Chris Bosh showed during his years in Toronto that while a great player, hes no intimidator.

NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant says that hasnt changed even though Bosh has gone big-time with the omnipresent Miami Heat.

The two jawed at each other early in Oklahoma Citys loss to the Heat on Sunday.

Bosh had hammered James Harden on a layup attempt and Durant told Harden he should dunk on Bosh the next time.

Bosh responded that that wasnt going to happen, leading to an angry response from the normally laid-back Durant.

I was talking to my teammate and he decided he wanted to put his two cents into it, Durant said, according to Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman. Im a quiet guy, a laid-back guy. But Im not going to let nobody talk trash to me. Hes on a good team now so he thinks he can talk a little bit. But its a lot of fake tough guys in this league and hes one of them.

Ouch.

Durant continued: Im no punk. I wasnt even talking to him, first-off. He decided to butt in.

Bosh didnt even think technicals should have been called after the incident and said of Durant:

He stood his ground. I respect that.
