Kevin Durant is obviously no stranger to beefs, and it was more of the same this week.
Durant is currently a member of the U.S. Men’s National Basketball Team.
One of his teammates on the roster is Miami Heat big man Bam Adebayo.
During a recent practice, Adebayo did something that rubbed Durant the wrong way. The Brooklyn Nets star then immediately took to Twitter to share his displeasure.
Dog seen me knock down the corner three and proceeds to work on his ball handling with the ball I green bean’d wit. Bro gotta learn some respect @Bam1of1 https://t.co/OX4YeJLa5k

Essentially Durant wanted his ball back, only for Adebayo to dismiss him.
Adebayo responded shortly thereafter.
Stop Lying @KDTrey5 . You Saw @Dame_Lillard Take Your Rock. You Just Tried To Little Bro Me https://t.co/D8itKlecs6

Obviously this little beef is much more light-hearted one than others Durant has been involved in over the past year.
Between his torching of Rachel Nichols following the Maria Taylor drama and vicious feud with a z-list celebrity, vocally going back and forth with folks online is an accepted part of the 32-year-old brand’s now.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Durant can’t also be thoughtful in the media as well. Just a few days ago, he offered an extremely insightful look into why Team USA has been struggling so badly in 2021.
Will Durant and Adebayo be able to work together and bring home gold for Team USA this year? Time will tell.
