His latest interaction on Monday is sure to lead to discussion all across the basketball world.
So here's what happened:
On Sunday, ESPN's Nick Friedell wrote a feature story on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the concept he could stay with Milwaukee his whole career.
Kevin Durant provided some quotes for the article, which included: "What I would say to him (Antetokounmpo), I would tell him to play for himself ... his career is about him; it's about whatever he wants to do and however he feels is right for him...
"He's not going to stay in Milwaukee if he's not having fun playing the game."
On Monday the Instagram account "allantetokounmpo" posted the following:
Within the comments, one user said: "KD lost interest in playing with OKC because he finally realized that they weren't going to win with the subpar squad they had. So he chose to sign with a team that he knew he's win a ring with..."
One response: "Subpar lmfao the problem was westbrook. They had a good a** team."
Well folks -- Kevin Durant "liked" that comment.
Carry on with your day...
