Kevin Durant lets his feelings fly from time on social media. The Golden State Warrior has been mocked for his approach to taking on haters on social media, but can you blame him? We can sit for hours subtweeting, Facebook debating, and throwing subliminal statuses up, but he should be held to a higher standard because he’s an athlete? Even our heroes are human, and Durant’s Achilles Heel appears to be his vulnerability to what he perceives as shade.
The Warriors took a 3-0 lead over the TrailBlazers on Saturday (May 18), and no team in NBA history has ever come back from such odds. Golden State fans were quick to hop on social media to boast and brag, and one fan made it clear that the team was good even without KD who is out with an injury. “Doubt us without KD!!! Doubt Curry, Klay, and Dray!!! And keep thinking Milwaukee is better,” the fan wrote under a post on the Warriors Talk Instagram account. Curry, Klay, and Dray did win a championship without KD present, so the fan does have a minor point. KD didn’t like this though, and he hopped in the comment section to clap back. “Very divisive mikey,” KD responded, “let’s celebrate this win as dub nation. Fuck wrong wit u?”
