Kevin Durant’s love affair with his haters just reached a whole new level.
The Golden State Warriors forward has become increasingly active on Twitter in recent months, responding directly to all the critics who ballyhooed his decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder last summer.
But late Sunday night, one Twitter user noticed something odd: Durant was defending himself in a back-and-forth with a fan — while speaking in the third person.
Here’s Durant’s first strange tweet: “He didn’t like the organization or playing for (Thunder coach) Billy Donovan. His roster wasn’t that good, it was just him and (Russell Westbrook).”
And another, which blatantly references Durant in the third person: “KD can’t win a championship with those cats.”
So, what the heck is going on here? Some theorized Durant actually has a secret Twitter account to respond to his own critics and just forgot to switch to that account before tweeting this. Another (slightly more plausible) theory is that Durant has people who occasionally run his Twitter account, and one of those people accidentally tweeted from Durant’s account instead of his or her own.
The tweets quickly were deleted, but the damage already was done, as the internet ruthlessly mocked the Warriors star for having such thin skin.
