Kevin Durant looks on during the second quarter of Brooklyn’s game against the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center on the 27th. December 2020.

Although Kevin Durant hasn’t played basketball in over a month, he has still managed to keep his name in the public eye with his social media accounts.

Earlier this week, Durant made headlines after he sent a fan to the boards in Brooklyn, arguing that he couldn’t do anything himself. Durant’s comments even caught the attention of seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady.

Durant had harsh words for Michael Rapaport.

Durant came under scrutiny on Tuesday for his social media activities.

Depending on your age, you know Michael Rapaport for different reasons. Some know him for his role as a delivery man in the hit film Ice Cube, which premieres Friday, while others know him as a Knicks superfan. But everyone knows Rapaport for his ability to get under people’s skin.

His latest victim is the Nets’ KD All-Star. Rapaport leaked screenshots of his Instagram DMs showing a recent exchange between him and Durant, and boy, did it get ugly.

I get threats and disgusting messages daily, but in my wildest dreams I never thought @KDTrey5 would be one of them. Now he’s threatening me, attacking my wife, wants to fight. It has to be America’s favorite, right? #ImDaRealMVP pic.twitter.com/l1VQfGMMRF

The nature of the dispute stems from an interview with Inside the NBA earlier this season, in which Durant was unwilling to answer Hall of Famer Charles Barkley’s question about his health. Durant’s disinterest could have to do with Barkley’s negative comments about teammate Kyrie Irving’s refusal to talk to the media earlier this season.

Rapaport blames KD for the way he handled the interview and suggests he didn’t do it in the first place.

According to Durant, the DM leak is just a tip of the hat about the failed talks between him and Rapaport.

Mike and I talk to Crazier, and today he’s pissed….. It’s my fault, Mike, damn it!!!, Durant said via his Twitter account.

Mike and I are talking to Crazier and today he is furious. ….My mistake Mike, damn it !!!!

Durant’s social media accounts continue to follow him

Durant’s social media accounts have gotten him into trouble in the past. In 2017, Durant found himself in hot water after being caught defending his decision to leave OKC last year.

KD has secret accounts that he uses to protect himself and he forgot to activate them when he responded to this guy. I’m really speechless. pic.twitter.com/9245gnpa3c

I’m not used to that kind of attention, you know, playing basketball. I needed a place where I could talk to my friends without wasting time and without mixing up words and taking things out of context, because I loved this place, Durant said during his speech in the boardroom.

I try to lead a normal social life ….

Although he was caught using his Burner account and embarrassed, Durant still uses his Burner account.

I still have a burning Twitter account. When people used that burner thing on me, they thought I was just there to talk to S.T. But I’ve been in many different communities with my assailant, Durant told Barstool via Nets Wire.

So when I deleted it, I thought: What the… These people made me delete something I love, my burner account. So I had another one. I just do my own thing on the side, you know.

It’s impossible to tell if the exchange between Durant and Rapaport was serious or an innocent joke about the language used in KD’s tirades. It will be interesting to see if the league takes action against the NBA’s most valuable player in 2014 or not.
