Kevin Durant rips reporter who knocked Nick Collison extension
Another day, another twitter kerfuffle involving an athlete.
This edition features Kevin Durant going after former ESPN NBA reporter Chris Palmer, who took a shot at Nick Collison's new two-year, $8-millon contract.
Durant was very excited about Collison's new deal.
Congrats Mr. Thunder, such a honor to play alongside you @nickcollison4— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) February 3, 2015
Palmer, on the other hand, was not a fan of the contract.
Durant was not going to stand for that kind of talk, so he threw a haymaker.
@ChrisPalmerNBA means a lot coming from a dude who got fired for being a dumbass— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) February 3, 2015
Palmer was still standing, though, and disputed that he was fired.
@KDTrey5 Love that you got your teammates back. But you should get your facts straight.— Chris Palmer (@ChrisPalmerNBA) February 3, 2015
ESPN reportedly didn't renew Palmer's contract back in 2013 after 15 years with the company.
