Kevin Durant bore the brunt of criticism from Oklahoma City Thunder fans when he left the team and signed with the Golden State Warriors last summer. Thunder fans used the term #cupcake in reference to Durant, especially during the Warriors’ visit to Oklahoma City in the regular season. Durant was greeted by “cupcake” chants by Thunder fans whenever he was introduced and touched the ball against his former squad. Former teammate #Russell Westbrook even posted three plates of cupcakes as he greeted his Instagram followers during 4th of July celebrations.

After enduring that all season long, Durant can now laugh at his critics after winning his first NBA title with the Warriors. He did it in a subtle way though, trolling his critics by wearing a custom cupcake hat with a ring on top instead of cherry during a charity softball game organized by teammate Javale McGee at Oakland-Alameda Coliseum.

Durant was named Finals MVP after scoring 30-plus points in five straight games as he helped the Warriors finish off the Cleveland Cavaliers, 4-1, in the best-of-seven series.

Durant roasts 76ers’ FEDS

During the charity softball game, Durant took a shot at the Philadelphia 76ers’ newly formed starting unit dubbed as FEDS or Fultz (Markelle), Embiid (Joel), Dario (Saric) and Simmons (Ben).

“How they got a nickname and ain’t played no games together?” Durant replied when asked about the FEDs.

Durant has a point because the FEDS officially played zero games together.

Only Embiid and Saric had a chance to play together last season because Simmons was sidelined the whole year with a broken foot. Simmons issued a response to Durant’s statement about FEDS, tweeting “Forget the nicknames, let’s hoop”. Embiid earlier said fans came up with the acronym FEDS after the 76ers drafted Fultz as the No.

Durant to sign new contract with Warriors

Durant is expected to decline the $28 million player option on the second year of his $54 million contract with the Warriors. Golden State fans need not worry because Durant has committed to sign a new deal with the Warriors. Durant will not ask for a maximum deal and will settle for a 20-percent increase from his last season’s $26.5 million salary for the Warriors to retain Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, the other key pieces in their championship run. Durant is anticipated to sign another one-plus-one deal with a salary of $31.8 million in the first year and a player option on the second season.
