The act of trash-talking has always been a part of this game. Whether it is used to get under someone’s skin or just plain disrespect, it doesn’t go away. Currently, Green is one of the best trash talkers around. However, it seems he has competition from Durant in that field.

He said: “I think you started to realize it now with the more he talks on Twitter or the more he’s caught saying stuff to fans in the stands. I’ve always told people, KD’s one of the biggest trash talkers to me since I came into the league. And it would be disrespectful stuff like ‘Ay who is this?’. KD would turn the dude around like trying to look at the back of his jersey to see his name on the back. K would say stuff to people and you’re like, ‘Yo! you Kevin Durant there’s not much I can say back.”
