“Trashtalking” in order between Kevin Durant and… Theo Pinson

When Kevin Durant put down Josh Green, with a shoulder blow when passing the screen of the Mavs player, he began by exchanging a few words with the Texan. Then the Nets superstar quickly returned his attention to the opposing bench, cheering and continuing to talk vehemently.

The scene occurred five minutes from the end of the meeting which was played in Dallas, while the visitors still had three possessions behind (85-78), before widening the gap by playing free throws. Penalized with a personal foul and a technical foul, “KD” was targeting an opposing substitute in particular: Theo Pinson. Now known to be a service agitator, the former Nets player has not stopped gesticulating from the bench while “trashtalking” the flagship player opposite.

Told him he was gonna have to turn into Magic Johnson tonight and pass the ball », reports the interested party to ESPN in reference to the defensive treatment reserved by the Mavs on “KD”. The latter was indeed taken two for a good part of the evening. The winger had to work a lot to get good shots and finally “settled” with 26 points – his lowest total of the season (that is to say!) – at 10/20 on shots.

“I had an amazing time”

After the meeting, Kevin Durant assures that he wasn’t upset at the time. ” I was having an incredible time, an awesome time (journalists laugh). I love talking bullshit to fans, to other teams, to coaches. They feel it’s healthy. It’s not like I was pissed off enough to fight Theo, or that I resented him for talking to me. I was having an incredible time, there was no better place for me at this time in my life. »

The Nets player even appreciated this reference to Magic Johnson.

Nobody in this league wants to let me play one-on-one or go into my preferred zones. So they will send three or four players on me, go into zone when I have the ball. And I was like, ‘That’s how strong I am. It’s a simple fact, when you pay so much attention to a player, in a team sport, it shows how strong I am. So he understood. »

An observation coming from one of the best attackers in history finally validated… by Theo Pinson himself.

I said to him like ‘Yeah, it is. That’s why we do double takes. Don’t be shocked.’ I tickled him. You know how it goes. But he’s my guy. He’s my guy. »
