Game to Kevin Durant: You're a Sore Loser

Compton rapper calls MVP out for not making good on $20,000 bet.

Published June 11, 2014

Kevin Durant may be the NBA's MVP, but he's also a "sore loser" who didn't keep his word on a $20,000 bet, according to Game

The Compton rapper says Durant promised to donate to his Frogg All Stars youth basketball league if he hit a three-pointer. Game made the shot and apparently Drake and Houston Rockets player James Harden witnessed the whole thing.

When TMZ caught up with Durant, he said he never made any bet and that Game was "lying."

Game fired off a response via Instagram early Wednesday (June 11), writing, "Now why @easymoneysniper [Durant] frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said..... If I made the 3 from NBA range you'd supply the entire @froggallstars program with brand new Kevin Durant shoes...... 120 kids, close to $200 a shoe equals about $20,000."

He urged Durant to admit to making the agreement. "It ain't that they need it [the shoes] 'cause I bought all 120 kids Lebrons out my own pocket as you can see on their Instagram," continued Game. "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."

Game's words must've struck a chord because Durant responded on Twitter a few hours later. "Aight this is it," he wrote. "I never bet the game 20k cash. I never bet him. I told him I would give his aau team kd gear. That's all." 

Bet or no bet, Durant should be able to afford to drop $20,000 on a good cause. He's No. 20 on Forbes''s "World's Highest Paid Athletes" list and has two years left on his $85 million contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
