Game Clarifies Kevin Durant Diss

Compton rapper says the $20,000 bet was a "misunderstanding."

Published June 13, 2014

Game is backtracking on his "sore loser" comments about Kevin Durant, clarifying that the two had a "miscommunication" and have worked out their differences. 

Earlier in the week, Game blasted Durant on Twitter for calling him a liar about a $20,000 bet. The deal was, if Game made a three-pointer, KD would donate to So-Call Frogg All-Stars, the Compton rapper's AAU league team for children.  

It looks like their discrepancy was over wording. Durant never said anything about actually giving him money, the plan was to gift the team with shoes and other gear. Game has since explained that the MVP didn't renege on his offer. "He wasn't saying that he wasn't going to donate the shoes, they're pretty much his shoes and he gets them free," Game told TMZ Sports. "He was saying that he never said $20,000 cash.… I never said that we bet $20,000 cash, I just kinda did the numbers."

Durant isn't allowed to bet on basketball games because he's a professional athlete. "The rules are that they're not to gamble on basketball, which is very understandable," Game said. "Once we talked and hashed it out, he did say he was gon' hold up his end of the bargain."

Game launched the team almost three months ago. It is named in honor of his slain friend, Michael Reshard Jr., whose nickname was "Lil Frogg." Tyson Chandler, Nick Young and other professional athletes have come out to speak with the Frogg All-Stars. Getting Durant on board was on their "wish list," Game said.
