After a spectacular performance in the NBA Finals and winning the Finals MVP award, you have every right to run your mouth as you have proved yourself on the basketball's biggest stage. Kevin Durant, 2017 Finals MVP and superstar-small forward of the Golden State Warriors, did just that.

Kevin Durant isn't a fan of 'FEDS' nickname

Despite playing a total of zero minutes in the NBA, the 76ers foursome of Ben Simmons, Dario Saric, Joel Embiid, and Markelle Fultz, nicknamed the "FEDS," have the potential to attain the superstar status. However, the fact remains that these four young players are still an unproven talent in the NBA, something that was pointed out by Golden State Warriors champ Kevin Durant.

On Saturday, at JaVale McGee's softball charity game in Oakland, Kevin Durant was recorded telling his teammates McGee and Andre Iguodala, "How they got a nickname and ain't played no games together?" In his defense, however, Durant later went on to Twitter to defuse the situation. He explained that he thought these four young Philadelphia 76ers were indeed talented and had untapped potential. Nevertheless, he wasn't too impressed by their nickname.

Who knows the reason why Kevin Durant was offended by the situation? It is a possibility, however, that the foursome of Markelle Fultz, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, and Ben Simmons a.k.a FEDS will become the next super team in the NBA. Durant will then remake the possible move to Philadelphia when the Sixers are in prime position to win it all.

Durant getting used to 'Cupcake'

Kevin Durant has finally come to terms with his "Cupcake" nickname. After deciding to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and joining the Golden State Warriors last summer, he was given the nickname "Cupcake." On Saturday, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP was sighted wearing a cap with a championship ring on top of the famous confectionery.

Going by the last two seasons, it's worth noting that the popularity of the celebration-themed cupcake caps is soaring. In the following months, the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals. LeBron James posted a picture on Instagram with him holding the Larry O'Brien trophy and a t-shirt with the great Kermit and Ice-T meme. These examples go on to show that the NBA has no boundaries when it comes to pettiness.
