Kevin Durant Apologizes For His Tweets, Calls Them 'Childish'

An already exceptionally weird off-season got even weirder this week when NBA Twitter discovered that infamously thin-skinned Warriors superstar Kevin Durant had quite possibly been using alternate social media accounts to argue with his haters online. So it's not surprising to find out that the Golden State Warriors star has fake Twitter accounts so he can fight the good fight of making himself look good on the Internet.

"I use Twitter to engage with the fans", Durant said on Tuesday at an event in San Francisco. I do regret using my former coach's name and the former organization I played for. I do regret doing that. What I really love is to just play basketball, and I went a little too far. I was pretty upset with myself.

Someone tweeted at Durant and asked him to give a legitimate reason for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder outside of winning a championship. Kleiman said their greatest asset at the outset was an understanding of what they didn't know along with confidence they could identify great ideas and first-rate executive teams. He was playing for Toronto during Durant's final season in OKC. I think that they really enjoy it, and I think it's a good way to connect us all. I want to move on from that.

Cross-Platform Play Enabled on Fortnite for PS4 and XBox One
Gamers in the Fortnite subreddit spotted what they thought was cross-console play in the co-op sandbox survival game over the weekend.

But it seemed a tad harsh, and appeared to suggest Durant sometimes replies to comments from other, anonymous, Twitter accounts.

"I mean, it's only gonna keep being relevant the more we talk about it, so I just don't like to touch on it", Roberson said.

I've always been a big Durant fan, but he's proved to be a lot softer than I ever thought he was over this a year ago.

French Officials Don't Suspect Terror In Attack
French media reports are describing the attacker using the word "déséquilibré", meaning a psychological imbalance. One attack, which was supposed to happen in April leading up to the French presidential election, was thwarted .

With the evidence stacked against him, I honestly don't see how KD's going to get out of this one without recieving major backlash from fans everywhere.

"Just trying to take baby steps, no rush, have a little bit of time before the regular season hits", he said.

Durant added that he's still learning about tech investments and hopes to be a killer at it as he is on the basketball court.
