Kevin Durant caught trying to defend himself from secret Twitter account?
Kevin Durant has never been one to back down from trolls on social media, and he may have accidentally outed himself as someone who uses secret accounts to defend his own honor.
On Sunday night, Durant — or someone using the Golden State Warriors star’s official Twitter account — responded to one of the countless people who have criticized K.D. for leaving Oklahoma City. Durant’s tweets were deleted almost immediately, and many people believe he was trying to defend himself from a secret account and ended up sending the tweets from his more popular account instead. What do you think?

Could those deleted tweets have been photoshopped? Sure, but that would mean this one was, too:

Durant can always say his account was hacked. It’s not exactly news that he didn’t feel the Thunder were good enough to win a title, so he could also just own the tweets. Though, the fact that Durant wrote them in the third person is pretty strange if he wasn’t trying to send them from a different account. Another possible scenario could be that a friend and/or someone on Durant’s social media team intended to send the tweets from his or her own personal account but forgot to log out of Durant’s.
While most star athletes try to ignore haters on social media, Durant has a long history of engaging trolls in debates — especially when they call him out for leaving OKC. We wouldn’t be surprised if he forgot to toggle to a different Twitter account and got bagged.
