So we kind of missed this one, what with the playoffs and free agency and the draft and Game of Thrones and all, but rapper The Game and Kevin Durant had a little miniature feud that erupted.
At an event, The Game posted a video of him hitting a 3 with a caption that said that Durant said if he hit it, Durant would donate $20,000 to The Game's charity organization. He hit it.
Finally, apparently the two straightened it out. From The Game:
Had a conversation with @easymoneysniper this morning & we both agreed that there was a miscommunication between the middle party which was "TMZ" & that the way the camera man presented it to him was as if he bet me $20,000 cash which wasn't the case.... We agreed that if I hit the 3 point shot he would get KD gear & his kicks for all the kids in our @froggallstars organization which is close to 130 children.... 130 kids at a price of maybe $150 a shoe & gear after tax equals close to $20,000 give or take so that's where that # came from. When I woke up & had multiple texts & calls saying KD called me a liar on TMZ, I acted immediately in clearing things up on my end on my page & didn't have a # on @easymoneysniper to clear it up privately which is what I should've done because the situation that was meant to be friendly & charitable to the kids & is now blown out of proportion.... But again, after talking to KD this am he again agreed to get all the kids his kicks & KD gear & also stated he was taken back by the $20,000 cash because that wasn't what was agreed on by us..... It was a friendly bet that was only purely beneficial to the kids in our program & I'm glad we straightened it out in the end & I personally told @easymoneysniper my bad for jumping the gun due to what I read on TMZ this am. It was truly a miscommunication.. I could've chose my words a bit wiser & made it a little more clear.... So on behalf of all the kids, myself & the @froggallstars organization, we want to thank him again for looking out for our kids & our fast growing program, it's very much appreciated - The Game #froggallstars #therobinhoodproject #nikebasketball #weready #aau #KD #MvP #ThankYou

Glad that's cleared up. But the curse of Lil' B still lingers over Kevin Durant and the Thunder.
