Kevin Durant has had no shortage of critics since deciding to sign with the Golden State Warriors. The hate didn’t stop on Thanksgiving.

Kevin Durant has endured criticism from analysts, former players, and even his peers, but the worst of all his come from the Twitter trolls.

When Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors, he knew he’d be heckled, but he probably wasn’t expecting to answer those insults during his Thanksgiving dinner.

Per Bleacher Report, Durant couldn’t ignore Thursday’s diss over rapper Dave East’s “KD” track from 2015:


KD answered this guy (who currently has 699 followers) less than 10 minutes later.

Durant got into it with another fan during the Pittsburgh Steelers game after a tweet about running back LeVeon Bell.

KD took to insulting the user’s photo by likening him to Sean Combs’ former personal assistant and star of Making the Band 2, Fonzworth Bentley.

KD hasn’t seen his production dip with the Warriors super team. He’s been incredible actually.

The 28-year-old is averaging 27.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.3 blocks on a slash line of .573/.425/.840.

Durant’s Warriors play the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night for the second time in three days.
