			Wanda Durant blasts Stephen A. Smith for calling KD-to-Dubs ‘weak’

Wanda Durant backed up her son after ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said Kevin Durant’s move to the Warriors was weak.

Mama Durant called Smith’s comments “quite harsh” during ESPN’s First Take on Sunday.

“It’s like, ‘Who are you, Stephen A., to come at my boy like that?’ When he came to ESPN? Was that a weak move for him?” Wanda Durant said, mentioning when Smith moved from Fox Sports to ESPN. “He joined some more heavy hitters, right? To up his career, right? To do what was best for him. That’s what he did, right? No one called him weak for that. So why call me son weak for doing the same thing he did?”

Wanda Durant was seemingly referring to a tweet Smith sent last July.

“Dan’t give a (darn) what anyone says: weak move by KD,” Smith wrote then. “You go to GSW, the team who beat you, when you’re already on a title contender? Please!”

It should be noted that Mama Durant began her response Sunday with a heartfelt message for Smith, who missed the show because he’s gone following the death of his mother last week.

“I’d like to send my prayers and condolences out to Stephen A. and his family,” Durant said. “I know this is a difficult time for them. Let Stephen know, no matter what this is all about that we’re still here for him.”

Smith and Durant have taken shots at each other in the past, but clearly there is mutual respect as well.
