What did Twitter say about the Jay Williams vs Kevin Durant beef? Memes and reaction explored.

Jay Williams vs Kevin Durant beef explained

On ESPN’s Get Up!, analyst Jay Williams told a story about how he and Kevin Durant met at a party some years ago and discussed Giannis Antetokounmpo.

During the segment, Jay Williams mentioned KD didn’t take the comparison to Giannis well, and told Williams to never compare them again.

Kevin Durant responds

Durant called the story “a lie” in the Instagram comments of a post about the anecdote.

He then went on to Twitter to address the story directly.

Durant said: “Mans will do anything to advance their careers in this media s***, wanting to be accepted by an industry that will dispose of you whenever they please. Keep me out all that corny talk about who’s better and legacy and all that dumb s***. I don’t even talk like that.”

It seems to be a classic he said/they said, and we may never get to the bottom of it.

Either KD didn’t say this, and Jay Williams is making it up, or it is true and KD is back-tracking because he doesn’t want the media attention.

Twitter reacted to the situation and created several memes involving Jay Williams.
