Kevin Durant trolls Russell Westbrook with cupcake hat

Kevin Durant trolls Russell Westbrook with cupcake hat

LeBron James started the trend in 2016, Draymond Green gave it his best shot at the Golden State Warriors' 2017 championship parade and now Kevin Durant has put his name on the list of National Basketball Association stars shouting out the haters via articles of clothing.

No long ago, Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors.

The cupcake jab became an ongoing gag, as Thunder fans created tons of merchandise featuring the treat to slight Durant. Except for Westbrook. He just posted one Instagram photo that day - a tiered tray of red, white, and blue cupcakes.

Almost a year later, Durant now has a ring, a Finals MVP award and the license to troll Westbrook and anyone else who questioned his decision to join forces with a team of superstars.

Durant was named Finals MVP after scoring 30-plus points in five straight games as he helped the Warriors finish off the Cleveland Cavaliers, 4-1, in the best-of-seven series.

Durant wore his hat to teammate JaVale McGee's charity softball game in Oakland, Calif., on Saturday.

Simmons issued a response to Durant's statement about FEDS, tweeting "Forget the nicknames, let's hoop".
