Kevin Durant has certainly gotten the better of Giannis Antetokounmpo in the first two games of the Nets-Bucks series.
According to Jay Williams, Durant may have had something extra for Giannis because he's sick of hearing that they are comparable.
"I’ll tell you a story real quick. A couple years ago, we’re at a holiday party for KD’s business. OK? And we’re all there. Everybody’s hanging out. And I went up on TV on “Get Up” that day and said, “Giannis was destroying people in the league.” And I said, “You know what? When I think about Giannis, it’s like AD and Kevin Durant had a baby, to a degree. Size, length. I’m not saying skill set. I’m just saying the way he played.” Right? Gave the breakdown. Kevin Durant comes up to me at the club and says, “Yo, don’t you ever compare me to Giannis again. Don’t you ever do that.” I was like, “Kev, what are you talking about? Calm down. First off, I’m talking about scenarios, stylistically, the way you guys play a little bit, size, length.” He’s like, “Nah, don’t ever compare that dude to me. Don’t do that.” I felt that in his voice at that moment," the ESPN talker said.
KD denied that he said that, and killed Jay a liar in the comments.
"This is a f*cking lie. Jay Williams can NEVER speak for me, ever."
He also Tweeted this.
Mans will do anything to advance their careers in this media shit, wanting to be accepted by an industry that will dispose of you whenever they please. Keep me out all that corny ass talk about whos better and legacy and all that dumb ass shit. I don’t even talk like that— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) June 8, 2021

Do you think Jay is lying or is this a case of Kevin Durant not realizing he's not on his burning account but in real life?
