Kevin Durant got into a verbal exchange with two fans prior to Thursday's game between the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks after he was allegedly called a bitch while heading onto the court.

WFAA sports anchor Jonah Javad captured the moment when the incident took place. While there is no disputing that the word was said while Durant and his teammates were jogging onto the court, the 14-time NBA All-Star clearly believed he was the intended recipient and walked over to confront two fans.

It's difficult to hear their exchange over the music playing in the arena, but it appears nothing was resolved, judging from Durant's reaction as he walked away.

Durant eventually returned to tell security to not escort them out of their seats.

Durant will likely be asked about the encounter after the game.

KD is no stranger to getting into with fans throughout his career. Back in 2018, Durant told two Mavericks fans to "watch the fucking game and shut the fuck up" after they kept calling him "cupcake," a word used during his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder that referred to someone who was "soft."

Dallas was also the site of tonight's incident.

Durant became visibly upset after hearing someone call him soft last year.

Durant does not take too kindly to constructive criticism either. When a fan implored him to take over the game, KD told the person to "shut the fuck up and sit down."
