After winning his first NBA championship on Monday, Longhorn alum Kevin Durant was asked pointedly if he had a “final message for Rihanna.”
The pair got people talking after Durant appeared to stare Rihanna down during the first game of the finals, and the singer reportedly yelled “brick” from the sidelines while he shot a free throw.

Durant, MVP trophy in hand, stared into the USA Today Sports camera and said, “I ain’t got to say nothing.” And, after giving it a few seconds, “Love you girl, but I got to do it. Gots to do it! You understand me?’’ Durant was then asked if Rihanna’s attendance was a highlight, to which he responded, “Oh my gosh. More than that. More than that.”
Although Durant has long tweet-confessed his love for the singer, Rihanna’s basketball allegiance has forever lain with LeBron James (including via a sunscreened torso message) .
Hey, at least you’ve still got that trophy, KD.
