KD out here using fake twitter accounts?
Kevin Durant, or whoever is in charge of running his official twitter account, forgot to switch over from the @KDTrey5 handle to a burner account before tweeting out criticisms of the Thunder organization, his former OKC teammates and former head coach, Billy Donovan.
Last night on twitter, someone 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.”
The since-deleted tweets weren't deleted quick enough and one twitter user theorized that KD actually has secret accounts which he uses to defend himself, and forgot to do so before replying last night.

Either that, or someone who has access to Durant's twitter account simply forgot to switch over to their personal account before responding. There's also some evidence that KD uses a secret Instagram account, which some hardworking internet sleuths unearthed and shared with everyone.

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

Naturally, twitter was quick to pick up on the social media gaffe before the tweets were deleted.
Check out some of the responses below.

I have a confession: This is a fake account. Kevin Durant has been running it since 2011. I'm sorry you had to find out this way.— Chris Towers (@CTowersCBS) September 18, 2017
