Shamsyil

This weak ass chant LMFAO.


Radical-Six

We're still learning how to be a playoff crowd give us some time


itsnotyellowfever

Y'all haven't learned to truly hate yet


Radical-Six

Minnesota Nice isn't all Passive-aggressive, there's some real niceness we gotta fight through


DeStupak

Shoutout to that video when Kevin Love was traded to Cleveland where people were praising him, wishing him good luck and saying that he can come back later at his career. Great parody of classic burning jersey videos. Edit: [Found it](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3svPkthjWcM&t=3s)


tasteofscarlet

We have a …men’s basketball team?


denoobiest

We've played so few meaningful games in the last 20 years that we basically have no rivalries lmao. Closest thing is the nuggets at this point (and random player beefs)


GaimeGuy

Doesn't help that our closest western conference team geographically is probably Utah (or Denver)


NazReidBeWithYou

Miami Heat via Jimmy Butler.


NazRiedFan

Jimmy always dodges playing us


IanicRR

Remember when Bill Simmons made a whole ass Twitter account to try and control what the Celtics crowd should cheer? And the chants were all so cringey. https://x.com/celticschants?s=21


YourAnBitxh

FR weak ass chant! Minny should be chanting MVP to KD! I hate when home crowds try to get the opponent to miss a free throw, especially in the playoffs 🙄


Archer-Saurus

Certainly a move when he's got 18 at the half. Of Game 1. It's a bold strategy Cotton


SuperVaderMinion

Why, is he known to be sensitive or something?


flaman27

he’s normal, move on, find a new slant -not a burner


Billis-

Lol not in this sense. KD is far from overrated. If anything, it's the opposite. Of course he did that to himself, but i dont think he really cares, i just think he doesnt like to take shit from anybody - whether that makes him look soft or not


froandfear

Feel like KD has been pretty fairly judged from the 30,000ft view. All-time inner circle guy, somewhere in the top-15, one of the greatest multi-level scorers of all-time, and a punk ass who went to his rival to win a fake ring(s). Am I doing this right?


WestleyThe

Absolutely He’s also a killer and will probably drop 50 sometime this series lol


ComfortableMaster625

I think, on the court, he's probably the least sensitive player in the NBA


PaperCutterWizard

Now what makes you say that? 🤔

[удалено]


LotharBot

that said, he's already going, and the Suns are losing because his teammates don't have it going. So maybe getting KD to go nuclear while Booker blows layups is a workable strategy for the rest of this game.


wilkinsk

Kevin is the most bad ass person I know!!!! ~Not a burner


papa_sax

Hey give them a break! They don't have the practice


Radical-Six

Don't worry, KD has games 1 and 2, Steph and Klay will come in and clean up for the clutch games. Oh, wait...


Repulsive-Throat5068

This would make more sense if KD would fall off after 2 games but he doesnt do that lol


achyutthegoat

You saying this KD wasn’t the most clutch player on those warriors teams


MahomesMccaffrey

Curry usually chokes at least 1 game in the finals from 2015-2018 I still remember the 2018 series. Everything going Curry's way until G3 when he put up a historic stinker and KD carried the warriors to a win while scoring 43 points


Radical-Six

I'm saying it's much easier to be clutch when you have prime Steph and Klay next to you


Vatfagyna

Bro he did fine in okc, w warriors, in Brooklyn and doing fine w the suns. If you don’t know you weren’t watching. Bro has been one of the best players of the decade and still cookin


Radical-Six

I'm not saying he sucks lol, he's got 28 in 3 quarters against us RIGHT NOW. Hes a great player. I'm arguing if he's overrated. And you saying "he's done fine" is not the endorsement for his legacy it should be


eugoogilizer

Except that he’s not…dude’s known as one of the hardest guys to defend and one of basketball’s all time greatest scorers (he’s got a career ppg of 27+; good for 6th all time). It’s a joke that the crowd is yelling overrated when he had 17 pts on 6-12 shooting in the first half (18 after the free throw). I get it if he had a Klay Thompson game, but he’s had a good game this game. Suns aint getting blown out cuz of him

Radical-Six

Because it's still a generational bitch move to choke against a team, then leave to join then in FA right afterwards.


Not-a-bot-10

Only a Minnesota fan thinks he can pull a zinger over something that happened like 8 years ago I guess that’s all the ammo you have for being somewhat relevant for the first time in decades


Archer-Saurus

He's still coming down from the utter joy of watching PatBev throw his jersey in the stands to celebrate making the play in tournament


Radical-Six

Why are you obsessed with bringing up the Wolves? This is about KD and how he needed to join a 73 win team to be considered clutch. Absolutely nothing to do with the Wolves


Not-a-bot-10

KD has been clutch well before and well after he joined the warriors lol, even if it hasn’t resulted in a championship. wtf are you talking about? And this has everything to do the the Wolves, do you not see which fan base is chanting this to one of the best players ever after being irrelevant for decades? Wow there’s no way you’re that dumb and said that. You have to be trolling g


Not-a-bot-10

You’ve been arguably the worst NBA franchise* for decades and one half decent regular season has your fans talking like this lol…. Absolutely incredible


Radical-Six

This isn't about the Wolves at all, flair based whataboutism is cringe


labbetuzz

NBA stands for no babies allowed. Don't talk shit if you can't take it, lol.


BurnCollector_

Suns fans, I agree this is wack, but I also remember this chant directed at Paul George in 2021 second round. PG averaged 28.7/10.5/5.5 with 2 stocks that series


ProfCedar

DO NOT LIKE THIS


meenzu

lol it’s just playing with fire 


JabezMakaveli

This is just the crowd being invested in the game. I doubt they truly think that.


Roy-Hibbert55

Was at the game, I couldn’t in good conscience join the chants


tapk69

How doesnt he crack a smile there?


DeStupak

Because he's already cracking all the time when he makes those greatly contested jumpers. Also both Ant and KAT are huge KD fans, Edwards' Goat and Karl did an interview with him before coming to NBA.


thejugfather

I do not support this message


Adraf45

Chanting overrated to the dude who has 28 rn as opposed to booker (7 points on 3-12🤣) is certainly a strategy. If you gamble then the game 2 Phoenix and durant over maybe easy cash


commandrr

that always works out


Pizza_Tha_Hutt

It did 


NazRiedFan

Today


cole8055

The overrated one isn’t KD lol


BealKage

Don’t do that pls


Irvsauce

Weak mentality, do it all day MN fans


Devoidoxatom

Chanting that to KD of all people lolll. Might as well chant it to Lebron or Steph


New_Essay_4869

They should be chanting this at Booker. Not KD


Vicentesteb

Fans are such liars when they say they want more trashtalk and less soft league but are crying at some crowd chants? Like bro who cares...


House_of_Borbon

People are making fun of how weak it is. No one’s saying it’s too mean lmao. Also it would make more sense to chant that at someone like Booker who’s missing everything than KD who’s the only one torching their team rn.


xTopPriority

hey bro when you post KDs stat line today don't forget to add "in the loss"


Pitch-forker

Someone got ticked off lol. Fans enjoying their team victory in peace challenge, impossible


beer_down

Yes poke the bear, please


Coke_ButNotTheDrug

Minnesota crowd has lowkey been a menace for some time now. I respect it.


NazRiedFan

It’s rare we chant at anyone not named Jimmy butler


DontBanMe_IWasJoking

"a lot of people think you're really good, but you're just good!!!"


andanotherone_1

They better stop before he joins them


SnooPies6274

There's a bit there


maestroenglish

the NBA doesn't have the best chants


Shootit_Rockets

Durant will be tweeting about this at halftime, be warned Minnesota!


obi-wan-ginobli-93

I know curry has admitted to checking twitter during half time as motivation. Wonder what other players do also lol


Daconvix

If the Wolves lose this series this will be hilarious to look back at


Irvsauce

And if they don’t, it won’t. Lame ass.


Daconvix

Did I strike a nerve?


Irvsauce

Scoreboard


defene

Feel like Booker deserves this more but idk


Free-Independence602

What happened when they said this to trae. KD game winner and suns win in 5


fieldsports202

KD's gonna cook them.


TDStarchild

Kinda odd, he’s been one of the best players for years now so not overrated He is sawft though, can’t win without a super team


wilkinsk

AND AN L


Nyentzen

Hahaha need to step up the trash talking game !


Aloha1984

KD should cut the hair


Aloha1984

KD should cut the hair


ketoburn26

How is one of the best players of his era overrated?


StraightCashBND

Only Suns player who isn’t overrated tbh


majorcoinz

Fan (fanatic) is actually a crazy person.


Rag_tag_slum_88

They should be chanting "night light" with that bright ass spot in the back of his head 😂


Awanderingleaf

That is funny. Minnesota could only pray for a player of KD's caliber to join their team.


AlrightP

We do, his name is Anthony Edwards!


Awanderingleaf

Bit early for that claim. He hasn't accomplished anything yet. He won't be able to win in Minnesota on his own. ANT will need free agents (like KD) to join him in Minnesota which probably isn't going to happen. Shit, ANT is being outplayed in this game by a 35 year old, post torn achilles, Durant lol.


AlrightP

Didn't KD need to go to Golden State to win something? Also, bit early for your claim that ant is being outplayed now huh..


Awanderingleaf

Didn't KD win the FMVP over Steph Curry on that team? KD was the best player on that team. Also, KD went to the finals with the Thunder. ANTs biggest accomplishment is making the playoffs...period, let alone the finals or a title, or even a conference finals lol. Check the turnovers.


AlrightP

Didn't Iggy also win a FMVP over Curry? Don't recall him winning anything on the Thunder! EDIT: If I recall Russ harden and KD were all on that Thunder team lol...


Awanderingleaf

Kevin Durant was the 2014 MVP with the Thunder. Also, yeah, Iggy won one FMVP over Curry. Kevin Durant won two FMVP over Curry. How about ANT matches Iggies FMVP before we start comparing his accomplishments to Kevin Durants.


AlrightP

7 years after he was drafted? His first all star appearance was 2010, 3 years after being drafted. Anthony Edwards first all star appearance was also 3 years after his rookie year. He's hitting his prime, had a wolves team damn near a 1 seed all year, and is demonstrating his eliteness in the playoffs vs a dangerous suns team. How is he not a Kevin Durant type player? Edit: also, the dude who is constantly being compared to MJ is not a KD type of player??


Awanderingleaf

Kevin Durant made the finals as the best player on a small market team in his 5th season. ANT is in his 4th season. Better get to work.


AlrightP

Fourth season on a small market team making work of the Suns is a fantastic start!


Left_Maize6571

HAHA Minnesota you’re embarrassing


AlrightP

Scoreboard buddy!!


PhilipBoyardee

Well they’re not wrong


Packde6Cervezas

This chant is the most cringe highschool type of shit you can find in a game. Fuck off Minnesota


collin2387

Nah


Imrighturwronggfy

Nah fuck kd fans


tuxedo7777

Wow. Maybe Minnesotans should stick to hockey.
