Does Kevin Durant have secret social media accounts to defend himself against trolls (and fans) questioning his departure from Oklahoma City Thunder? It sure seems like it.
Durant allegedly exposed himself by mistakenly tweeting from his verified account instead of one of his secret accounts, and now everybody knows the truth. Or at least, that’s the theory floating around the internet.
On Sunday (Sept. 17) a fan tweeted to Durant, “I respect the hell outta [sic] you but give me one legitimate reason for leaving okc other than getting a championship.”
A tweet from Durant’s account replied that he “didn’t like the organization” or playing for his former coach, Billy Donovan. “His rosters wasn’t that good,” the tweet read.
An accompanying tweet also mentions Durant’s former teammate Russell Westbrook and concludes: “KD can’t win a championship with those cats.”

Durant announced his departure from OKC last year, before joining the Golden State Warriors, where he finally earned his first championship ring.
In an essay for The Player’s Tribute, the NBA star wrote in part that he felt like Oklahoma City “raised” him.
“It taught me so much about family as well as what it means to be a man. There are no words to express what the organization and the community mean to me, and what they will represent in my life and in my heart forever,” explained the 28-year-old small forward. “The memories and friendships are something that go far beyond the game. Those invaluable relationships are what made this deliberation so challenging.”
Despite such a well-written farewell, it appears that Durant is still in defense mode.

Imagine being Kevin Durant and winning your first championship yet still logging into this app to argue with fans. That’s crazy
