Brooklyn Nets superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have been keeping tabs on what TV analysts have been saying about them in the wake of the Nets’ disappointing first-round playoff exit.

Durant responded to criticism from Charles Barkley on Instagram, and Kyrie Irving sent out a series of tweets on Thursday criticizing the “puppet masters” who, in his words, “make their money by degrading BLACK/African/Indigenous community heroes.”

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, whom Irving is likely referencing, promised to respond to Irving on Friday, and you can be sure it’s going to be an explosive segment.
