You think you’ve seen it all…until you haven’t. That’s exactly what happened this week when news came out that Warriors star forward Kevin Durant had been using a fake Twitter account to respond back to some of the hate he was receiving on his main Twitter.
It’s such a childish move for a high schooler, let alone one of the best basketball players in the league.
I would like to preface the remainder of this article by acknowledging the Kevin Durant is one of the best players on the planet, if not the 2nd best. However, I have never been a fan of his character, demeanor and of course, his decision to go to the Golden State Warriors as a sellout.
Moreover, if you’re going to make a fake account to justify yourself, at least don’t get caught! That is probably the saddest part of the whole story is that his cover got blown because he forgot to switch accounts and was tweeting at people on his main one!
Here is some of what KD said. Notice the third person, thinking he’s on his fake account:
In politics, there are always assumptions made about our leaders that are usually false, but sometimes a scandal comes out the proves the prior notion to be true. This KD story is that exact example just about the NBA.
Could you imagine if this was LeBron pulling this type of petty garbage? The networks would never stop talking about it simply because The King is held to a high standard than everyone else.
Obviously, the people in Cleveland don’t respect Durant because he just beat us in the finals after bouncing from Oklahoma City to the Warriors. But this new storyline about KD truly proves he is a “cupcake” and is bothered by the haters and really his own decision-making in leaving what became home for him.
No matter how many titles he wins for the rest of his career, Kevin Durant will never come close to the prestige or class of LeBron, a man that has made mistakes himself. Clearly, winning a title wasn’t so special after all to the former Texas Longhorn because he felt the need to make a fake account and challenge his haters.
Hello, KD! Every successful person has haters, it’s just that they choose to ignore them and drown out the noise. Even here at CST, we get plenty of hateful replies that we just simply don’t respond to ever.
Congrats on bandwagoning and winning a title because you knew you couldn’t beat LeBron on your own in OKC. The decisions you made clearly still bother you and that makes me, as a Cavs fan, very happy.
If I were to give Durant any advice. It’s that he should pull a LeBron and either eventually go back to OKC or to a different team where he truly has to earn a title.
See you next June, you phony.
