It’s kind of been a busy morning in the NBA. Kyrie gave us a great interview with First Take and Kevin Durant got absolutely BODIED by, well, himself.
Since joining Golden State, KD has made it very clear to all of us that he doesn’t care what his haters have to say. Yesterday, a Thunder fan tweeted at KD asking for a legitimate reason as to why he left OKC other than his championship aspirations. Well, KD replied, but I don’t think he realized what he was doing when he did.
When reading this you’ll notice that he’s speaking in the third person in his responses. In those responses, he’s trashing OKC’s roster, organization, and Billy Donovan from his main account. This isn’t typically the type of things you see professional athletes say about their former teams, just fans. After the tweets were deleted, people began to question if Durant might have meant to tweet his responses from a different account, which would have been set up specifically to defend himself.
The idea of an athlete having more than one account to battle trolls is absolutely bananas, especially when that athlete is KD. He has made it clear time and time again that he doesn’t give a shit what anybody says about him. However, somebody did some solid digging around on social media and basically proved that KD might actually be doing this. Click on this thread and check it out:

So this guy Tim Cato did some of the best investigative journalism I’ve ever seen on the internet and EXPOSED Kevin Durant. He found a Reddit thread that had the username to Kevin Durant’s “private” Instagram account. The account, which is followed by close friends of KD’s such as Big Sean, Andre Roberson, and Draymond Green, has been seen in comment sections defending Kevin Durant on multiple occasions. Kevin Durant’s brother has also tagged this account as KD in pictures he has posted from his main account. And the name of the account, “quiresultan”, is a combination of two street names in the part of Maryland where KD grew up.
There is no doubt in my mind now that KD has multiple accounts that he uses to defend himself on multiple social media platforms and I find this HILARIOUS. This is coming from the guy who literally just released this shoe, which was his way of saying he overcame the noise to win a championship:
The NBA has been a goldmine this off-season, there’s really no way to sugar coat it.
