Rapper The Game and Kevin Durant have reportedly reached an agreement that there was a “miscommunication” in regards to a $20,000 bet the two made.
The details are still very foggy but apparently Game and Durant bet that if the rapper could make a NBA-line 3-point shot, Durant would donate a large 100 pairs of KD’s ($100-$200 a pair) to Game’s youth basketball organization, equally a total of $20,000. Game made that shot but did not receive any donation, and is calling the ball player a “sore loser.”
Now, the NBA star says he DID agree to donate to the rapper’s team BUT he said he’d donate GEAR. Not heavy cash, nor was it even considered a “bet.” Durant posted to his Twitter, “Aight this is it. I never bet the game 20k cash. I never bet him. I told him I would give his AAU team KD gear. That’s all.”
The Game posted to his Instagram account in response to Kevin’s copout and agreed that there was just a simple misunderstanding:
“Had a conversation with @easymoneysniper this morning & we both agreed that there was a miscommunication between the middle party which was “TMZ” & that the way the camera man presented it to him was as if he bet me $20,000 cash which wasn’t the case…. We agreed that if I hit the 3 point shot he would get KD gear & his kicks for all the kids in our @froggallstars organization which is close to 130 children…. 130 kids at a price of maybe $150 a shoe & gear after tax equals close to $20,000 give or take so that’s where that # came from. When I woke up & had multiple texts & calls saying KD called me a liar on TMZ, I acted immediately in clearing things up on my end on my page & didn’t have a # on @easymoneysniper to clear it up privately which is what I should’ve done because the situation that was meant to be friendly & charitable to the kids & is now blown out of proportion…. But again, after talking to KD this am he again agreed to get all the kids his kicks & KD gear & also stated he was taken back by the $20,000 cash because that wasn’t what was agreed on by us….. It was a friendly bet that was only purely beneficial to the kids in our program & I’m glad we straightened it out in the end & I personally told @easymoneysniper my bad for jumping the gun due to what I read on TMZ this am. It was truly a miscommunication.. I could’ve chose my words a bit wiser & made it a little more clear…. So on behalf of all the kids, myself & the @froggallstars organization, we want to thank him again for looking out for our kids & our fast growing program, it’s very much appreciated – The Game #froggallstars #therobinhoodproject #nikebasketball #weready #aau #KD #MvP #ThankYou,” he said.
