Kevin Durant is always concerned about the smoke when it comes towards him. Scottie Pippen felt the need to say that Durant is not at LeBron James’ level and that he “needs to learn” after the Brooklyn Nets were knocked out in the second round of the NBA playoffs.
Durant heard of the criticism and responded. He toasted Pippen over the infamous Toni Kukoc incident (Pippen refused to go into the game because he was upset when the last Kukoc shot was given because of him).
Durant refers to Game 3 in the 1994 postseason series between the Bulls and the Knicks. Pippen is known to have skipped the last game of the game because it wasn’t designed for him
Pippen was wrong about getting off his team back then, and he’s wrong calling Durant now.
