3. Kevin Durant
“KD” has one of the best off-court images of anyone in the NBA—although some might argue it changed a bit with his move to the Golden State Warriors—but on the court, Durant can trash talk with the best of them. Durant dished some in the direction of Dwyane Wade in the 2012 NBA Finals after sinking a shot over the guard and he had no problem getting into it with referees during his time in Oklahoma City.
Draymond Green, new teammate of Durant’s and another major smack talker, gave Durant his due during the 2015 season in a radio interview. “You know who I always thought [was a great trash-talker], but has been under the radar? I think Kevin Durant,” Green said. “Lotta people don’t know that. But if you play against him, you know. KD makes you feel bad about yourself, that you ever talked junk. It’s the funniest thing in the world.” Now that Durant is with the Warriors, he may have some trash talk coming his way, but everyone better be ready—he can spin it right back.
