Watch: Manning roasts Durant, asks Westbrook to chime in

Peyton Manning is stirring the pot as the host of the ESPYS.

"Our gymnastic team is so dominant that Kevin Durant told me he wants to play for them next year," the retired NFL quarterback said.

Durant, who left the Oklahoma City Thunder in free agency last summer to join the powerhouse Golden State Warriors, didn't seem to find the joke funny at all.

Manning wasn't done there, though. He then asked Durant's former co-star Russell Westbrook for his thoughts on the matter.

The reigning Finals MVP, who went on to win the ESPY for Best Championship Performance, later tweeted an emoji that looks eerily similar to the face he made in response to Manning's joke.
