Fresh off his NBA Championship, Kevin Durant took some time out of celebrating to chat with James Corden via FaceTime on The Late Late Show. The Finals MVP and his Golden State Warriors teammates were out partying hard until the wee hours of the morning. Durant told Corden that he didn’t get to bed until 6 a.m.

Durant apparently hasn’t had a drink in four months, so the celebration got off to a slow start. He said, “My first drink was pretty rough going down, so … I had a tough night.” While it wasn’t as tough as LeBron James‘s night, Durant said his hangover was finally getting better. Although, he added, “I got more ahead, so I gotta pace myself.” When James asked, “Is this an ongoing party?” Durant responded with, “Yeah, all summer.”

While many people think the Warriors might have lost Game 4 on purpose so they could win the championship at home, Durant quickly blocked that rumor. The Finals MVP said, “We wanted to sweep them, we wanted to go 16 and 0. But when we lost, we thought we would rather win on our home floor anyway.” And when Corden claimed that he would’ve thrown the game, Durant jokingly added, “We played like we did.”

The Late Late Show With James Corden airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.
