Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is from Washington, D.C., and he is a big Redskins fan. You can ordinarily see him tweeting about his team’s games on Sundays, and offering praise of Robert Griffin III.

Durant was so stoked about the Redskins’ 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16 that he ended up talking some trash:

Washington is 9-6 after winning its sixth-straight game, and those “cupcakes” he was referring to are Washington’s NFC East rival, the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins are in first place in the NFC East, a game ahead of the Cowboys, and stand a strong chance of reaching the playoffs for the first time since the 2007 season.

We’re eagerly awaiting a response from noted Cowboys fan LeBron James. It’s just one more thing the NBA’s two biggest stars are in competition about, though after Dallas’ loss to New Orleans, he probably doesn’t have much to say.

  • Suit up Kevin and teach my boyz a lesson....they would absolutely destroy you. Love you at OKC but trash them Cowboys is not cool !
  • Yes, Keven Durant has always been a redskin fan. He was born and raise from Prince George county in Maryland. He also attending the cowboys and redskins game last year in MD before rg3 was even drafted. You could google that and see him with Jeff Green another MD Native and redskin fan. And the word "cup cake" is being nice.
  • Kev!! You are a great NBA player, but as already mentioned suit up Sunday and get cha big piece............baba.. the 4skins going downnnn
  • I'm a RG3 Fan myself! I hated he got drafted by the Redskins! I'm a Cowboys Fan, always been one since I was a little kid! When the Redskins moved up to number 2 in the Draft, I said Oh, Oh! The Redskins weren't crap before! Now these so called Fans like Durant calling us the Cowboys, cupcakes? Kevin, I like you and respect you as an NBA Baller! But please don't talk about my Cowboys! You're playing with Fire! Where will you be if the Redskins loose next week? Back under a rock maybe? Lol!
