Damian Lillard doesn't want anything to see with the Bam Adebayo-Kevin Durant beef during a recent Team USA practice. KD, as usual, went to social media to vent his frustrations with Adebayo. The big man wasn't having that and replied to the 2x NBA champion, setting the alarms at the camp.
Initially, KD called Bam out for 'stealing' the ball he was shooting. Then, the Miami Heat player tried to blame Damian Lillard for taking Durant's ball away. The Portland Trail Blazers superstar wasn't having it, though.
When everybody expects to see these players getting along, trying to win the gold medal in the Summer Olympic Games, Durant and Adebayo starred in an awkward situation.
Bam wanted to drag Dame into it, but the All-Star point guard quickly removed himself from that situation.
Of course, this can only be a fun exchange between KD and Bam, but fans can't help but wonder why they take this attitude that doesn't help the team at all. Team USA is ready for redemption after losing in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
They start the Olympic tournament this Sunday against France at 8 AM ET. This is a big duel for Gregg Popovich's team. After losing to Nigeria and Australia during the preparation matches, they're looking to start the competition with a valuable W over a dangerous rival.
