During the NBA offseason, Kevin Durant made headlines after some comments he made about the Under Armour brand, whose main basketball backer is his Golden State Warriors teammate, Steph Curry, during an appearance on the Bill Simmons Podcast.
The Finals MVP took a shot at Under Armour on the Bill Simmons Podcast saying that “nobody” wants to play in their shoes. Obviously, this comment wouldn't have gone down well with Curry, so many believed there was friction between the two Warriors stars.
Curry strongly opposed Durant's claim but also promised that their dispute wouldn't disrupt the Warriors' locker room ahead of their NBA Championship defense this upcoming new season.
The two Warriors stars did eventually have a man-to-man conversation about the issue and worked out their differences, as Durant stated in a separate interview that there is no beef between them.
Both Curry and KD made it evidently clear that no so-called Sneakers War was going to break the duo apart by posting a fun picture of the two together wearing their respective brand's apparel onto Curry's Instagram.
The two-time NBA MVP then gave the following three-word caption to his photo, 'Why so serious?', squashing any concerns of a rift between himself and Durant in the process.
This is just another case of something minor being blown out of proportion. If a possible way to break apart this Warriors super team that looks set to dominate the NBA for years to come shows itself, people are going to exploit it to the fullest extent in hope that it pulls the team apart.
Unfortunately for the haters, it hasn't done so, and in fact, it might have done the exact opposite of what they would have wanted. Right now though, it's the Warriors that are having the last laugh, as they're entering the new season as the defending NBA Champions.
