Durant has so far been very respectful of some of the league’s elite players that include LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, whom he calls as 1A and 1B for being the best players in the game. However, Bosh‘s reported thrash talking got the ire of  Durant that led to the OKC star’s heated words against the Miami big man. Durant is a 22 year old, who is in his fourth year as an NBA player.

During the post-game interview, Durant called Bosh, the former Toronto All-Star forward, a “fake tough guy.” Durant believes that Bosh can only talk because he is now on a good. The Durant-Bosh incident happened at the 6:46 mark of the first quarter.

Below is part of Kevin Durant‘s statement against Chris Bosh.

I was talking to my teammate and [Bosh] decided he wanted to put his two cents into it. I am a quiet guy, laid-back guy, but I’m not going to let nobody talk trash to me. He’s on a good team now so he thinks he can talk a little bit. There are a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he’s one of them.

I’m no punk. I wasn’t even talking to him first off. He decided to butt in and I’m not going to just let that slide. Especially in our house. Like I said, he’s not one of those guys I look at and say he has a rep for talking back to guys or getting into it. He’s a nice guy. I’m not going to let that type of person say something to me like that.
