It appears to be like like ESPN analyst Jay Williams and Nets star Kevin Durant have some beef.
And all of it stems from a narrative that Williams advised about Durant and Giannis Antekounmpo.
Within the aftermath of the Nets’ 125-86 blowout win over the Bucks, Williams recounted a time when Durant advised him to not ever examine him to the Greek Freak. Here is what Williams mentioned of the encounter on ESPN’s “Get Up” Tuesday morning.
A few years in the past we’re at a vacation social gathering and I got here on this present and we did a section the place we had Anthony Davis and we had Kevin Durant. I mentioned, ‘You recognize, if Anthony Davis and KD would have a child, the similarities physically-wise could be like Giannis.’ I am going to the vacation social gathering, Kevin Durant comes as much as me and says, ”Yo, do not you ever, ever examine me to Giannis. Do not you ever examine me to Giannis.’
I say, ‘KD, what are you speaking about? I used to be simply speaking about similarities physicality-wise, dimension, size.’ He is like, ‘No. Do not you ever examine me to Giannis.’
So, after I see that matchup, you already know what that matchup says to me? That is one thing private for Kevin Durant. That is who he is attacking every day. ‘Trigger that is been in his mind as a result of folks have talked about Giannis being on the identical stage. That is the form of depth you are seeing on this rivalry.
The story was all in good enjoyable, proper?
Properly, not in line with Durant. The truth is, he claimed it is flat out unfaithful, as he mentioned in a since-deleted Instagram remark that Williams’ story is “a f—ing lie” and mentioned that Williams can “NEVER converse” for him.
Along with that, the 32-year-old ahead took to Twitter and launched an NSFW subtweet at Williams and advised him to “Maintain me out all that corny ass speak about whos (sic) higher.”
Mans will do something to advance their careers on this media shit, desirous to be accepted by an business that can get rid of you every time they please. Maintain me out all that corny ass speak about whos higher and legacy and all that dumb ass shit. I don’t even speak like that

Evidently, Twitter loved Durant’s makes an attempt to take down Williams and poked enjoyable on the analyst.
Both KD didn’t say this and Jay Williams is mendacity or Jay Willams went on TV and dimed out a private convo to make a headline on TV
Both approach it’s a foul look https://t.co/jWHKg0vYld

How will Williams reply? That can presumably be the subsequent a part of this saga.
But when he doubles down, count on his budding feud with Durant to escalate.
