The Warriors won 110-102 over the Cleveland Cavaliers, but that wasn’t enough to keep Kevin Durant chill last night.
After the win, Durant was making his way into the Cleveland hotel that was hosting the Warriors, and some hecklers got under his skin. In this video from TMZ Sports, Cav fans can be heard yelling “UT’s butt” and asking, “Where LeBron at?”
UT is of course University Of Texas, where Durant played for a season, averaging 25.8 points, 11.1 rebounds, was named National College Player of the Year, and even made it to the second round of March Madness.
After one of the guys standing outside the hotel yells “KD, you suck!” Durant stops in his tracks and turns around. When he starts to approach the guys filming him, one of his handlers quickly grabs him and makes sure he keeps walking toward the hotel’s front door.
Durant shouldn’t have much to be mad about, as he’s the one who led the Warriors to take a commanding 3-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. Not only did he score a game-high 43 points, but none of his other teammates scored more than 11 points each. KD also made a clutch three-pointer with 50 seconds left to put his team ahead by six. On the other side of the ball was Rodney Hood, who finally got some serious minutes in the finals and took full advantage by scoring 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting.
KD won the finals MVP last year, and if he keeps having performances like this without splash brothers Steph Curry or Klay Thompson stepping up, he might just repeat.
