2017 NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant appears to have committed an embarrassing faux pas on his Twitter account - or, accounts, depending on how you see it.
The subject of some derision when he decided to leave Oklahoma City Thunder for the star-studded Golden State Warriors last year, Durant obviously still feels the need to defend his decision.
KD has secret accounts that he uses to defend himself and forgot to switch to them when he was replying to this guy I'm actually speechless pic.twitter.com/9245gnpa3c

When questioned why he would leave Oklahoma for any other reason than personal gain, Durant's Twitter account took to the second & third-person in defending his position.
Now, while Kevin Durant may well have an (in)capable team in charge of his "personal" Twitter account, the conclusion being drawn from this incident would suggest that whoever was typing this impassioned defence of Durant may well have forgotten just which Twitter account they were logged into.
Is it possible that Durant or his helpers have anonymous Twitter accounts on the go to combat potentially abusive comments? A lot of people seem to think so.
get you a man that looks at you the way kevin durant's burner accounts look at kevin durant

I can't trust any of you anymore. Any one of you could be a fake account operated by Kevin Durant to push his agenda.

Kevin Durant really did create fake profiles so he could argue with people who criticized him. You cannot make this stuff up. What a league.

I guess Kevin Durant can no longer say he doesn't care what the haters think.

With this stunning display of incompetence, how long will it be until the next major sports star similarly shows the extent of their real social media presence?
