Kevin Durant Rips Mavs Owner Mark Cuban: "He's An Idiot"

The Oklahoma City Thunder may have beaten the Dallas Mavericks 118-104 in Game 5 to advance to the Western Conference Semifinals, but the series didn't end when the whistle blew.

Mavs owner Mark Cuban made headlines on Monday morning by taking a shot a OKC's Russell Westbrook, saying Kevin Durant was the Thunder's only superstar:

I'm not going to talk about other teams' player, I guess other than what I just said, but Dirk for 15 years won 50 games no matter what. We put Moe, Larry and Curly next to him and we won 50 games. Russ is certainly an All-Star, but I consider Durant a superstar.

Durant certainly took notice of those remarks, and in his postgame press conference, he had some strong words for Cuban:

Westbrook played perhaps his best game of the postseason in the Game 5 win, posting 36 points with 12 rebounds and nine assists. Durant added 33 points, marking the ninth time both players have scored at least 30 points in the same playoff game.
