Steve Kerr had some comments about Kevin Durant using Twitter to respond to NBA fans. So naturally, Durant went to Twitter to respond to the words said by his former coach.

“I don’t see a problem with me interacting with basketball fans; it should be encouraged. Steve should’ve also said that I’m never late and I work through every rep in practice with game speed. That should be more interesting than what I do on Twitter.”

Kevin Durant

Durant has never been afraid to respond to something he disagrees with. He is constantly on Twitter, giving his opinions on other NBA fans’ opinions about him. He’s also even admitted to using burner accounts on the app to respond to fans as well.

Kerr took Durant out to dinner because he was tired of how his superstar was handling social media. Durant was receiving a lot of scrutiny for his decision to leave Oklahoma City and join the Warriors.

Kerr had this to say regarding how he feels Durant should handle everybody’s criticism.

“You know what I respect about LeBron? I respect the fact that he got to Miami and he got sick of the narratives, sick of the haters, all the talk. You know what he did? LeBron just said fuck it and was great. Same with Michael, same with Kobe. Same with all the greats. They all had to say fuck it and then they were all on that next level. So you know what you gotta do? You just gotta say fuck it like LeBron did.”

Steve Kerr

Durant doesn’t like Kerr’s comments because he feels Kerr should credit his preparation and work ethic. However, Matt Sullivan clarified that Kerr said Durant “couldn’t have handled the backlash any better.”

Kerr has the utmost respect for Durant as a basketball player. He has said multiple times that Durant is the most talented player on the planet. Kerr has never been a huge fan of how Durant responds to people on Twitter. However, that will not stop Durant from voicing his opinions whenever he doesn’t agree with somebody.
