Game has gone head-to-head with 50 Cent, Jay Z and 40 Glocc; now the Compton rapper has a new conflict. Game is crying foul and claiming that the NBA’s Most Valuable Player, Kevin Durant, pump-faked him on a big money bet.
The Documentary MC says that he and KD made a bet last week, while Drake and basketball stars James Harden and DeMar DeRozen looked on. According to Game, he and Durant agreed that if the rapper could make a 3-point shot, he’d supply Game’s junior basketball team with approximately $20,000 worth of Nike’s KD signature sneaker.
When a TMZ reporter asked Durant if he owed the Game $20,000, the all-star forward responded: “That’s false” and said that Game was “lying.”
“We clearly said….. ’If I made the 3 from NBA range you’d supply the entire @froggallstars program with brand new Kevin Durant shoes,'” Game wrote on Instagram on Wednesday (June 11). “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,” Game continued before revealing that he chose to buy his team LeBron James’ signature Nike shoe instead.
“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,” he said, pitting the two basketball rivals against each other. “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.”
Durant took to Twitter a few hours later to clarify, saying that he told Game that he would supply his team with gear, but never made a monetary bet with the rapper. His tweet was deleted shortly after.
