Kevin Durant blasts Shannon Sharpe for sharing fake news about him: 'You go on tv in front of everybody pushing fake s**t'

Kevin Durant didn't take it too kindly after some of the recent comments Shannon Sharpe made on his show Undisputed with Skip Bayles. Sharpe went on a rant, saying that Kevin Durant stated he is no longer chasing championship rings after joining the Brooklyn Nets. The thing that bothers Durant the most is the quote Sharpe used on the show that apparently Durant never said even though Sharpe quoted him and made a story out of it.

If LeBron James is the GOAT, I beat the GOAT twice, hit the shots in his building, what does that make me.

Durant went on his Twitter account and actively called out Sharpe for lying and saying things that weren't true. That resulted in Sharpe blocking Durant on social media, which added more fuel to the fire, and Durant called him sensitive. Apparently, Sharpe reached out to Durant to discuss everything in a private and civilized way, but Durant is not buying it.

That is not the first time the media members get into an altercation with the players and is most definitely not the last time. These types of confrontations occur pretty frequently, and this time if Durant is right and if Sharpe misquoted him to make a story out of it, that is unprofessional, and he has every right to be frustrated. We'll see if he accepts Sharpe's apology and they squash everything, but knowing Durant, he will probably not let Sharpe get off the hook so easily.
