Cupcakes have played a crucial role in the beef between former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.

On Thursday night, Durant seemed to add fuel to this fire.

While posing for a picture with San Francisco Giants mascot Lou Seal, No. 35 proudly held a plate of the small desserts, a reference that goes all the way back to the day he joined the Golden State Warriors.

Hours after Durant's announcement, Westbrook posted an Instagram picture of a Fourth of July-themed cupcake display.

Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins confirmed in October that it was Westbrook's way of calling Durant's decision "soft": 

Then, when Durant returned to Chesapeake Energy Arena as a visitor in February, the OKC faithful showered him with "cupcake" chants and shirts:

Draymond Green and other Warriors players wore the shirts after demolishing the Thunder:

Not only did the Warriors beat the Thunder, but Stephen Curry and Draymond Green had some cupcake fun last night 😂 https://t.co/8zoU8dqLhm https://t.co/1a8WzXRNjm

Keep tabs on Westbrook's Instagram in the coming days. Maybe he'll find another cupcake platter to post in response.
