Very few players in NBA history have interacted with the fans as much as Kevin Durant. KD is about as active as one can get on social media, and he always takes it upon himself to defend his game and his legacy against his biggest haters.
This weekend, KD made some waves online after firing back at a number of fans who claim he has ruined his legacy with his tweets and his history of hopping to different teams.
Kevin Durant has had a very entertaining Sunday, going at it with fans who decided to attack him and his decision to request a trade from the Brooklyn Nets years after taking the 'easy way' and joining the 73-win Golden State Warriors.
It all started when somebody tagged him on Twitter, claiming he's making the game worse than it was when he made it to the NBA, which to KD replied just like he knows.
Fan: Na, but all this team hoppin after a little bit of adversity is kinda tainting your legacy
Durant: It’s all a matter of perspective my g. U say it’s tainted, I say it’s never been stronger.
In an exchange with another fan, he even threatened to delete his whole Twitter account before apparently deleting the post.
"Tomorrow I'm putting a timer up on when I'm deleting my twitter account, it's been #ruining my #legacy. Stay tuned."
There was a time when Kevin Durant was one of the most beloved and widely-liked players in the game. But after joining the Warriors and giving up on the Brooklyn Nets after just two active seasons, the case can be made that his decisions will not reflect well on his overall legacy.
As for Durant, it's pretty clear that he doesn't see it that way and that he doesn't care what people are saying about him. He's going to do what he feels is best for him and his family, and it's hard to blame him for that.
