In an example of charity giving gone wrong, The Game and Kevin Durant have gone on a winding two-day dramedy that, in the end, will benefit some kids. Apparently, KD and The Game made a bet at Drake’s party. If The Game drained a three-pointer (all net) then the MVP would cut a check for $20K to the Game’s youth basketball program, the Frogg All Stars. Of course, Game drained the shot at the party but, according to TMZ, Durant denied the deal ever took place. The Game claimed that James Harden and DeMar DeRozan were there to witness everything go down. The Game caught wind of Durant’s denial and fired shots on Instagram.
The Game’s first Instagram post said the following: “Now why [Kevin Durant] frontin on the kids homie ?!?!?!? We clearly said….. “If I made the 3 from NBA range you’d supply the entire @froggallstars program with brand new Kevin Durant shoes”…… 120 kids, close to $200 a shoe equals about $20,000. How am I lying ???? Just say you a sore loser & you ain’t wanna help the kids…. It ain’t that they need it cause I bought all 120 kids Lebrons out my own pocket as you can see on their Instagram.. But I thought it would be kool for them to meet you & be able to ball in your shoes especially since they look up to you & I made the shot as WE AGREED.”
The Game ended the post with a plethora of hashtags that would give anyone a headache. But then Durant apparently reached out via traditional methods—the phone—and cleared things up. Now Game’s IG has been updated with this innocent pic:
…with a message clarifying, “Had a conversation with @easymoneysniper this morning & we both agreed that there was a miscommunication between the middle party which was “TMZ” & that the way the camera man presented it to him was as if he bet me $20,000 cash which wasn’t the case…. We agreed that if I hit the 3 point shot he would get KD gear & his kicks for all the kids in our @froggallstars organization which is close to 130 children…. 130 kids at a price of maybe $150 a shoe & gear after tax equals close to $20,000 give or take so that’s where that # came from. When I woke up & had multiple texts & calls saying KD called me a liar on TMZ, I acted immediately in clearing things up on my end on my page & didn’t have a # on @easymoneysniper to clear it up privately which is what I should’ve done because the situation that was meant to be friendly & charitable to the kids & is now blown out of proportion…. But again, after talking to KD this am he again agreed to get all the kids his kicks & KD gear & also stated he was taken back by the $20,000 cash because that wasn’t what was agreed on by us….. It was a friendly bet that was only purely beneficial to the kids in our program & I’m glad we straightened it out in the end & I personally told @easymoneysniper my bad for jumping the gun due to what I read on TMZ this am. It was truly a miscommunication.. I could’ve chose my words a bit wiser & made it a little more clear…. So on behalf of all the kids, myself & the @froggallstars organization, we want to thank him again for looking out for our kids & our fast growing program, it’s very much appreciated – The Game #froggallstars #therobinhoodproject #nikebasketball #weready #aau #KD #MvP #ThankYou”
