Stephen A Smith keeps calling it the weakest move by an NBA superstar in league history. But Kevin Durant has long stopped caring about this.
There are few athletes who polarize fans as much as Kevin Durant does, in this day and age. His talent, his work and his laurels are unquestionable. KD has done what few NBA players have managed to do in the past 20 years – outplay LeBron consistently.
KD did it in 2 successive Finals series with the Warriors, giving LeBron a toast of his medicine from the 2012 NBA Finals. There came a point even in 2012 when LeBron stopped going for the KD assignment. He knew he’d be toast the moment KD got hot from the mid-range.

But instead of focusing on the play of one of the great talents of all time, NBA fans continue to fester hatred. 5 years after Kevin Durant announced his decision to sign with Golden State, NBA Twitter is still on his back.
Kevin Durant fires back at NBA fans for continually bringing 2016 up
When LeBron joined the Heat and announced his decision on national TV, he garnered tons of haters. But most of them shut up after he won 2 titles in Miami and went back to Cleveland after that.
One would’ve thought that KD would get some similar treatment after going to Brooklyn. But you couldn’t have been more wrong. In an age where NBA Twitter is constantly losing out on its average IQ points by the second, we get tweets like this.

Kevin Durant is no longer holding back at these internet trolls. He messed up that one time by revealing the existence of his burners. But he wears his OG account like a shield now, and he’s willing to roast you if you have the appetite for it.
This shit a holiday now???
