Kevin Durant Bashes ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, Calls Him A Liar

On ESPN's First Take earlier this week, noted "personality" Stephen A. Smith claimed to have a scoop on the impeding free agency of Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant. 

Smith said, as transcribed by the Washington Post, said: 

“In one breath I’m hearing that if Kevin Durant doesn’t stay in Oklahoma City, L.A. is his primary objective and landing spot as opposed to South Beach or even his home of Washington, D.C,” he said. 

Durant, the NBA MVP who becomes a free agent next summer, responded to this claim this afternoon. "He's lying," he said.

Smith has responded to Durant, saying he stands by his report and never claimed to have spoken to anyone in Durant's circle.
