What’s your worst nightmare? We’re guessing it’s not winning three-straight NBA Championships. Chris Broussard, however, thinks a little differently. Broussard claimed on FOX Sports Radio that, “Durant’s worst nightmare is coming true.”
That “worst nightmare” is the potential of the Warriors three-peating without him, and thus in Broussard’s mind, diminishing the value of the title in relation to Durant. Here is the gist of his comments:
If Warriors win title without KD, does that diminish his 2 rings? https://t.co/jhwklmTUcu

Of course, Durant didn’t agree with Broussard’s assessment, tweeting in response, “I see a little exaggeration there buddy, my worst nightmare?? U sure that this is the worst that it can get???”

Andre Iguodala responded in kind, also calling out the ridiculousness of Broussard’s comments (warning, strong language):
Man fu*% them niggas mane!

Durant has of course been sidelined with a right calf strain since Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Houston Rockets. There is no clear timeline on his return, but if the Warriors sweep the Portland Trail Blazers tonight, or if he doesn’t play in the series, which seems to be likely, he’ll have accumulated about three weeks of rest before the NBA Finals.
