A friendly wager for charity took a turn for the worse between rapper The Game and OKC baller Kevin Durant when TMZ got in the mix of the on-the-fly bet for the kiddies.
Okay, so according to TMZ, last week at a Drake party, Durant stepped to The Game with a philanthropic offer: if the “How We Do” rapper could sink a 3-point shot at NBA range he’d give away $20K worth of his sneakers to The Game’s lil league basketball team Frogg All Stars.
It was all net for The Game’s charity shot, but never received the deets from K.D. on when the kids gear would be delivered. TMZ got wind of the wager, tracked Durant down during his workout for answers and called out the MC for lying about the bet. Not one to let that slide, the Game blasted the baller out on Instagram about the terms of the bet. He even said Drake was a witness to the charity shot.
There was more back and forth until finally the Game released this statement on Instagram about the fracas:
Had a conversation with @easymoneysniper this morning & we both agreed that there was a miscommunication between the middle party which was “TMZ” & that the way the camera man presented it to him was as if he bet me $20,000 cash which wasn’t the case…. We agreed that if I hit the 3 point shot he would get KD gear & his kicks for all the kids in our @froggallstars organization which is close to 130 children…. 130 kids at a price of maybe $150 a shoe & gear after tax equals close to $20,000 give or take so that’s where that # came from. When I woke up & had multiple texts & calls saying KD called me a liar on TMZ, I acted immediately in clearing things up on my end on my page & didn’t have a # on @easymoneysniper to clear it up privately which is what I should’ve done because the situation that was meant to be friendly & charitable to the kids & is now blown out of proportion….
