Portland’s CJ McCollum calls Kevin Durant soft, prompting Twitter fight, National Basketball Association rivalry

Kevin Durant continues fighting back against criticism ‘I’m just somebody who is tired of holding shit

After winning back-to-back National Basketball Association championship titles, Kevin Durant made a decision to opt out of the final year of his contract with the Golden State Warriors to become an unrestricted free agent. Just sip some champagne in between your two NBA Finals MVP trophies and enjoy your success before it's time to get to work on that three-peat. I'm in the Western Conference.

"If you have something to say, don't get mad because I say something". I just did your (expletive) podcast. You catch feelings, I call you out on it, and I'm the sensitive one? "I think it's gonna make his book even more interesting when it's done".

Durant: What did you think it was? So what's the problem if I got something to say? When I'm on my phone in the middle and in between practices, of course I'm going to respond.

Dumoulin 'hopes' but sees Tour win impossible
The incident resulted in a fifteen minute pause, but riders soon continued the remaining 192km of the stage. He was cleared of doping five days before the Tour.

They were just on a podcast together and then this happened. Area fans may remember McCollum for scoring 30 points against Duke in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and leading No. 15 seeded Lehigh to an improbable first-round upset of the No. 2 seeded Blue Devils in 2012. Like an 8 seed (laughing) you know I'm only saying this because you be shooting little shots at the Warriors and at me all the time, so this is my time to throw a little jab at you.

Headshot. If anything, Durant was too kind to McCollum. The way Durant sees it, everybody else can take potshots at will.

I mean, Durant's not wrong.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan says can't wait to play with Borussia band at Arsenal
Ramsey captained Arsenal against Atlético, with the match finishing 1-1 in normal time before the La Liga club won 3-1 on penalties.

Finally, McCollum tried to put an end to all of this by tweeting there was no feud with Durant. Greatness is rare, it's different, and people don't like different, so I get it. During those times, the Lakers had the capability to create enough salary cap space to give James and Durant maximum contracts. But this time, it's because we're finding out he had multiple Warriors employees anxious because they were unsure if he was going to re-sign with the team. "Snakes in the grass boy I tell ya", Durant tweeted.

McCollum: "I can be upset because Cuz was a free agent, which means he could've - this is also why I was upset - he could've came to Portland".
