Kevin Durant Gets In A Back And Forth Altercation With Two NBA Reporters After Claiming He Can Shoot Good Fadeaway Shots Like Michael Jordan

Kevin Durant Gets In A Back And Forth Altercation With Two NBA Reporters After Claiming He Can Shoot Good Fadeaway Shots Like Michael Jordan

Kevin Durant stunned the NBA community with his trade request a couple of weeks ago. Since then, KD is yet to discuss his trade request publicly. But that doesn't mean Durant hasn't been active on his social media accounts.

If anything, he has continued to clap back at his haters on Twitter. This isn't the first time we have heard Durant getting into an argument with someone on Twitter, and it most definitely won't be the last.

This time around, KD decided to lock horns with two NBA reporters. It all started when Nick Gelso shared a video of Michael Jordan's beautiful fadeaway shot attempt in one of his recent tweets. But in the video, he took a shot at Durant as well. As expected, KD gave a savage reply to him.

Gelso: This is legend. This is legacy. @KDTrey5.

Durant: I can shoot a fadeaway too, just need a camera man and some Stan’s to hype it up.

That's not all. Gelso decided to take another shot at the 33-year-old. But his response didn't make much sense.

Kevin, Then u can tell the camera man making u look good to stfu and sit down just like when u tell ur fans to stfu and sit down. Shameful.

Amidst this back and forth battle between Gelso and Durant, SLAM writer Ron Agers also decided to respond to KD's tweet. He pointed out the fact that Michael Jordan always honored his contracts and never asked for trades. Durant simply asked how did Agers' tweet connected to KD's ability to shoot a fadeaway.

Agers: @Jumpman23 honored all of his contracts and didn't ask for trades though...

Durant: Please tell what that has to do with a fadeaway??

Amidst all this chaos caused by the argument between KD and the two reporters, NBA fans simply enjoyed it to the full extent. One fan also posted a hilarious video of how he would react if Durant shot a fadeaway shot in a Phoenix Suns jersey.

Despite these occasional interactions with Durant on Twitter or on any other social media for that matter, most are still wondering about the future of Kevin Durant.

Which team will he get traded to? In fact, with the trade talks being kind of stagnant, many are wondering if KD will just stay with the Nets? There are way too many questions but very few answers.
