Ironically the topic of his fireside chat was how to control your brand. This Twitter encounter with a fan is a bit different with Durant stating he couldn't win a championship with Billy Donovan and the roster that Oklahoma City had at the time.

What do you think of the Warriors star's mishap?

Durant demurred, saying with a smile, "I'd rather keep it at the human judgement".

"He didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan". It appears that KD has "burner social media accounts" where he tweets support for himself anonymously when he's heckled.

It was later revealed that Durant used a personal Instagram account to respond to users.

So as soon as Durant stepped on stage and sat down, Jordan Crook, the TechCrunch panel moderator, asked him to explain what happened.

The respsonse to Durant's social media gaffe from the weekend has been pretty amusing.

Durant, or whoever was running his Twitter account that day, chose to respond.

"I don't think I'll ever stop engaging with my fans", Durant said. I really enjoy it and it's a good way to connect us all.

Suu Kyi words 'bode well' for bid for Myanmar probe — United Nations team

He also said he wanted to move on from the ordeal. It was tough to deal with yesterday.

So of course Embiid took the opportunity to troll Kevin Durant about his recent twitter folly.

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.

Durant said he hit rock bottom.

One of those players is Enes Kanter, whom the Thunder acquired before the 2015-16 season to take some of the scoring load off Durant and Westbrook's shoulders (obviously the move did not satisfy Durant).

Durant said the blowback from his decision briefly messed him up.

"And those cats, I call them FAMILY", Kanter wrote. "And I get away with a lot".

Now that KD has put the online critics to rest (for now), hopefully we can all move on to more important things, like Melo's superstar pickup games in NY. So it's either Durant talks about himself in the third person, or that he really f***ed this one up, which is probably the right answer.
