The Hate is Real For Kevin Durant Following His Move to the Golden State Warriors

Kevin Durant has widely been recognized as one of the most likable players in the NBA since joining back in 2007, and understandably so. He’s a great player who has never found himself in any drama on or off the court — really, everything a team could ask for in their superstar.

Well, this week, Durant’s title of most likable player has come crashing down with his announcement that he will be joining the Warriors next season. Mere hours after his decision — granted, a much less over-the-top one than LeBron James’ years ago — the internet was awash with memes, videos, and posts bashing the former MVP.

Shortly after finding out, many Thunder fans took a note from Cavaliers fans who, after hearing LeBron was going to Miami, set his jersey ablaze.

And it didn’t take long for the memes and mocking videos to come out, either.

It wasn’t just fans online who took part in the discussion, however. Professional sportscaster Stephen A. Smith delivered one of his patented rants, saying, “I’m viewing it as the weakest move I’ve ever seen from a superstar, plain and simple.”
