Steph Curry Wanted a Lob Pass for a Dunk, Kevin Durant Said ‘Nah Son'

With a little less than seven minutes remaining in the third quarter on Monday night, Steph Curry made a pretty sweet reverse layup off a great pass from Kevin Durant. But that description doesn't tell the whole story.

You see, Curry wanted Durant to throw the ball towards the rim so the two-time MVP could throw down a vicious alley-oop. We know this because Curry pointed in the air and started to gear up for his leap to the basket, but Durant had other ideas:

The Instagram account @warriorstalk posted the video with the caption: "Steph called for the lob. #Icon"

Shortly after the game ended, Kevin Durant left the comment: "Nah son go ahead and lay that lol." A terrific response from the two-time Finals MVP.

According to, Curry has never attempted an alley-oop dunk in his career. But he did make an alley-oop layup once back in 2015-16.

Somebody needs to find that footage...
