It takes a lot to get Kevin Durant, one of the league’s most mild-mannered superstars, riled up. But Chris Bosh knows the trick. As you can see in the video above, Durant and Bosh exchanged words in the first quarter on Sunday shortly after Durant’s teammate, James Harden, drew a foul on Bosh.
“He was telling (James) Harden to dunk on me,” Bosh told reporters after the game, according to The Oklahoman. “He said, ‘dunk the next one.’ I expressed that, no, he’s not going to dunk that. And he expressed, yes he is. We just kind of went back and forth. I don’t think it was anything to get a tech over. It was just talking.”
It may have just been talking, but Durant didn’t appreciate Bosh’s interruption.
“I was talking to my teammate and he decided he wanted to put his two cents into it,” Durant said. “I’m a quiet guy, a laid back guy. But I’m not going to let nobody talk trash to me. He’s on a good team now so he thinks he can talk a little bit. But it’s a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he’s one of them.”
“I’m no punk,” Durant added. “I wasn’t even talking to him, first-off. He decided to butt in. I’m not just going to let that slide, especially in our house. He’s not one of those guys that I look at and say he has a rep for talking back to guys or always getting into it. He’s a nice guy. He’s not one of those guys. So I’m not going to let that type of person say something to me like that.”
The technical foul was Durant’s first of the year, and just the fifth of his career.
