It must be painful for someone as competitive as Durant to be watching from the sidelines. In January, his frustration seemed to boil over. He fired back at a number of fans, including those chastising the Nets for their struggles at the time (they’re currently No. 7 in the East) and him for joining the Nets.

What does it say?

You give a fuck that no one gives a fuck about the nets. Long story short, u care

Being relevant in the eyes of fans doesn’t make the ball go in the basket. So it really doesn’t matter but go ahead and claim something

You’re gonna watch anyway. Doesn’t matter

U think about the nets everyday, how are we irrelevant?

The reality is that you wanted me to do what You wanted me to do. I didn’t and now you feel some weird way about it. Get over yourself bro, i know u got a lil platform but come out the clouds. It’s not real

U have to realize. A lot of men call me soft to prop themselves up. It’s deeper than rap with them

Only one thing comes to mind. You’re a hater
