This saga had everything:

It was quite juicy.

And now it’s over.

Durant (whose Instagram handle is @easymoneysniper) and The Game have resolved their feud.

The Game:

Had a conversation with @easymoneysniper this morning & we both agreed that there was a miscommunication between the middle party which was “TMZ” & that the way the camera man presented it to him was as if he bet me $20,000 cash which wasn’t the case…. We agreed that if I hit the 3 point shot he would get KD gear & his kicks for all the kids in our @froggallstars organization which is close to 130 children…. 130 kids at a price of maybe $150 a shoe & gear after tax equals close to $20,000 give or take so that’s where that # came from. When I woke up & had multiple texts & calls saying KD called me a liar on TMZ, I acted immediately in clearing things up on my end on my page & didn’t have a # on @easymoneysniper to clear it up privately which is what I should’ve done because the situation that was meant to be friendly & charitable to the kids & is now blown out of proportion…. But again, after talking to KD this am he again agreed to get all the kids his kicks & KD gear & also stated he was taken back by the $20,000 cash because that wasn’t what was agreed on by us….. It was a friendly bet that was only purely beneficial to the kids in our program & I’m glad we straightened it out in the end & I personally told @easymoneysniper my bad for jumping the gun due to what I read on TMZ this am. It was truly a miscommunication.. I could’ve chose my words a bit wiser & made it a little more clear…. So on behalf of all the kids, myself & the@froggallstars organization, we want to thank him again for looking out for our kids & our fast growing program, it’s very much appreciated – The Game#froggallstars #therobinhoodproject #nikebasketball#weready #aau #KD #MvP #ThankYou

Durant reposted that, and I think we can safely assume a re-post is an endorsement in this case. The real winners are the kids.

Now if only Durant can make peace with Lil B.

    The Game?

    Imagine telling people to no longer call you by your first name. From now on please refer to me as “The Game”

    The people at TMZ are just the worst. Instead of following celebrities around and hounding them to say something controversial, how about you get a real job

    im confused on how TMZ caused this , and Game tweeted his frustration about Durant!!!! Excuses

    I would rather be a Nazi than a TMZ reporter (not actually, but TMZ is the scum of the earth)

    Why am I commenting on this story?

    • sportsfan18 - Jun 13, 2014 at 5:42 PM

      cause you’re still crying about the Heat…

      • antistratfordian - Jun 13, 2014 at 6:29 PM

        Maybe that’s it….

        Wait… nope… that’s not it.

    I smell a Nobel Peace prize coming…

    They threw TMZ under the bus and saved the day…

    That post makes the Game seem like a levelheaded & ok dude. But he’s still a “gangsta rapper.” However, his first album was very good & I don’t even like rap that much.

    Wait,the initial rant was posted by him. How is it TMZ’s fault? I’m sure KD saw his marketing potential slide a bit,told him to shut it or get nothing and now a “a flowery” apology (whilst keeping his lol “street cred” intact) from Sir Game. Durant should cut ties with this dude.

    Personally, I’m nervous for the 130 kids in his care. What kind of role model is he?
