C.J. McCollum picked the wrong person to complain to about DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Warriors.
If the reigning two-time Finals MVP told you that your team was not going to win a championship and you shouldn't be concerned with what teams in title contention are doing during the offseason, would it be better or worse if it happened on your own podcast?
That is the question C.J. McCollum now has to battle with after hosting Kevin Durant the latest episode of his Pull Up podcast.
McCollum was one of many people who was not too pleased with DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Warriors for just $5.3 million earlier this month, and he decided to air out his frustration with Durant.
However, Durant was not interested in hearing McCollum's complaints and instead told him there was no reason to be upset about the move because the Trail Blazers weren't going to be competing for a spot in the Finals anyway.
You can listen to the segment below:
The discussion continued off the podcast when Durant responded to McCollum's tweet.
I still think the b word is harsh and shouldn’t be used. . He know that decision was soft but I respect it. It’s like getting jumped with ur brothers by a gang you should’ve beat then joining the gang that jumped u and ur brothers 2 months later & forgetting about your bros https://t.co/BFGqQy1lwR— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) July 26, 2018
So,I would get into a gang fight, lose, plot on my brother for 2 months in our home and then go get the gang we lost to and beat him up? U think that low of me CJ? I just did your fuckin podcast. Snakes in the grass boy I tell ya 🤣— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) July 26, 2018
It is a bit hard to complain about what the defending champions are doing when you didn't even win a playoff game.
