United States media reports have said the 28-year-old meant to post the remarks from a fake Twitter account.

A remorseful Kevin Durant said he hit "rock bottom" days after signing with the Warriors, including an episode when he yelled at his closest adviser, asking him "why did you let me do this to my life?" Durant explained he didn't like the organization or coach Billy Donovan, and he was highly critical of the roster beyond Russell Westbrook.

He [Durant] was feeling the full brunt of the Internet's fury about his perceived betrayal of Oklahoma. and the flak he was taking from people in Oklahoma City who had once professed deep affection for him was overwhelming.

The 29-year-old Warriors star felt "f--ed up for a while" after he left his former Thunder team and signed with the 73-win Warriors during free agency in 2016, he said in an interview released by San Francisco's Modern Luxury Wednesday.

"Well, I'm not angry". Kanter also said Durant never complained about Donovan or the organization as a whole during his time with the Thunder, and he couldn't understand why Durant suddenly made a decision to air out his grievances publicly at this point in his career.

"I really enjoy it, and it's a good way to connect us all, but I'll scale back a little bit right now and just focus on playing basketball", said the league MVP for the 2013-2014 NBA season.

"I was anxious about how my peers were going to feel about me", Durant said. If you're Kevin Durant, you don't do that. I remember when he was here - I played with him one-and-a-half years - and when he was here, this organization and these fans, this whole state, gave him everything he asked for, everything he wanted. Come on, man. Just go do your thing. That's what happens sometimes when I get into these basketball debates about what I really love, to play basketball.
