Kevin Durant admits he still uses burner account on social media


A couple months after the Warriors won the 2017 NBA title, Kevin Durant got caught using a burner account on social media.

You all probably remember the specific tweet:

“I don’t regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter," KD explained a couple of days later. "I do regret using my former coach’s name and the former organization I played for. That was childish. That was idiotic, all those type of words. I apologize for that.”

So he no longer uses a burner, right? 


"I'm still gonna to do the burner thing. I'm still gonna do that," KD said recently on Showtime's "All the Smoke" podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson. "Yeah. For sure. Certain people -- I'm gonna come back on my regular account.

"But, I got the burner (laughing). I just slipped up that one time. We know why I slipped up (laughter)."

We aren't gonna speculate on the "why," even though based on the video above we have a pretty good idea what he's referring to (laughing).

So heads up -- if you criticize the two-time NBA Finals MVP on Twitter and somebody sends you a reply, you just might be interacting with KD himself.
