The internet is famous for its bizarre observations, especially with the NBA. From LeBron James’ clone to spectators puking on the court, this season so far has been as insane as it gets. Recently, Kevin Durant’s legs became the center of social media’s attention. And Kevin Durant clearly did not appreciate that.
When a picture of his legs went viral, Durant lashed back at the internet. And sometimes the internet does not appreciate a player standing up for himself. So obviously he received a lot of hate for being too honest in his response. Some even said that his language was sarcastically “classy” for his young fans. It is then that he decided that he does not care about what his young fans think of him.

Throughout his career, Durant has received a lot of criticism. From leaving Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State to making a super team even in the Brooklyn Nets. Durant’s decisions have always shaken up the NBA. Indeed a sign of him being a true superstar.
Arguably the most prolific scorer of all time, Durant knows his value to the league and his team. Therefore, him acknowledging his own drawbacks is a sign of true modesty. He realizes that there are things about him that a child should not emulate. However, that does not stop him from being himself.
