Reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant had some harsh words for a dopey troll on his official Instagram account.
Kevin Durant is no longer boxing with kid gloves. If you call the NBA‘s leading big man out, he will come forward in full force, which is what one dopey troll had to learn that the hard way when he made a comment on KD’s personal Instagram account.

"“We play on the same team d**kh**d, who cares.”"
That is certainly one way to combat trolling. Durant has been dealing with a ton of frustration this season, which is completely understandable given his, as well as the Thunder’s current outlooks.
The team currently sits at 32-27; respectable, but certainly a far-cry from their recent dominance in the NBA’s regular season. Last year OKC won 59 games. This season they would be fortunate to get to 50 again. A string of injuries has limited Durant to just 27 games all season.
He is averaging 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game, in what many would call a down year for him. His 27.85 PER is still good enough for fourth in the league, which makes one wonder how much better the team’s record would be had Durant been on court all season.
Here is a look at the original string of comments. The entire post has since been deleted, but was preserved for our blissful enjoyment:
When Kevin Durant returns, the team will play better. But they need their leader to stay healthy if they want to make a serious run at a title in the perennially loaded western conference.
Right now, they hold just a half game lead over the New Orleans Pelicans and 1.5 game lead over the Phoenix Suns for the eighth and final spot in the playoffs. And as great as Westbrook has been all season, his production alone might not be enough to keep the other teams at bay.
