Kevin Durant Confronts Disrespectful Fans But Tells Security To Let Them Stay

Once again entitled sports fans felt the need to verbally abuse a professional athlete simply because they were able to buy tickets to the game. This scene played out when Phoenix Suns basketball player, Kevin Durant made his way onto the home court of the Dallas Mavericks when a female fan disrespected him by calling him a bitch.

A video was captured of Durant running onto the basketball court with his teammates and as he passed two fans standing courtside, one of them called him a bitch. The Suns player stopped in his tracks and headed back to confront the woman who did so. When he turned back to face them, the woman quickly smiled and tried to give him a handshake after being caught with the disrespectful yelling. You can see Durant speaking to her and the man she was with.

Security came to step in and word has it that when the guards were going to throw the spectators out of the game, Durant came back and directed security not to. A gesture that did not have to happen but it did take place.

Sports reporter, Jonah Javad recorded the interaction and posted it to his X account.

Sports Illustrated reported that Durant explained why he approached and then allowed them to stay for the contest.

“People usually do that, call me ‘coward,’ ‘b**ch’ with my back turned, and it wasn’t too many people around,” Durant said. “I know you don’t mean that and I’m not going to get you kicked out because you paid your money for these tickets, you had a couple of drinks and I understand how people get, but it’s better ways to try to get my attention and talk to me other than call me a b**ch—- out my name because you’re protected in these arenas.”

Although Durant scored 23 points and grabbed 6 rebounds, the Suns fell to the Mavericks by a score of 123-113.
