Kevin Durant had the best game of his playoff career on Wednesday night in Cleveland, leading the Warriors to a 110-102 win over the Cavs to take a 3-0 series lead.
Durant had 43 points, a new playoff career-high, as well as 13 rebounds and seven assists as he carried the load offensively while Steph Curry and Klay Thompson struggled to find their stroke. Afterwards, one would think Durant would’ve been in a great mood given his performance, but it didn’t take all that much for an heckler (who sounds incredibly drunk) to tick off KD as he walked into his hotel
The video, via TMZ Sports, shows Durant stop and come back towards the heckler, staring him down, while the heckler — who might be the worst of all-time — yells things like “UT’s butt!” (referencing Texas, Durant’s alma mater) and “Where’s LeBron?”
It’s not exactly creative heckling or particularly good heckling, but clearly Durant is fed up with Cavs fans trying to talk smack to him. Durant’s people made sure nothing actually happened and ushered him into the hotel, which was certainly the wise thing to do.
Heckling in general is dumb, especially after the game at the team hotel, and it’s understandable that it would frustrate Durant that he can’t even escape it when looking to retire to his room for the night. However, it would probably be in his best interest to ignore it and let someone around him handle the situation, rather than acknowledging a drunk guy yelling about Texas being “butt.”
