Last week, The Game put this video up on Instagram and said that he had bet Kevin Durant $20,000 — to be donated to the rapper’s AAU team — that he’d make the NBA 3-pointer. Game hit the shot, and claimed that James Harden, DeMar DeRozen and Drake were on-hand as witnesses.
“That’s false,” Durant responded when TMZ asked him about the bet. “He’s lying.”
In response, Game posted a screenshot the TMZ story with this caption:
Now why @easymoneysniper frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said….. “If I made the 3 from NBA range you’d supply the entire @froggallstars program with brand new Kevin Durant shoes”…… 120 kids, close to $200 a shoe equals about $20,000….. How am I lying ???? Just say you a sore loser & you ain’t wanna help the kids…. It ain’t that they need it cause I bought all 120 kids Lebrons out my own pocket as you can see on their Instagram.. But I thought it would be kool for them to meet you & be able to ball in your shoes especially since they look up to you & I made the shot as WE AGREED… @champagnepapi was right there, so was @jharden13 @trim_skit & @Demar_Derozan But don’t sweat it champ, we’ll still support you & I’ll go buy them myself just cause they mean that much to me….. 1 love – The Game #FroggAllstars #NikeBasketball #iGotTheKids #itsTooHardForSomePeopleToKeepIt100 #MyOldestSonsFavoritePlayer #WhyWouldILieAboutSomethingThatsForTheKids #WhatDidiHaveToGain #PeopleHeardWhatWasSaid #AintImportantTho #NoLoveLost #illTellThemTheShoesCameFromYouAnyway #TheyWontKnowTheDifference #SadThingIsTheyreYourShoesAndItWouldntveCostYouADimeToGetThemForTheKids @TMZ
If The Game really wanted Durant to give the sneakers to the kids, this probably isn’t the best way to go about it. We eagerly anticipate James Harden’s emphatic “no comment” in a few hours.
