Still reeling from the effects of the Based God's curse, you would think Kevin Durant would know better than to go around drawing the ire of hip-hop provocateurs. That's what he appears to have done, though, after allegedly refusing to honor a $20,000 bet with The Game.
The backstory here is that Durant and a few other NBA players were at some sort of event also attended by The Game, an L.A. rapper of somewhat ill repute. While at this event, Durant allegedly announced that he would donate $20,000 to The Game's youth-basketball team if The Game hit a three from NBA distance. Here is video of the supposed completion of that challenge, as depicted on the rapper's Instagram page:
And the accompanying caption:

TMZ caught up with Kevin Durant and asked him about the bet, and Durant called The Game a liar. Is The Game upset about this? Yes, he is upset about this. This morning he posted a screen shot of the TMZ story to his Instagram page, along with this caption:
Now why @easymoneysniper frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said..... "If I made the 3 from NBA range you'd supply the entire @froggallstars program with brand new Kevin Durant shoes"...... 120 kids, close to $200 a shoe equals about $20,000..... How am I lying ???? Just say you a sore loser & you ain't wanna help the kids.... It ain't that they need it cause I bought all 120 kids Lebrons out my own pocket as you can see on their Instagram.. But I thought it would be kool for them to meet you & be able to ball in your shoes especially since they look up to you & I made the shot as WE AGREED... @champagnepapi was right there, so was @jharden13 @trim_skit & @Demar_Derozan But don't sweat it champ, we'll still support you & I'll go buy them myself just cause they mean that much to me..... 1 love - The Game #FroggAllstars#NikeBasketball#iGotTheKids#itsTooHardForSomePeopleToKeepIt100#MyOldestSonsFavoritePlayer#WhyWouldILieAboutSomethingThatsForTheKids#WhatDidiHaveToGain#PeopleHeardWhatWasSaid#AintImportantTho#NoLoveLost#illTellThemTheShoesCameFromYouAnyway#TheyWontKnowTheDifference#SadThingIsTheyreYourShoesAndItWouldntveCostYouADimeToGetThemForTheKids @TMZ
Honestly, this whole post was just an excuse to post The Game's Instagram captions, because these are the best captions ever.
#SadThingIsTheyreYourShoesAndItWouldntveCostYouADimeToGetThemForTheKids is a hashtag for the ages.
