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.

Suns troll Warriors' Draymond Green over $50K fine for Booker remarks

Suns troll Warriors' Draymond Green over $50K fine for Booker remarks

Draymond Green had some choice words about the Phoenix Suns and star Devin Booker during a recent appearance as an NBA analyst on TNT.

"It's not good for him. It's not good for his career," Green said. "... They gotta get Book out of Phoenix. I need my man to go somewhere where he can play great basketball all the time and win, because he's that type of player."

After the NBA announced on Sunday that Green would face a $50,000 fine for tampering with his comments, the Suns' Twitter account decided to have some fun with the situation while sharing a highlight video of Booker.

Green never has been one to shy away from speaking his mind, and also already has gone back and forth with longtime media nemesis Charles Barkley during other appearances on TNT's NBA coverage.

Don't be surprised if Draymond is a little more careful with his words going forward during his on-camera appearances.

Steph Curry offers to caddie for Collin Morikawa after PGA title win

Steph Curry offers to caddie for Collin Morikawa after PGA title win

The 2020 PGA Championship from Harding Park was the first major of the season to be completed without fans, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage across the United States. 

But among the select group of people in attendance for Sunday's final round was golf aficionado and Warriors star Steph Curry.

Curry and the Warriors weren't one of the 22 NBA teams invited to the league's restart of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, as it has been a quiet offseason so far for Golden State.

Steph even joined the post-round press conference, asking the first question of Collin Morikawa, the Cal graduate who won the event by two shots. 

"If you need a caddie for the next three months, I'm available."

Curry offered to caddie for Morikawa, who despite spending his college career in Berkeley, proudly exclaimed that he's not a Warriors fan (Morikawa is a Los Angeles native).

The Warriors star recently played in the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, finishing fourth among the celebrity-laden field.
