Kevin Durant did the right thing!
After yesterday’s Twitter debacle, instead of claiming to be hacked like every other celebrity has done when they ranted on Twitter…the NBA star admitted to his faults.
In a recent interview KD basically said that the only thing he regrets is mentioning his former coach’s name.
He referred to that specific action as “childish and idiotic”.
Watch the clip below and read the full script.
“I do have another Instagram account, but that’s just for my friends and family, so I wouldn’t say that I was using that to clap back at anybody,” he said, “but I use Twitter to engage with the fans. I think it’s a great way to engage with basketball fans, but I happened to take it a little too far. That’s what happens sometimes when I get into these basketball debates. What I really love is to just play basketball, and I went a little too far.
“I don’t regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter. I do regret using my former coach’s name and my former organization that I played for. That was childish, that was idiotic, all those type of words. I regret doing that, and I apologized to them for doing that, but I don’t think I’ll ever stop engaging with my fans. I think they really enjoy it, and I think it’s a good way to connect us all.
“But I will scale back a little bit right now and just focus on playing basketball, so I want to move on from that. It was tough to deal with yesterday. I was really upset with myself. I definitely want to move on and keep playing basketball, but I still want to interact with my fans as well.”
