Kevin Durant got caught sending out some unkind tweets about his old team, and he has decided to own those comments.
A day after the Warriors forward criticized his former Thunder teammates and head coach Billy Donovan, Durant apologized for his “childish” and “idiotic” social media behavior. While making an appearance on stage at TechCrunch 2017 in San Francisco on Tuesday, Durant said he took his interaction with a fan “a little too far.”
Durant said he will continue to engage with fan via social media but will be more careful and responsible with his words. Durant has since deleted the tweets about the Thunder, but there is still the question of why he responded in the third person. And that’s not even mentioning the fact that Durant’s time with the Thunder was extremely successful, including the team’s 2015-16 run under Donovan which nearly ended in a trip to the NBA Finals before the Thunder fell to the Warriors despite having a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. Let’s hope this doesn’t affect Durant’s play on the court, as he and the Warriors are considered heavy favorites for next year’s NBA Finals.
