Wanda Pratt Rumors
Wanda Durant trailed her son Thursday from her own convertible Corvette, waving and shouting out to friends on the sidewalk and beaming all the way. This is a community that doesn’t care where Durant plays, only that he represents them well in whichever uniform he chooses. Durant proved strong enough to handle the barbs and will soon own a ring for his perseverance. “It was difficult to see, to hear,” Wanda Durant told The Vertical about the negativity her son had to endure in the past year. “And I still read the stuff on social media. It’s crazy. But I didn’t have the immediate notion to protect him, because he’s a man. He made a decision and that reaction came with the decision. So it was a part of him solidifying who he is as a man, to take the ridicule, to accept it and deal with it and move on from it. I didn’t like it as his mom. There were times I rebutted some of it – quite nicely, I think, honestly. But I didn’t want to protect him. He stood up and you have to show them who you are.”
On Thursday, he used his time within miles of the White House to twice blast Donald Trump. First telling TMZ, “We don’t [expletive] with him,” and expounding on those comments to ESPN. “Kevin has always allowed his personality and his game to speak for him,” Wanda Durant told The Vertical. “He’s a little more vocal now than he was then, but that’s not surprising, either, because he was very vocal at home, as a kid, where he was comfortable, in close quarters.”
“I’m gonna tell you what I did notice. You’re still getting your ass whooped by your mother … (he then proceeds to keep talking about how KD’s mom spanks him) … I love you man, congrats. Mama Durant, nothing but love for you too, but I know you still whooping his ass.”
Well, now that Durant put up an MVP performance to earn his first NBA title, Stephen A. Smith finally apologized. During Tuesday’s First Take, Wanda was again a guest on the show — wearing her NBA champions shirt — and she didn’t back down from Smith until he apologized for his year-long vendetta against her son.
