Kevin Durant is an NBA champion now, so his cupcake now has a special treat on top. The superstar’s reputation took a significant hit when he left the Oklahoma City Thunder to play for Golden State, but now that he’s an Finals MVP and won a title he’s embracing the “cupcake” label that was assigned to him by Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook famously trolled Durant with Fourth of July cupcakes last summer just after he left town for the greener pastures of Golden State. Thunder fans joined in on the fun with cupcake costumes and shirts of their own, but as Durant and the Warriors kept winning, they embraced the cupcake moniker with a few trolls of their own. He put the proverbial cherry on top of the cupcake to make it clear that he’s in on the joke.
Yes, that’s a championship ring topping the cupcake on his hat. There really isn’t much more you can say about it: No matter what fans will say about his toughness or reputation — cupcake or not — he’s a champion.
Durant has gone after trolls on Twitter this summer and even the newspapers in the Bay Area are on his side these days. It’s clear that his reputation in Oklahoma City isn’t going to change anytime soon, but this might be his best trolling yet.
