Kevin Durant is one of the best basketball players on the planet. A smooth, spindly man among boys on the hardwood.

But on the internet, he’s the helpless child getting owned so routinely you’d think it was his job.

An Instagram account run by a self-described “teenage basketball analyst” shared a common opinion about KD on Tuesday.

The endless pit of insecurity he is, Durant chimed in.

Then he slithered into the account’s DMs to compare the kid in charge of it to Stephen A. Smith. An insult if there ever was one.

The kid, Kalyb Champion, flexed on KD by commending him for showing the maturity to at least put his own name behind his thoughts.

“Glad you owned it this time and didn’t hide behind a burner.”


The most hilarious part: Back in November, KD essentially agreed with the sentiment expressed by Champion.

“Steph Curry is the face of the franchise, and that helps me out, because I don’t have to,” Durant told GQ. “I don’t want to have to be the leader. I’m not a leader.”

KD’s so childish he can’t even handle criticism he agrees with.
