It appears Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has heard one too many jokes about his move from Oklahoma City to the Bay Area.

A joke from Peyton Manning’s opening monologue at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday made light of Durant’s move to the Warriors, but the this year’s NBA Finals MVP wasn’t having any of it.

It’s possible Durant is really just not a fan of gymnastics, but he, along with former teammate Russell Westbrook, didn’t look stoked to be the butt of Manning’s joke.

It’s also possible the stone-faced response was part of the bit.
