Kevin Durant's verified Twitter account oddly bashed his old team in the third person


Basketball star Kevin Durant’s verified Twitter account on Sunday night posted two tweets critical of his former team, according to Sports Illustrated.

Sports Illustrated on Monday reported that the tweets have since been deleted from Durant’s account.

“Man I respect the hell outta you but give me one legitimate reason for leaving a okc other than getting a championship,” Twitter user @ColeCashwell tweeted at Durant, referencing the latter’s time with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“He didn’t like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan,” Durant’s account tweeted, appearing to reference the Thunder’s coach.

Durant’s account then tweeted another message that may have alluded to his former teammate in Oklahoma City in Russell Westbrook.

“His roster wasn’t that good, it was just him and russ,” he said. “Imagine taking russ of that team, see how bad they were. KD can’t win a championship with those cats.”

Some Twitter users on Monday mocked Durant over the possibility he tweeted the posts, while others defended the Golden State Warriors member.

Sports Illustrated reported that Durant’s accounts deleted the tweets shortly after they were posted.

Multiple users captured them in screenshots, however, providing evidence of their existence after they disappeared.

Durant played with the Thunder from 2008 to 2016 before ultimately switching National Basketball Association (NBA) franchises.

The small forward’s swap to the Warriors proved a profitable one, with Durant ultimately winning his first NBA championship during the 2016-2017 season.

Durant was also named the most valuable player of last season’s NBA finals, the first time he achieved that honor.

The professional athlete also caused controversy last month when he vowed not to visit the White House to celebrate his team’s recent championship with President Trump.

“Nah, I won’t do that,” he told ESPN while discussing a potential invitation. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.”
