“6 Days to Finish This Game”: Kevin Durant Roasts Warriors’ Draymond Green and Michael Jordan’s Former Teammate in a Savage Tweet

Published 05/11/2022, 12:52 AM EDT

Kevin Durant may have had a terrible playoff series against the Boston Celtics, but he has taken that result off his mind now. He has been posting tweets pretty regularly now and had gone to sunny Greece to watch a Euro league match. In short, Durant has taken his team’s result off his mind for now. On his Twitter, he posts his reaction to other tweets and media, such as pictures and videos. He got in trouble one time recently for that, but that’s now the past.

On his Twitter, he has recently reacted to a video by Bleacher Report. The Bleacher Report has been for some time, releasing a video series called “Portal”. It is a 3D animated show where we see basketball legends of the past and current players compete in 1 vs 1 matchups. Hence, there have been videos like ” Larry Bird vs Kevin Durant”, ” Joel Embiid vs Charles Barkley “, ” Kyrie Irving vs Allen Iverson” etc.

So, in accordance to that, they have recently released a video called, ” Draymond Green vs Prime Dennis Rodman 1 vs 1″. Both are very good defensively and are students of the game. Rodman was a bit weak offensively while Green is great there. Rodman, though, was a master of the rebound. He apparently studied the ball rotations of the basketball to understand how to do it precisely.

So, Kevin Durant tweeted out “It’ll take 6 days to finish this game”. The tweet references the defensive abilities both possess. Durant, especially, knows what skills Draymond possesses as both were teammates in the Warriors before.

Green won Defensive Player of the Year two years in a row during that period. Durant was adjudged the Finals MVP also during that time. Both were vital for the Golden State Warriors winning two championships in a row in 2017 and 2018.

They also had a very famous blowup in 2018 when Green was admonishing Durant. It led to the latter blocking Draymond’s number. Durant might have left the Warriors because of this blowup. But, now, they are on much better terms.
