Brooklyn Nets superstar forward Kevin Durant responds to Donovan McNabb saying he’ll regret not staying with Warriors.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a slight Twitter altercation between an athlete and a former athlete. Should we call this an altercation? Well, regardless of what it is, it’s still a source of entertainment for fans.

On Tuesday, a story from ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan stated that Kyrie Irving‘s “mood swings” made Brooklyn Nets officials “queasy.” It’s a report that the Nets vehemently deny. But, whether it’s true or not, former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the matter.

McNabb pondered over the idea that Kevin Durant, who also signed with Brooklyn this past summer, will regret not staying in Golden State. It comes with a two-word Durant response.

“Relax mcnabb.” It’s such a KD-type reply to a tweet like that. Regardless of the fact that it’s a short answer, fans get a kick out of it. You can always count on Durant for a response on the social media front.

Durant expects to miss all of this year after rupturing his Achilles during the NBA Finals last June. The Nets signed him to a four-year deal this past summer, as they did with Irving. Thus, Irving is expected to lead this team prior to Durant’s eventual return.

The Nets have started the year 1-2, with their lone win coming against the crosstown rival-New York Knicks. Through the first three games, Irving is averaging 37.7 points and 6.3 assists on 45.6% shooting from the field.
