This could all be a small misunderstanding, or it could be an attempt by The Game to raise funds for a youth basketball team called Frogg All Stars that went very wrong. Last week The Game made a Instagram post with the following message:
“Bet Kevin Durant $20,000 that he’d have to donate to the @froggallstars & play wit #LaFamilia in the #DrewLeague if I made an NBA 3 pointer all net.”
The problem is that Durant is calling The Game out as a liar, saying that he never made any such bet.
On the other hand, The Game says he has witnesses to back it up. He’s claiming that Demar Derozen, Drake and James Harden all saw the two make the bet. The Game also posted a video showing he made the shot and then had a conversation with Durant.
The Game goes on to chalk it up to Durant being a sore loser.
“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.”
“But don’t sweat it champ,” Game adds … “we’ll still support you & I’ll go buy them myself just cause they mean that much to me….. 1 love – The Game.”
He concluded with a bunch of hashtags — “#FroggAllstars #NikeBasketball #iGotTheKids #itsTooHardForSomePeopleToKeepIt100 #MyOldestSonsFavoritePlayer #WhyWouldILieAboutSomethingThatsForTheKids #WhatDidiHaveToGain #PeopleHeardWhatWasSaid #AintImportantTho #NoLoveLost #illTellThemTheShoesCameFromYouAnyway #TheyWontKnowTheDifference #SadThingIsTheyreYourShoesAndItWouldntveCostYouADimeToGetThemForTheKids.”
None of The Games witnesses have backed his story, but if Durant made this bet, it’s pretty crappy of him not to give the $20K to the youth basketball team.
