Nets’ Kevin Durant absolutely blasts ‘drunk uncle’ Shannon Sharpe
Kevin Durant is back at it again with his Twitter fingers. The Brooklyn Nets superstar took to social media to blast everyone’s favorite ‘drunk uncle’ aka Shannon Sharpe for seemingly misquoting something Durant had previously mentioned. Durant wasn’t letting this one slip, as Sharpe clearly was trying to spark a beef between him and Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.
“Ya’ll drunk uncle out here lying again. When did I say this @ShannonSharpe?” Durant tweeted.
Shannon Sharpe: "KD said if LeBron James is the GOAT, I beat the GOAT twice, hit the shot in his building, what does that make me?"

Kevin Durant was responding to Sharpe’s comments about him and James where apparently, at least according to Sharpe, Durant was throwing shade at LeBron and his GOAT status. According to Sharpe, Durant mentioned that “LeBron James is the GOAT, I beat the GOAT twice, hit the shot in his building, what does that make me?”
Kevin Durant quickly took control of the narrative before things were taken out of context and clapped back the way he knew best, via Twitter. The former MVP immediately called out Sharpe for his inaccurate comments to suggest that this is clearly all made up.
This is not the first time these two personalities butt heads. Just last month, Sharpe called out Durant on Instagram after the Nets acquired Blake Griffin to add to their stacked line-up. Durant wasn’t having that one either and jumped on the comments section to sarcastically apologize to Sharpe. That wasn’t the first, either.
Obviously, with the way these two approach their respective crafts, it won’t be the last time Kevin Durant will be sparring with Sharpe – at least online.
