Kevin Durant calls out Bam Adebayo for disrespectful act at Team USA practice, Heat star responds
Team USA is just days away from their first game of the tournament at the Tokyo Olympics, and yet they might still be working out the kinks. That’s what it looked like when Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant had bit of a disagreement with Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo during practice.
Kevin Durant was seen knocking down a corner triple during what looked to be a Team USA shootaround. Fully expecting the ball back after hitting the shot, the former MVP called out to Adebayo, who claimed that the one in his possession was a different ball. Try and see for yourself in the clip below:

Given how the camera wasn’t exactly getting every inch of the action, it’s tough to tell who was right. We might be getting some instant replay installed at Team USA practices going forward if this keeps happening. KD saw the clip on Twitter and called out Bam once again for not respecting his green bean.

Bam Adebayo didn’t take long to respond to his Team USA teammate. The Heat star clapped back at KD claiming that the former MVP is definitely capping.

In all likelihood, this is probably all just light-hearted fun. But in the event that it’s not, let’s just hope Team USA’s stars figure all this stuff out before the games start to matter.
