Kevin Durant is not a gambling man.

The league MVP jumped on Twitter Wednesday to dispel rumors that he lost $20,000 in a bet to west coast rapper The Game. The Game - aka Jayceon Taylor - posted a video Tuesday on his Instagram account, saying that he bet Durant $20,000 he could make a 3-point shot from NBA range.

Durant's Twitter response Wednesday morning, which has since been deleted, said "Aight this is it. I never bet the game 20k cash. I never bet him. I told him I would give his aau team kd gear. That's all."

The Game claimed that if he made the shot, Durant would have to pony up $20K to The Game's AAU youth basketball team, and play on his Drew League basketball team in Los Angeles.

Durant's responded to the rumors by saying that he didn't bet The Game, but will donate his team some KD gear.



UPDATED (2:06 p.m.): The Game got defensive on Instagram because TMZ.com posted a story Wednesday claiming that Durant said "straight up ... 'HE'S LYING.'"

Everything was cleared up later in the day, when the rapper apologized, saying he jumped the gun on calling out Durant for "not wanting to help the kids."
