Did Kevin Durant take a shot at a WNBA player with a tweet he sent during the week? Some thought so.
Durant sent a tweet while presumably watching the New Orleans Pelicans-Utah Jazz game on Thursday and praised Brandon Ingram’s playing ability.

Durant’s tweet did not reference Ingram by name, but instead by his jersey number.
While that is a fairly common way for sports fans to communicate about players whose games they are watching, Durant’s tweet came a day after a WNBA player objected to Andre Iguodala praising her by referencing her jersey number instead of her name.
So was Durant merely paying Ingram a compliment and nothing more was intended, or was he also trying to rub it in to Aerial Powers a day later? That’s up to you to decide.
