Nets’ Kevin Durant roasts Team USA teammate, Bulls guard Zach LaVine on IG live at the Olympics
Durant went on Instagram live to document his Olympic experience and found LaVine as his favorite roast subject. KD poked fun at LaVine’s defense, giving Bulls head coach Billy Donovan a shoutout and a promise that he’ll have the high-flying guard finally play some defense.
Kevin Durant was just as unforgiving on LaVine for having no access to phone service.
“Zach LaVine needѕ minuteѕ on his prepaid iPhօne, so he can’t get on. He’ll have to correѕpond through mine. How you come overѕeaѕ… You’re a max plaуer in the NBA and уou ain’t got service on уour phօne. Get that international plan before уou get on the plane.”

KD had jokes for LaVine, Bam Adebayo, and Jerami Grant at the Olympics 😂

It’s all fun and games for now among Team USA’s players. But when the real action begins, expect Durant and LaVine to be fully focused on the hardwood.
Team USA was placed under high scrutiny after dropping their first two exhibition contests against Nigeria and Australia. Though they managed to regain their composure to close off their pre-Olympic preparation against a formidable Spanish squad, Durant and co. will remain under the microscope.
It’s the onus of being a bunch of superstars in a traditional powerhouse. The USA dropped from the top spot in FIBA’s world rankings, but they’re still the most dangerous team out in the field.
