Kevin Durant went head-to-head with some fans and haters on Twitter

Kevin Durant’s talent on the court has always been apparent. But there was a time when he was also one of the most prolific tweeters in the NBA and now that he has won his first championship, it appears that he is getting back to his social-media ways.

Durant’s social media presence in recent years had become fairly tame, mostly constructed of the cookie cutter posts you would expect out of an athletic superstar who has large endorsement deals to protect and a few more years of understanding the media landscape for stars of his stature.

What had been updates from the club or insights into his food and drink preferences had become links to commercials he was in, news he was a part of, or shout outs to a friend and a project they were working on. 

But if some of his most recent replies are evidence to a trend, it’s quite possible that @KDTrey5 is back to his old ways.

It appears over the weekend that Durant has loosened up a bit when it comes to his social media sharing, responding to fans and trolls alike. 

Some people did not like that KD was getting petty, but Durant didn’t seem to care.

But there was one former fan in particular with whom the conversation got rather interesting, to say the least.

At the end of the day, Durant simply claimed he was flying and bored and thus decided to log on for a bit.

But here’s to hoping this side of Durant hangs out for a while longer — at least until the season tips off again.
