Kevin Durant apologises for 'idiotic' comments about leaving Oklahoma City Thunder

Former "We Believe" Warrior Stephen Jackson is not a fan of Kevin Durant's recent actions on Twitter.

Because the tweets critical of Donovan and Durant's former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates were written in third person, many have speculated that he was attempting to argue with a fan through a separate account in which he could pose as a mere basketball fan.

He wasn't the only athlete upset by Durant's actions. During Captain Jack's appearance on on ESPN's The Jump, not only did Jackson lump KD in with all of the other twitter eggs of the world, but he also said he lost all respect for the reigning NBA Finals MVP. "I look at you now as I look at everyone else on Twitter and Instagram that has a little egg avatar". You're that person now. You can not be excluded from that.

A Cary teen who shot a question to Kevin Durant on Twitter got more than he expected in return - a revealing and reportedly genuine response from the National Basketball Association star. Who creates a fake page? If I want to respond to a person on social media, it has to come from my page with the verified check on it. "I have no respect for him". Kanter went on his own Twitter page to address Durant's posts and said: "Those cats, I call them FAMILY".

"Durant on Tuesday took ownership of his gaffe €" but vowed to continue replying to fans.

Durant said while he would continue to interact with fans, he expected to scale back his social media activity.

"That was just me being a total (expletive) idiot".

"I'll move on from that, it was tough to deal with yesterday".
