"He would have 55 if he had a hamburger."
Following Thursday's 51-point outburst in a losing effort against the Toronto Raptors, Golden State Warriors' star Kevin Durant gave Drake the jersey off his back before retreating to the locker room. The two had exchanged words throughout the game, as Drizzy chirped KD from his court side seat and Durant responded by burying a series of unbelievable shots from behind the arc.
Footage of Drake and KD's post-game encounter was shown during the TNT broadcast and of course Charles Barkley had something to say about the matter. Specifically, the Hall of Famer had jokes about Durant's slender frame.
Barkley, aka The Round Mound of Rebound, quipped, "Jesus... Is that a cadaver?" when Durant took off his #35 jersey. He added that the two-time Finals MVP could have went for a double-nickel if he had eaten a hamburger.
Check out the Sir Charles' commentary in the video embedded below.
With last night's 51-point game in Toronto, Durant now has recorded 40+ points in three consecutive games which is a feat nobody has achieved since Russell Westbrook did so in February to March 2017, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The Warriors, 15-8, will return to the court on Saturday night in Detroit and Durant will have a little extra help as Stephen Curry is set to return from a groin injury that has sidelined him November 8.
