The Phoenix Suns‘ power forward Kevin Durant has heard it all, surely. Three of the top five player-related prop bets for the game against the Utah Jazz concerned him. They were: Durant would score more than 30.5 points, record over 4.5 assists, and be the first basket-scorer. Durant met two out of the three. He was not the first basket-scorer in that game. Jonathan Owens showed solidarity with Durant.

Via an Instagram story, Jonathan Owens responded to Kevin Durant’s critique of fair-weather fans. Durant shared an image of himself with the words, “When I get ya paid, u don’t DM me and send a small percentage to my cashapp but when them parlays don’t hit, I’m every name in the book. Y’all ain’t real.” Owens shared the same image in his story and added the words, “Like, man, don’t nobody care about y’all parlay.”

Jonathan Owens confirmed it is not possible to worry about all the terms and conditions of the bets placed by the so-called fans. He echoed agreement with Durant’s assessment of the situation.
