Kevin Durant hilariously responds to ‘Hard Knocks’ dig from Lions WR’s dad

The second episode of “Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Detroit Lions” aired on Tuesday night, and it featured a player’s dad calling out an NBA superstar.

Part of the latest episode focused on Lions second-year wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and his family. St. Brown’s brother, Equanimeous, is a receiver for the Chicago Bears, while his father, John Brown, was a two-time Mr. Universe bodybuilder in the 1980s.

John Brown, who still trains Amon-Ra and Equanimeous to this day, was interviewed by the HBO and NFL Films series during a workout with his sons. And while discussing how his sons got strong, Brown took aim at … Kevin Durant’s calves.

“You gotta train your whole body,” Brown said. “Kevin Durant and these guys mess their Achilles up. I have a question for guys like Kevin Durant — when’s the last time you did a calf raise?”

It was only a matter of time before the Slim Reaper responded to the random jab from Brown, and he did so in simple yet hilarious fashion on Wednesday.

It’s good to see Durant hasn’t stopped his Twitter shenanigans amid his push for a trade from the Brooklyn Nets. Maybe he and Brown can link up for a workout before the 2022-23 NBA season gets underway.
