Durant is currently impressing audiences playing basketball for Phoenix Suns over in the USA.

The three-time Olympic gold medalist is widely considered one of the best NBA players of all time.

And on the latest episode of the Impaulsive podcast hosted by YouTuber and wrestler Logan Paul and Mike Majlak, Durant came on alongside IShowSpeed to discuss a range of topics.

And the conversation even shifted to football, as Durant was asked to settle a very important question indeed.

“Do you follow football, also known in America as soccer?” Majlak asked the 35-year-old.

“Sometimes,” replied Durant.

“Who would you say is the GOAT of football?” was Majlak’s follow-up question.

Durant paused for a second, taking a moment to think before giving his answer.

“Ronaldo,” he said.

Durant’s answer shows that game clearly recognises game, with international legend Cristiano Ronaldo also having racked up the accolades, including holding the record for the most goals scored at the Euros.

But Durant’s reply prompted whooping and delighted celebration from Speed, who was clearly glad to see the Lionel Messi-Ronaldo debate settled.

“Come on!” Speed cheered. “See he knows bro. He knows.”

But Durant was curious about Speed’s extreme reaction to his answer.

“Why do you love Ronaldo so much?” he questioned.

Speed replied: “Because he inspired me to become great when I was around 16, 17.”

Speed went on to describe the moment when he had met the Portuguese legend, who he credited as his role model.

He remembered: “Yeah, it didn’t seem real.”

“That is the best moment of my life,” he added. “That moment right there when I met Ronaldo.”
