Kevin Durant Rejects IShowSpeed's Dating Advice, Says He Won't Bring Women Around Latter

Kevin Durant put on his comedian hat once again. KD hilariously rejected IShowSpeed's idea to be his wingman in a funny way. The Phoenix Suns star, currently in Las Vegas training for Team USA in the upcoming Paris Olympics, joined Logan Paul's Impaulsive Podcast on July 9 to chat about various topics.

What is IShowSpeed's real name? It's Darren Watkins Jr. Also known as IShowSpeed or simply Speed, Watkins tried to team up with Durant, but the two-time NBA champion wasn't interested. An excerpt of the podcast shows Watkins asking Durant if he would go on a two-man quest with him, but KD wasn't into it.

Kevin Durant made it clear he won't bring any women around IShowSpeed

The interaction began when IShowSpeed asked if Durant would join him on a two-man quest. The NBA superstar paused before saying: "I would not bring any women around you." IShowSpeed was surprised and claimed he was good with women. Kevin Durant didn't budge.

"If they're fresh, and I never met 'em before..." Durant said. "And their first entry point with me is with you? No," Durant added. This cracked up IShowSpeed and the podcast hosts. There was no bad blood between them, and they quickly moved on to planning IShowSpeed's 21st birthday.

Later in the podcast, Kevin Durant and IShowSpeed talked about women again. This time, Speed tried to give Durant advice on picking up women but got roasted himself.

"Stop giving me advice on women," Durant began. "KD got his heart broken. I used to be just like him; that one hand won't last forever," Speed replied. Durant shot back, telling Speed not to compare himself to him.

"Hand? Bro, you're 16. Do not compare yourself to me; you have no other resources but your hand. Please don't put me in that same tier as you," KD replied.

When Speed said he had every Kevin Durant shoe, the NBA star was quick to cut back.

"You know I got all your shoes? KD's 7, KD's 8?" Speed said. "Bro, get off my d**k," Durant replied.

Like he's tried to shut down fans, Kevin Durant seemed on a mission against Speed. However, none of these comments were because he disliked the streamer; the jokes were light-hearted. Kevin Durant's net worth is estimated to be at $300 million in 2024, making him one of the richest basketball players currently.
