- You're loving-- you're eating this up.

- All right, Kevin Durant needed, I don't know who was in Durant's life growing up. I had a great man named Anthony Mange, my best Italian godfather, teach me at a very early age there are sometimes three very--

- How many Italian godfathers?

[INTERPOSING VOICES]

JENNA WOLFE: 'Cause if this guy was your best one.

- I have a bunch of them.

JENNA WOLFE: OK.

- He taught me at a very early age, sometimes there's only three words you need to know. Deny, deny, deny. You can never cop to this, KD. You had to go to your grave claiming you were hacked, you fired a social media manager.

- To everything.
