Kevin Durant Apologizes for 'Childish' and 'Idiotic' Tweets

Without acknowledging that he uses separate Twitter accounts, Durant said he regretted taking it too far and "childishly" calling out his former coach.

"That was childish. That was idiotic. I regret doing that and I apologize". Ironically the topic of his fireside chat was how to control your brand. All that tweet did was give the Thunder even more reason to get after the Warriors when they play this upcoming season. "I was basically on my own", Durant told Steinberg.

Durant's account, @KDTrey5, responded twice, both in a third-person voice. "Kd can't win a championship with those cats".

This is amusing, of course, because Durant recently deleted two tweets in which he said some not-so-nice things about the OKC franchise, Thunder players and head coach Billy Donovan. When asked why he deleted it, Durant kept his reply short and simple. Yet, he denied the existence of a burner Twitter account.

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 past year. "They see how much these startups have affected the world in general, and I think they want to be a part of change". I'm going to move on, and I'm going to play basketball. He also included a message where he said "I don't care what anyone says".

"What I have to do with that time I'm given to talk about these deals is figure out the concept, if it's the right company to introduce him to the executive team", Kleiman said.

On July 4, 2016, Kevin Durant announced that he would be leaving the Thunder to join the Golden State Warriors.

Durant said while he would continue to interact with fans, he expected to scale back his social media activity. "Used to dig this guy", wrote Twitter user Stew Blake.

Durant said he hasn't eaten or slept since the incident.

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).

To Durant's credit, he said he's ready for the blowback. "If you get AI refs, they'd call every touch foul and I get away with a lot".
