Kevin Durant didn't forget about the taunts.
In February, when Durant returned to Oklahoma City for the first time as a member of the Warriors, Thunder fans heckled him with t-shirts featuring cupcakes, a reference to Durant being soft for joining the 73-win Warriors.
On Saturday, the cupcake graphic made a return with one slight change.
Durant, playing in JaVale McGee's JugLife Celebrity Softball game at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, showed up to the stadium wearing a cupcake hat. But instead of a cheery on top, a championship ring was superimposed on top of the cupcake.
Kevin really put a ring instead of a cherry on top of the cupcake 👏🏽 pic.twitter.com/1GVaFNbQet— Julie Phayer (@juliephayer) June 24, 2017

So Durant, an NBA champion, got the last laugh.
JaVale McGee spent the first eight years of his NBA career bouncing between four different teams.
Then the Warriors came along and took a flier on him prior to the 2016-17 season, signing him to a one-year contract.
He played a career-low in minutes per game, but he made the most of his time on the court, as he recorded the highest field goal percentage of his career.
And he became a cult hero with Warriors fans due to his numerous high-flying alley-oop dunks, garnering some of the loudest cheers among fans.
Now the free agent center hopes that he's found a home in Oakland.
Prior to his JugLife Celebrity Softball Game at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, McGee was asked if he think he's coming back to the Warriors for the 2017-18 season.
"I hope so, I hope I'm coming back," McGee said, according to KTVU.
Free agency begins July 1.
