Unlike 99 percent of Twitter, my initial reaction to Peyton Manning torching Kevin Durant with a Final Five joke was, “Dude’s just acting out there, right?” I texted BC Joe and he seemed to agree, but you know we still had to take advantage of the moment and give you guys some NSFWBD reactions:
KD has to lighten up a little bit. Laugh some. Let it out. He’s always taking things too serious. If Peyton comes at you with a joke about joining the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, let out a laugh. Own it. Use it as motivation.
Shade for sure, but come on… it’s James Harden (10-point effort in an elimination game) and CP3 (never been past the second round). The Rockets could add Carmelo Anthony or Paul George and everyone would still pick the Warriors easily.
Michael Strahan Tagging Along on Rodman’s Next North Korea trip?
That’s a possibility, at least according to Rodman. We would be entering real life “The Interview” territory if this happens.Dennis Rodman plans to return to North Korea in August and has invited “Good Morning America” anchor Michael Strahan to go with him. “He very aggressively pushed Michael to join him on the trip. He told him it’s just like every other country,” an insider told Page Six after Strahan landed a controversial interview with Rodman following his return from the country’s capital, Pyongyang. “He hasn’t done a hard news interview like this before and he did a really great job. He was focused and his tone was great,” an insider told us of Strahan. How crazy would it be if two former athletes were the people who brokered peace between the US and NK?
What a Father’s Day for Kevin Durant. (Does he have children? I know zero about him off the court.) He spent part of his day arguing with an Oklahoma chick over the news she dropped that KD likes when chicks rip farts in his face. I mean, you can’t let that slide without a comment even though you’re in the middle of celebrating a championship, right?
The chick mentioned something about some chick at Coyote Ugly in OKC, farts, KD, etc. I assume this is just a story being passed around OKC by chicks while they’re at a nail salon or while they’re getting their hair done. It’s not like they’re talking weather with their stylist like us guys do. Think about that. You go into an OKC Great Clips and hypothetically the conversation turns to KD enjoying a nasty fart in his face.
Just mindblowing stuff, right?
But here we are with KD spending like two hours of his night arguing it out with Kaylee and a bunch of other people over rumors.
That’s the sign of a guy who wants to dick slap OKC with his Larry and that MVP trophy.
How weak was Kevin Durant’s decision to bail on the Thunder and form a superteam on the Warriors? So weak that “Jeopardy” of all programs fired a direct shot at KD before tonight’s Game 5 with this clue:
Tonight on Jeopardy, Tucker knew all about Kevin Durant leaving the Thunder and joining the Warriors
Are Rihanna and Kevin Durant currently engaged in a bitter feud? Probably not, honestly, but whatever was going down between them at the NBA Finals game on Thursday night was extremely entertaining. The singer and Bates Motel actress attended Game 1 in the finals series at Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA, where the LeBron James superfan cheered on the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors. She supported #23 at the start of the game by dabbing courtside and even told off a Warriors fan complaining about her blocking their view. It was great:
Amazing. Rihanna bows to LeBron then hits a dab and small waves a Warriors fan telling her to sit down. 💀 pic.twitter.com/q0IyIPIbGK
Unfortunately for both Ri and LeBron, it soon became pretty clear that Kevin Durant was leading the Warriors to a big win. Naturally Rihanna wasn’t pleased, so she and personal assistant Jenn Rosales engaged in some light heckling as he shot a free throw:
As a potential response to her yelling, Kevin appeared to stare her down after he hit a three later on in the game, which you can see below (at the :36 minute-mark):
The Warriors won 113-91, and at the postgame press conference a reporter asked if the staredown was on purpose, since «social media was buzzing» about it. «I don’t even remember that,» Kevin responded, while teammate Steph Curry joked, «Don’t get in that trap.» For her part, Rihanna was filmed walking out of the arena after the game seeming decidedly unbothered, saying that the loss «doesn’t matter, b*tch. The king is still the king.» Here’s hoping Rihanna shows up for Game 2.
Anyone who has ever been to a sports game of some kind knows that some people take sports very seriously. Rihanna loves basketball, and she loves sitting courtside and gets into it. She also really doesn’t like it when a team beats her boo LeBron James. That created the perfect storm last night during Game 1 of the NBA Finals last night.
The Cleveland Cavaliers played the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, CA last night. TMZ says Rihanna showed up and wasted no time in letting it be known she’s Team Cleveland. She bowed to LeBron, then pulled one of her signature “not into you” moves by bored waving off a Warriors fan who told her to sit down.

If that old lady wants a Warrior player to talk shit with about how disrespectful Rihanna was, she might want to ask for Kevin Durant’s number. Rihanna pulled hard at Kevin Durant’s metaphorical wig last night. Rihanna yelled “briiiiiick!” at Kevin during a free throw. Kevin responded by sinking the shot, then shooting her a side-eye.
Here’s Kevin roasting RiRi with his eyes from another, better angle.
After the game, which the Warriors won 113-91, a clearly pissed off Rihanna kept the trolling going by hissing at a happy Warriors fan: “It doesn’t matter bitch, the King is still the King.” Kevin refused to acknowledge Rihanna’s heckling in a post-game interview.
I don’t know why Rihanna hates Kevin so much. Maybe it’s because Kevin has made it clear in the past that he really doesn’t have the time for her fan club president, Drake. Or maybe this was Rihanna’s long-planned vengeance on the Warriors fan who called LeBron a “cry baby.” Whatever the reason, something tells me last night’s antics have probably changed Kevin’s mind on wanting to marry her.
That girl @rihanna RT @AyeDerBaba94: @KDTrey5 So my question is… If you could marry any girl who would it be?? RT
I really hope Rihanna shows up to every NBA Finals game and continues to troll. Not because I don’t like Kevin Durant. It’s because she’s more fun to watch than the actual game. How will this end? Will Rihanna get escorted out of the building by a ref after humping a mascot and yelling “This will never be you!” at Kevin Durant? I hope so.
Now the truth comes out from the Matt Harvey situation
Turns out, according to Page Six, that Harvey was sent over the edge by Adriana Lima partying with her other slam piece Julian Edelman. Apparently, Harvey was unaware that Lima was just not as into their relationship as he was. “Adriana’s relationship with Matt was never serious,” a source said. “They are no longer seeing each other.” A depressed Harvey, who was in Atlanta on the night of the Met Gala, had to take his turn pitching in the Mets rotation a few hours after seeing his gal pal out on the town without him. He wound up getting hammered by the Braves, giving up 6 runs in 5 innings.
Bro, bro, bro, bro…it ain’t worth it. Adriana is 35, has seemingly dated half the athlete population and isn’t in the prime of her career. You can do better. Get your head together, don’t fall for Edelman’s sloppy seconds and move on with life. Get out and slam a couple of new models and you’ll be just fine.

Kevin Durant really let loose with his potty mouth last night in Game 3 of the Warriors-Jazz series. Heading into this game, the Warriors were already up 2-0 in the series without really breaking a sweat, so to keep us all entertained KD fought with everyone, from Rudy Gobert to the Jazz mascot.
Let’s head to tapes and see what got Kevin so angry.
First, the Jazz mascot stayed on the court way too long
I think this is what started it all.
LOL, Durant to Jazz mascot: "Get the f**k off the court"
