Kevin Durant and Draymond Green explain the conversation that eventually created the famous meme
On April 16, 2017, Kevin Durant was expected to make his Warriors playoff debut (and eventually did) on his way to a tournament throughout the league. Durant was tremendous at the start of the first-round series between Golden State and Portland, scoring 32 points and scoring 11 rebounds. 121-109 in victory.
In fact, Durant was so good that Draymond Green of the Warriors turned it into a personal KD game during the game. The camera caught Green talking in Durant’s ear as the former NBA MVP blinked with confidence.
And so a meme was born. Some examples:
The meme has been used countless times since that afternoon, but Durant and Green never offered any details about the viral moment – until now.
In the last section of the section “The ETCs with Kevin Durant” podcast, Durant and host Eddie Gonzalez discussed various issues with Green, including that famous meme. It just so happens that it was a conversation … exactly what it was like.
Durant: “It was really gas.”
Green: “I was definitely gasping,‘ No, no one can take you with you! No one can stop you! “That’s what I was saying.”
Durant: “I was sitting there, ‘Yeah, n-, I know.” Yes, I liked his gasoline. I don’t have that in anyone’s hands. ”
Green: “K, if you do this, they can’t stop you!” “Yeah, you’re right. I know. I know.” That’s really it. ”
Durant: “That was exactly it.”
Mystery solved. Or, to put it in meme terms, “when did you finally tell your friend KD and Draymond what they were talking about.”
