Kevin Durant isn't a fan of Joel Embiid's new "FEDS" nickname for the Sixers.
At Javale McGee's charity softball game Saturday, Durant asked Warriors teammates Andre Iguodala and McGee, "How they got a nickname and ain't played no games together?"
It didn't take long, however, for Durant to clarify Sunday what he meant on Twitter.
nickname=🚮🚮🚮 players=🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) June 25, 2017
Still, Ben Simmons is watching and he's ready to move on from nicknames too.
Simmons just wants to ball.
Forget the nicknames.... let's hoop 💯— Ben Simmons (@BenSimmons25) June 26, 2017
That much is evident by Simmons' Instagram post early Sunday morning.
After sitting out the 2016-17 season with a Jones' fracture in his right foot, Simmons, last year's No. 1 overall pick, is ready to hit the court this season.
Simmons will be apart a Sixers team with much intrigue. After the Sixers added Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick last Thursday, they set new team records in season ticket sales.
Everyone wants to see what Embiid, Simmons, Fultz and Dario Saric can do on the court. Hence the "FEDS" nickname: Fultz, Embiid, Dario, Simmons.
We know about Embiid's social media genius. Simmons' Twitter game isn't too shabby, either.
First, it was "crazy pills."
And now it's the Durant subtweet.
If there's anything we know, it's that …
The FEDS are watching.
