But Durant came back with a vicious knockout blow, pointing out that Broussard does not have Durant's number. Broussard, who works for Fox Sports, then claimed that the two have had long text message conversations in the past and have a love-hate relationship.

Kevin Durant may be sidelined with a calf injury, but that hasn't stopped the Golden State Warriors forward from providing us with Grade-A entertainment on the interwebs. Durant responded by writing, "I see a little exaggeration there buddy, my worst nightmare??" This sure seems like another bad look online for Durant.
