Kevin Durant is hands down one of the most reachable personalities via the pathway of social media, especially Twitter. More often than not, he responds to hate threads that call on him.

After the Nets defeated the Bucks 125-86 in Game 2 of their EC Semis tie, KD’s 32 points did not make as many headlines as much as a controversy did. His Twitter banter eclipsed everything else as the 11x All-Star made it his mission to shut down the baseless claims being directed at him.

The 39-YO had earlier commented on how Anthony Davis and Durant making a baby would most probably produce a Giannis Antetokounmpo in terms of physicality. Post that comment, Jay apparently met KD at a holiday party where Durant allegedly told him, “Don’t you ever compare me to Giannis.”

This happened after Sharpe reacted to a fake quote of KD arguing that he was the GOAT over LeBron James and things turned nasty. Durant ensured he didn’t let Shannon get away with his foul remarks because of poor research.

It came to a point where the sports presenter had to block KD from his social media. That incident and the current one prove that one mustn’t push KD too much. He is not somebody who will stay quiet over comments that harm his legacy.
