Kevin Durant was not thrilled when Peyton Manning made a joke about him at the ESPYs

New, comments

Even Wanda was laughing!

Peyton Manning hosted the 25th ESPYs and his monologue was full of jokes. Some of them were funny, some of them were not, and some of them MADE KEVIN DURANT SO MAD.

Manning: "Our gymnastics team was so dominant that Kevin Durant told me he wants to play for them next year. And I gotta tell ya, I don’t think you’d start for that team, Kevin."

Live look at Kevin Durant:

Manning: "Russell Westbrook, what do you think?”

Manning’s monologue wasn’t great, but this moment and these memes will have been worth it. Look, even Kevin’s mom Wanda was laughing at it. Kevin has his championship now. He can relax.

Let’s be real here, though. KD doesn’t stand a chance against this squad.

Update: Kevin Durant responded on Twitter and it’s highly accurate.

But in the end, we found out it was planned all along.

Well played, KD.
