Well, Kevin Durant and King James might be rivals on the court - most recently in the NBA Finals two months ago - but the two see eye-to-eye when it comes to their disdain for Trump. His return to Twitter has been magnificent. "A lot of teams have gone through this before", Durant told ESPN. LeBron's camp has denied that report, but regardless, Durant falls into the "LeBron is too legendary to trade" camp, which may just be a front for the "I don't want LeBron in the Western Conference" camp. He and Durant also have a prior relationship, as the National Basketball Association star appeared in one of the rapper's music videos two years ago.
It's no secret that James and owner Dan Gilbert aren't the best of friends, ever since Gilbert thrashed James in a letter following James' decision to leave Cleveland for Miami in 2010. After losing the National Basketball Association championship and seeing Cavs chairman Dan Gilbert fire General Manager David Griffin, the 32-year-old is reported to be frustrated and can opt out of his contract next summer. This is the KD that claps back at those criticizing him on Twitter, crushes Knicks fans' dreams, and openly discusses why LeBron James can't be traded by the Cavs with Lil Dicky. James, 32, can choose to become a free agent next year since he has a player option for 2018-19.
But Durant is right. LeBron holds all the cards as the most beloved man in Cleveland. So in the end, Durant and Lil Dicky's argument doesn't really matter.
Yeah, the Cavs DO have a knack for making out like bandits in the lottery, now don't they?
