It was only a matter of time until these two got into it.
Best I can tell, the dispute started when The Game posted this video:
Bet Kevin Durant a.k.a. @EasyMoneySniper$20,000 that he’d have to donate to the@froggallstars & play wit #LaFamilia in the#DrewLeague if I made an NBA 3 pointer all net & my hittas @jharden13 @Demar_Derozan &@ChampagnePapi was right there to witness it all… I guess that’s that ! KD must ain’t get the memo….. My jumper wetter than stripper p%$$¥ !!!!!!!!!!#BloodMoney #OvO #LaFamilia#itMustBeTheShoes #AirYeezys #GiveMeA10Day#iCanGuardLebron#WithMichaelJordans20YearOldBody#MyJLikeJakeShuttlesworth #KeepTheChange#DontBowWowMeAndNeverPay #ItsForTheKids#GameLoveTheKids #FroggAllstars #AAU #Nike#Basketball
Holy hashtags. To translate, The Game says he bet Durant he’d make that 3-pointer. If The Game made the shot, Durant would donate $20,000 to The Game’s youth basketball team. According to The Game, James Harden, DeMar DeRozan and Drake all witnessed it.
Durant, via TMZ, said, “He’s lying.”
The Game went the opposite route in his reply – both in his message and its conciseness:
Now why @easymoneysniper frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said….. “If I made the 3 from NBA range you’d supply the entire @froggallstarsprogram 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 @TMZFollow
I don’t know. They’re arguing about two different things. The Game is claiming Durant agreed to donate about $20,000 worth of shoes to the rapper’s youth team (even though the math is a little dicey on that), and Durant is denying he bet cash but says he’ll give the team some unspecified amount of gear.
In conclusion, ¯_(ツ)_/¯.
