The Olympic Games will soon be upon us, but not all fans are happy about the selections for the 2021 event. You can’t make everyone happy, but Kevin Durant had to shut down one fan for making a very bold statement.

The U.S Olympic team will be looking for their 16th gold medal in basketball during this year’s games. Kevin Durant will be grinding for his third medal overall. Some big names like LeBron James opted out of the games, but others weren’t asked.

One fan fired off on Twitter to complain abut Grizzlies star Dillon Brooks not being on Team USA. This is when KD had to reply and give this fan a little bit of background about Brooks that this fan might be missing.

U mean the Canadian Dillon Brooks?


Yes, Dillon Brooks is Canadian, so he wouldn’t be playing for Team USA in the first place. Kevin Durant doesn’t fire off many sarcastic tweets like this, but he is obviously paying attention to how fans are talking about Team USA’s activities.

What’s your take on this hilarious social media retort? Sound off in the comments!

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
