All the way back in 2017, fans began speculating that Kevin Durant had a burner account that he used to defend himself on Twitter. He later denied it, but ever since he's been a lot quieter on social media.
Now, he's finally getting candid about the situation in a new episode of The Boardroom on ESPN+. Speaking with Jay Williams, he said, "I wasn't used to that amount of attention, you know, from playing basketball. I wanted a place where I can talk to my friends without anybody just butting in my conversations or mixing my words or taking everything out of context because I enjoyed that place."
He continued, "I had an Instagram that I just use for my friends and family. Like it's a cool place for me just to be me instead of worrying about Bleacher Report or Barstool mixing up anything I want to say to CJ or friends from back home, you know?"
