Kevin Durant Called Out ‘Drunk Uncle’ Shannon Sharpe For Using A Fake Quote On TV [Photos + Video]

Kevin Durant isn’t scared to challenge pundits. Just ask Michael Rapaport. KD was at it again on Tuesday, when he took issue with a fake quote that was brought up by Undisputed host Shannon Sharpe.

It started with Shannon Sharpe going on Undisputed and citing a fake Durant quote from a meme and KD, understandably, calling “drunk uncle” Shannon out for it.

Sharpe, rather than just admitting he’d goofed, doubled down and fired back at KD, who is never one to let something go so he continued to ask why he was using fake quotes.

Shannon asked for KD to talk with him outside the “eye” of social media to settle their differences, which is a weird thing to say when you get called out for citing a fake quote on your television show to suddenly want to discuss things privately.

On top of all of a sudden wanting to take things offline, Sharpe has to know that’s not how KD rolls. This is a man who has said over and over that he logs onto the bird looking for drama and wanting to argue, so you can’t expect him to suddenly look to take this to a phone call to settle some differences — which, again, are solely caused by Sharpe here, who could just say “I got got, my bad” and have all of this be done rather than doubling down.

Sharpe then blocked Durant, which unsurprisingly gave KD the final word.

As For the Win points out, the fake quote originally circulated online five months ago. In Sharpe’s defense, he wasn’t the only talking head to fall for the troll.
