Be careful if you tag Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant in anything on social media. He might just come after you.
Durant was tagged in a post that said he couldn't lead a team like new Los Angeles Laker LeBron James or Warriors teammate Steph Curry, and we'll just say he wasn't too happy about it.

The post Durant was tagged in was a picture of him, disgruntled San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, and New Orleans Pelicans stud Anthony Davis. In the picture, the fan opined that all three were elite players who could not lead teams themselves because they lack in playmaking abilities and leadership skills.
Durant responded by commenting on the post, saying, "Bruh go sweep your dorm room, u don't know hoops. Stop tagging me in this trash."

It didn't stop there, though. After commenting on the photo, Durant went into the fan's DMs, berating him and calling him a knock off Stephen A. Smith.
The fan responded with, "You know it's true that's why your insecure a** responded to me. Why don't you actually prove you can LEAD a team to a championship. Not even in the same galaxy as LeBron."
