Philadelphia Sixers big man Joel Embiid is one of the most entertaining athletes to follow on social media, whether he's courting Rihanna, recruiting NBA stars to "Trust The Process," or simply interacting with fans and commenting on current sporting events.
So of course Embiid took the opportunity to troll Kevin Durant about his recent twitter folly. He even tagged @QuireSultan, which is allegedly the handle of Kevin Durant's secret Instagram account.
Charlotte Hornets forward, Frank Kaminsky and ESPN personality Jemele Hill also chimed in.
I actually like the idea of a burner twitter. Nobody has my back like I have my back.— Frank Kaminsky III (@FSKPart3) September 19, 2017
Hey, I'm the last person to judge KD about Twitter behavior 👀👀👀— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 18, 2017
Durant has been accused of managing secret burner accounts on social media after he, or someone who manages his official twitter account, mistakenly sent out some tweets regarding his former Thunder teammates and head coach. On Sunday night, a twitter user asked Durant to give "one legitimate reason for leaving OKC other than getting a championship," to which @KDTrey5 responded,
“He didn’t like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan. His roster wasn’t that good, it was just him and Russ.”
“Imagine taking Russ off that team. See how bad they were. KD can’t win a championship with those cats.”
Although the tweets were quickly deleted, the screen shots were already saved and speculation began regarding KD's use of secret social media accounts to defend himself.
KD has secret accounts that he uses to defend himself and forgot to switch to them when he was replying to this guy I'm actually speechless pic.twitter.com/9245gnpa3c— 🐗 1-1 / ✭ 1-1 (@harrisonmc15) September 18, 2017
Not long after that, more evidence surfaced suggesting Durant uses a secret Instagram account, which goes by the name @QuireSultan. Ironically, as pointed out by NBA Reddit, Quire and Sultan are the names of two streets nearby where Kevin Durant grew up in Maryland.
Check out the discoveries below.

I googled "quiresultan" and they're streets right next to each other in ... capitol heights, maryland, where KD grew up pic.twitter.com/Mur3eh2hyW— Tim Cato (@tim_cato) September 18, 2017
and yes, if this is KD's secret instagram, he has argued at people with it. (the "quiresultan" user name is supposedly him.) pic.twitter.com/3cYEVf788e— Tim Cato (@tim_cato) September 18, 2017
