NBA fans around the world were shocked to watch Kevin Durant lose to Nick Wright after his team’s OT loss to the Milwaukee Bucks 119-120. Wright, who is usually known for his blunt, honest and rigid attitude towards players and teams, certainly didn’t see the anger emanating from the Brooklyn Nets marquee. It reached a boiling point when Durant publicly called Wright a “pawn.”

Former MVP Kevin Durant, 33, missed two winning shots against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, prompting Nick Wright to tweet that the former had slipped back to second-best status.

“I have a legitimate feeling for KD… he had to be second best to LeBron for a decade and in the MOMENT he could have passed LeBron, Giannis passed him. 2. High school player. 2nd choice in the draft. 2nd Best Player in the NBA for Life. Real terrible luck.”

Nick Wright reacts to Kevin Durant calling him a pawn

Kevin Durant had an immediate answer. Clearly disliking the remarks, he decided to meet Wright for his blunt opinion.

Nick Wright has certainly been very critical of the Brooklyn Nets this season. He admitted his tweet about Kevin Durant being second best of his entire career was a bit mean. However, he also said the two-time NBA champion believed some of what he said was true, which led to the spat.

Wright spoke about Durant while discussing the First Things First banter: “My reaction is KD replied because what I said is true. And I’m sure he has a great life. I know he does. He is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He was an incredible businessman. He was very charitable.

“All of those things are wonderful, but as a competitor it must hurt that someone who could end up being the, I don’t know, 13th greatest player in the history of the game is never going to have a single lonely year as the best player in the League and what Giannis (Antetokounmpo) did to him now mirrors exactly what LeBron (James) did to him before he went to Golden State.”
