Kevin Durant Strongly Denies Rumors that LeBron Tried to Recruit Him to Join the Lakers - Sports Gossip
That's a strong denial

Warriors star Kevin Durant had to address rumors that LeBron James is trying to recruit him to join the Lakers.  He didn't dance around the topic, KD denied the rumors.

Stephen A. Smith was the one who got the rumors started over the summer by claiming he received two phone calls that said LeBron tried to get KD to join the Warriors.

Via The Mercury News:

Warriors forward Kevin Durant strongly disputed the accuracy of ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reporting on “First Take” that LeBron James texted Durant about joining the Lakers before free agency. Did James do that? Durant: “Hell no.”

“That was all false. All false. 100 percent false,” Durant told Bay Area News Group. “He didn’t talk about none of that stuff.”

You have to believe Durant.  Being recruited isn't in his cupcake playbook.  He would only join the Lakers after losing to them.
