@BulletsForever, the SB Nation blog that covers the Wizards, tweeting about Kevin Durant’s face when Peyton Manning slammed him in an opening monologue at Wednesday night’s ESPYs. Manning joked that Durant –probably wants to join the gold medal-winning U.S. gymnastics team. Durant joining already established winners has been a running joke since the forward left the Thunder last year to sign with the star-studded Warriors, who went on to win the title. Thursday, it was reported that Durant may have been in on the joke:
For those interested, I’m told Kevin Durant was in on the Peyton Manning gymanistic team roast at #ESPYS2017. KD played his part well.

Kellyanne Conway shares her flash cards with Fox News.
@danwlin, coming up with alternative facts for the text on Kellyanne Conway’s flashcards.

No,” Conway said. “I see illusion and delusion.” The cards had the words conclusion, collusion, illusion and delusion on them, but social media went crazy turning the image into a meme.
