Draymond Green on Kevin Durant's Twitter mishap: 'I laughed in his face'

Draymond Green on Kevin Durant's Twitter mishap: 'I laughed in his face'

And for some, like ESPN's Stephen Jackson, the Warriors man may be in danger of being forever remembered for the mishap.

Apparently, it's actually rather common for athletes to use fake social media accounts to answer critics. A fan had responded to a post from Durant on Sunday, asking for "one legitimate reason" why the eight-times National Basketball Association all-star would leave the Thunder for the Warriors, a move he made last summer.

Then, the kid mad this face while Kanter and people behind the camera laughed. He tweeted criticism of his old coach, Billy Donovan, and said the rosters he played with in Oklahoma City weren't good enough to win a championship.

"I use Twitter to engage with fans", Durant said. You are that person now. Who creates a fake page?

Durant apologized for the tweets on Tuesday, calling them both "idiotic" and "childish", and admitted to being so embarrassed by his actions that he hadn't eaten or slept in two days. "I think everybody in here, including myself, has all done that where you're just living in the moment, enjoying what you're doing, and then you realize that probably wasn't the best idea".

Green said it was the only proper response after Durant gave him such grief for a social media gaffe during USA Basketball workouts prior to the Olympics. According to The Vertical, officials and players at Golden State have taken note of his "oddball offseason and are perplexed by it".
