It’s not unusual for Kevin Durant to make headlines because of his brilliant performances that are keeping the Brooklyn Nets at the top of the Eastern Conference. But this time, KD has become the talk of the town because of a picture of his ashy legs going viral on social media. And this time, the trolling wasn’t limited to fans but his former teammate, Draymond Green, also chimed in with some hilarious comments.

The picture surfaced after the Brooklyn Nets‘ last matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Durant had a stellar night, as usual, putting up 27 points and 9 assists, paired with James Harden’s 14 points and 14 points, to bring them the 117-112 victory. Unfortunately, the focus entirely shifted from his game to his lousy skincare in a jiffy.

A close-up picture of KD’s left leg was a picture worth a thousand words. As soon as it hit the internet, reactions about how ashy it looked started to pour in. It was obviously something that Durant wasn’t going to sit back and take.

Durant is known for continuously keeping in touch with his fans with his tweets. Only this time, he had to speak up to defend himself over all the mockery that is being made over his extremely dry legs. Sadly, it did not blow over as he might have expected. Instead, his former Golden State Warriors teammate also had some fun with the trending picture.

Draymond Green joins in on making fun of Kevin Durant

Draymond Green and Kevin Durant haven’t had the most loving relationship. Their beef is considered one of the major reasons for Durant’s eventual departure from the Dubs. Although the two sat down and revealed details of their altercation recently and sorted all feelings, it didn’t stop Green from having his fun with KD.

On his show, Green revealed that Bam sent him this viral image of KD, who also believed it was quite unreal. I said, “What the f*ck. That wasn’t even ash. That was f*cking scales. It looked like you could f*cking scale him like an alligator and take it to the store and sell it. That’s how bad it was.”

The Dubs big man even joked about calling Kevin and taking his opinion on the matter. In fact, he even knew exactly what Durant was going to say. However, this wasn’t the end of it. He also had some advice for KD.

“To my brother Rich Kleiman. Pick the lotion brand you all want to endorse and go partner with them. That’ll be an incredible story, if Kevin comes out the next game, incredibly lotioned, with skin looking impeccable. I’d love to see it,” he concluded.
