Kevin Durant and Brittney Griner were recently seen shaking hands and giving each other hugs in a Twitter video before Durant's first game with the Suns.
Once the video was posted online, another video from 2020 resurfaced. In the video, Brittney is seen kissing Durant on the cheek, which sparked dating rumors.
Griner reportedly spent 10 months in a Russian prison in February 2022 due to drug-related allegations. Authorities in Russia discovered a cannabis vape cartridge in her luggage, leading to her arrest.
Durant and Brittney have been friends for quite a while now, and during her detention, he supported her by showing off his pin that read, "We are BG."
Even though they are close friends, they are not dating. The rumors are fake since Brittney Griner has been happily married to Cherelle Griner since 2019 and Durant is still single.
The account that spread the story is well-known for publishing sarcastic content. Recently, they spread another rumor about Ja Morant being suspended indefinitely, which was also fake.
Durant is one of the best players in the league right now, and Griner, on the other hand, was the best player in the WNBA playoffs, averaging 20.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game.
KD just made his debut for the Phoenix Suns and helped them get the win. Phoenix still has a long way to go before they can claim the championship, but after one game, it is evident that this Suns squad is different with KD on the floor.
