant actually called out the criticism from his real account, unlike what he’s done in the past.

Shannon Sharpe blocks Kevin Durant on Twitter over fake quote drama

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant called out Shannon Sharpe on Monday for lying about him on TV, and the former NFL star does not want to hear anymore about it — at least on social media.

During Monday’s edition of “The Undisputed” on FS1, Sharpe mistakenly attributed a quote to Durant. The quote supposedly had Durant saying if he beat LeBron James in the NBA Finals, and James is considered the “GOAT,” what does that make KD?

The problem is Sharpe was alluding to a fake quote. Durant ripped Sharpe for it by calling him a “drunk uncle” in a tweet on Monday, and he kept chirping at Sharpe on Tuesday morning in an attempt to get him to respond.

Sharpe eventually responded and said he’s happy to talk to Durant but refuses to go back and forth with him on social media. K.D. didn’t accept that and said he has no problem hashing things out publicly since Sharpe used his TV platform to attribute a fake quote to Durant.

“We can talk in front of everybody, it ain’t that serious Shannon, u go on tv in front of everybody pushing fake s— but now u wanna talk in private??? Why u lying on tv Shannon???” Durant responded (edited by LBS for profanity).

Eventually, Sharpe blocked Durant.

Durant has a reputation for being thin-skinned, and deservedly so. He has been known to defend himself against trolls using fake Twitter accounts, but you can’t blame him for being annoyed this time. It’s convenient for Sharpe to use a fake quote to publicly bash K.D. and then run and hide. Even if Sharpe stands by his narrative, he should acknowledge that he was duped.
