Kevin Durant gives Stephen A Smith the crying laughing emoji treatment


Athletes typically say they don’t watch or read what’s said about them.

Kevin Durant can’t make such a claim.

On the same day he clapped back at FS1 host Colin Cowherd on Instagram, the Warriors star also had a laugh at Stephen A. Smith’s expense.

Stephen A, who’s known for his loud and unvarnished opinions on ESPN’s “First Take,” didn’t appreciate Durant’s response to a reporter who asked Thursday about his post-confrontation relationship with Draymond Green.

Said KD: “Don’t ask me about that again.”

Said Stephen A: “Damn! It’s times like this I miss being a beat reporter.”

“You didn’t go hard at Draymond, but you’re going to go hard at a reporter?” Wow.

Durant seemed to have fun with it, though, as he responded to the Instagram video Friday with six crying laughing emojis.

Just when Warriors fans thought this might be serious business, KD drops emojis on the situation. Nothing -- well, almost nothing -- to see here, folks.
