Andre Iguodala uses a CJ McCollum tweet to prove a point to Brandon Jennings

It's mid-August and we are all bored right now.

We want the NBA regular season to arrive.

But since we can't speed the calendar up, we have to settle for some fun Twitter banter.

This time, it involved Andre Iguodala, Brandon Jennings and CJ McCollum.

It all started on Tuesday night when Jennings tweeted his Top 5 shooting guards ever, and Iguodala responded:

This led to a back-and-forth, and the following explanation:

Then on Wednesday morning, McCollum was back in the headlines (you can read about that here) -- which led to him tweeting:

Iguodala saw this tweet and assumed the four Hall of Famers McCollum was referencing were Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

Iguodala assumed correctly.

Fun stuff!

Damian Lillard has some advice for Kevin Durant and CJ McCollum

What does Damian Lillard think about the Twitter interaction between Kevin Durant and CJ McCollum?

Glad you asked.

“I saw that he went on CJ’s podcast and they went back and forth. It sounded like they were joking, so I didn’t think much of it," Lillard told Marc Spears of The Undefeated. "But when I saw that they went on Twitter, I was like, ‘All right, they have each other’s phone number. It doesn’t have to go on Twitter. Call each other, man, and get it off y’all chest.'

“It ain’t got to be on Twitter, because everyone is going to make a big thing about it and try to pit them against each other. People love drama. It doesn’t have to be all that.”

Yes, people do love drama (and content during a boring news cycle).

Durant cleared the air after Team USA practice in Las Vegas on Thursday.

On the podcast, McCollum said that he and Durant will be doing another episode -- which will include McCollum's usual co-host Jordan Schultz and Durant's manager Rich Kleiman.

Speaking of those guys...

Hopefully that podcast is being recorded this very second...

Kevin Durant busts out laughing when CJ McCollum says Blazers can win the title

CJ McCollum has his own podcast.

But you probably already knew that.

Kevin Durant was recently out in New York and convinced McCollum to fly to the Big Apple to record an episode.

One topic of conversation: DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Warriors.

McCollum and Durant had a hilarious back-and-forth that ended with Durant...

...speaking some cold-hard truth.

McCollum: "You know how I felt, bruh, I was hot."

Durant: "Why are you mad about this stuff?"

McCollum: "Bruh, I'm in the league. I'm in the Western Conference. I gotta play you m'fers all the time anyway as it is, over and over again ...

Durant: "You know you guys aren't gonna win a championship."

McCollum: "Bro, we have the team..."

At this point, Durant can't help but laugh out loud... hard.

McCollum: "We have the team, we have the capabilities, anything is possible. We can win a championship bro."

Durant: "I mean let's be honest. I like ya'll two (McCollum and Damian Lillard), you're hard to step. But I mean, come on. You can't be upset about this."

McCollum: "I can be upset because Cuz was a free agent ... he could have came to Portland ... why you gotta go there (Golden State), Cuz? And I text him. I was mad. I got on Twitter."

Durant (laughing as he talks): "Yo, get out your feelings, yo ... I suggest you just keep playing man and don't worry about what goes on at the top of things."

OH SNAP! 

McCollum: "We were right there at the top of things."

Durant: "Relax."

McCollum: "We were the third seed last year ... some unfortunate things happened in the first round."

Durant: "How'd you play? Like an 8 seed (laughing) ... you know I'm only saying this because you be shooting little shots at the Warriors and at me all the time, so this is my time to throw a little jab at you."

This is pure gold and we need more of it.
