Deleted tweets appear to show Kevin Durant trying to anonymously criticise Thunder teammates, explain why he joined the Warriors

Though Kevin Durant has been on the Golden State Warriors for over a year and already won a championship, some people still appear to be upset about his decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016.

Durant, who has been rather vocal and active on Twitter this offseason, appeared to defend that move on Sunday, though it’s not clear if he meant to do so from his own account.

As one Twitter user noted, since-deleted tweets from Durant appeared to show him responding to a fan upset about his move to the Warriors.

In the tweets, Durant said the Thunder lacked the proper depth behind Russell Westbrook and that he didn’t want to play for Thunder coach Billy Donovan. However, the tweets were in third-person, leaving some to wonder if Durant meant to defend himself from a secret account and forgot to change accounts.

Durant didn’t seem to try to hide the potential mistake, telling another Twitter user he just decided to delete the tweets.

Durant has spoken at length about his decision to join the Warriors and tried to quell any drama surrounding his relationship with Westbrook.

With a year past since his free-agency move, it would seem that the controversy over the decision would have faded, but he may have given it new life with a little bit of a Twitter goof.
