Brooklyn Nets star player Kevin Durant has been in the news a lot lately. From being fined by the NBA in April to going on a date recently with former porn star Lana Rhoades, Durant has a way of keeping himself the center of attention.
But now, it’s his personal bodyguard who has been attracting some undue notice.
That bodyguard, named Antjuan Lambert is now banned from attending all subsequent NBA series games involving the Nets whether they take place in Brooklyn or Milwaukee.
Nets Bodyguard Violently Shoves Bucks Player During Game
Lambert is not only Durant’s personal security, but he also happens to be a Brooklyn Nets security official.
On June 10, 2021, during a game between the Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks, Lambert got into an altercation with Bucks forward P.J. Tucker. In the third quarter of the game, Tucker had fouled Durant, and the two exchanged some heated words. Immediately thereafter, things started escalating and becoming more physical. Seeing this, Lambert jumped into the mix and got into Tucker’s face.
The whole thing was caught on video. Lambert shoved Tucker and has been banned from the court by the NBA in response. The NBA has yet to release any official statement on the matter, but it is clearly not pleased.
Tim Bontemps, an NBA writer from ESPN, had this to say on Twitter: “A league spokesman said that the security official who made contact with PJ Tucker during Game 3 will not any remaining games in the series in Milwaukee, and won’t be assigned to the court in Brooklyn during the remainder of the Eastern Conference semifinal.”
