Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green have a storied history together dating back to Durant’s time in The Bay.

The two spent three seasons together in Golden State and won two championships. Durant’s decision to join the Warriors in free agency after he had just lost to them by blowing a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals was highly controversial at the time.

KD & Draymond Detail Infamous Phone Conversation

“It was this whole narrative of like, “You called Kevin crying from the parking lot” I’m like yo, this s*** — ya’ll added a theatrical sense to make this s*** a movie. You gotta make s*** for TV, you gotta add on a little bit,” Green said on the latest episode of Durant’s podcast The ETCs.

Green jokingly said that he called Durant in the parking lot of Oracle Arena after they blew a 3-1 lead to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. A story that got blown way out of proportion.

“So people just started pouring on bruh,” Green continued.

“But I wasn’t about to come out and fight it, at the end of the day. However, ya’ll think Kevin got here in your mind, roll with that s*** if that helps you out.”

After Durant left Oklahoma City for Golden State, Thunder fans began to speculate whether Green and KD had been planning his exit all along during the Conference Finals. Durant was quick to shut down those rumors.

“This is for OKC fans. They thought me and Dray was hanging out, literally like chilling with each other during the Conference Finals,” Durant said.

“When I heard that s*** I was like “Man, what the f*** who do ya’ll think I am? Who do you think Draymond would hang out with me during the Conference Finals over at my house? Like, come on stop the bull****”
