Kevin Durant Held Back from CLE Hecklers At Team Hotel
Kevin Durant did not like being told his alma mater is “butt” — and it almost led to a confrontation outside the Warriors team hotel Wednesday night.
KD — fresh from hitting that dagger that gave Golden State a 3-0 series lead over Cleveland — was returning to the Ritz-Carlton … where Cavs fans were heckling him on the way in.
They shouted stuff like “you suck” and “where LeBron at?” — but the one that got him to turn around … “KD, UT’s butt!”
Obviously, Durant went to the University of Texas … and he stopped in his tracks to stare the heckler down.
In fact, a team official started to hold KD back.
Don’t worry, he walked back into the hotel without incident.
For the record, UT basketball was “butt” last year — finishing 9th in the BIG 12.
But, in all seriousness … Props to KD for not killing this guy.
