A seemingly harmless, innocent comment from one Warriors fan on Instagram triggered Kevin Durant on Sunday night. After mentioning how folks keep doubting their players, KD fired back for “dividing” the team.

Durant is obviously a little sensitive about the subject, but shouldn’t he be? In the wake of his Game 5 injury in the Western Semis, the Warriors are undefeated. Steph, Klay, and Draymond have elevated their play, and look more dominant in this stretch without Durant then they have all season long. For a star as good as he is, that has got to be a rough feeling.
Going back to the post, a few other users came to the defense of the original poster.

Durant’s injury is opening up a lot of eyes, but it is also giving him a lot of extra time. Besides having minutes to spend chattering with the fans, he has time to think about his upcoming free agency.
In light of everything, and his sensistive attitude towards the subject, it seems pretty obvious something is bugging the 10x All-Star.
