Kevin Durant Claps Back at Fan on Social Media

Phoenix Suns superstar Kevin Durant has taken on somewhat of a villain role since he joined the Golden State Warriors in the summer of 2016. He went from being a lovable and fantastic talent as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder to clapping back on social media to NBA fans and trolls, whether he’s using his own personal account or burner account.

On Saturday, Durant was at it once again on his X account. The Suns visited his former team, the Thunder, on Friday night. Durant and Phoenix came up short, 128-103. Prior to the game, the Suns starting lineup was introduced, and the Thunder fanbase showed no love to their former beloved superstar.

A video on X surfaced showing the Thunder fanbase booing Durant during the starting lineup introductions. Then, a fan on X by the name of Pablo quote tweeted the video and said, “You gotta feel bad for KD nobody respects his rings, and he has no place he can call home.”

The 2014 NBA MVP responded the only way he knew how:

“I’m at home everywhere I go,” Durant said on X.

Durant was a member of the Seattle Supersonics/Oklahoma City Thunder for nine seasons from 2007-16. In the summer of 2016, he shocked the basketball world when he decided to leave for the 73-9 Warriors team. He won two consecutive titles with the Warriors in his first two seasons in the Bay Area.

After only three seasons in Golden State, Durant decided it was time to leave and he headed East to join the Brooklyn Nets. He played there for two-plus seasons and failed to reach a Conference Finals.

Last season, before the NBA trade deadline, Durant had enough of the Nets and wanted to join Devin Booker and the Suns. The Suns gave up a haul for the 14-time NBA All-Star, which included Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson, Jae Crowder, four unprotected first-round picks, and a 2028 first-round pick swap.

There is no denying Durant’s overall talent. He is among the greatest basketball players ever and, indeed, of this generation. However, it’s clear the wound OKC fans suffered almost eight years ago still hasn’t healed.

While Durant won two championships with the Warriors, he never felt like a true Warriors player, especially when you compare him with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. And as for the Nets, he never took that organization to new heights like many expected he would.

Durant is set to be an unrestricted free agent after the 2025-26 season at age 38. Durant currently has the Suns as the seventh seed in the Western Conference with a 43-31 record.
