Kevin Durant is someone who has caught a lot of flack from the old heads over the years. Overall, there is a contingent of people who believe that Durant is soft. Moreover, some people have even called him terms like "miserable." Mostly, this criticism has come from Charles Barkley. Over the years, Barkley has called Durant a "bus rider" as opposed to a "bus driver." Additionally, it has almost become clear that he does not like KD. In some cases, it has even felt personal, with Durant calling Chuck out on social media.
With each passing day, these two grow to dislike each other even more. For instance, in a recent interview, Barkley said: "He's very sensitive. Great player. He's part of that generation who think he can't be criticized. He's never looked in the mirror and says 'Man, is that a fair criticism?'" Although this isn't the first time someone has said this about KD, it does seem odd that Barkley keeps harping on this. In fact, Durant saw the comments and immediately decided that he had had enough.
Kevin Durant Speaks
On Twitter, Durant wrote, "This ain't gettin tiring chuck? I'll never respect the words that come out ya mouth fam just deal with it." Furthermore, a fan noted that KD only dislikes it when people keep it personal. When it comes to basketball, KD takes his criticism with grace. Durant noticed this comment took the quote tweets, adding "This is where I'm at wit it..." Needless to say, Durant doesn't mind being criticized for his play. However, the criticism better be from a pure basketball standpoint. Otherwise, he does not want to hear it.
Barkley has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way over the years. He is someone who does not hold back, and that is especially true when it comes to Durant. Although, the players are starting to clap back, and it has forced Chuck's hand. Even a sitdown between these two probably wouldn't square away their beef. That said, we're not sure the fans would even want that. In the eyes of many, this feud just makes the league that much more entertaining.
