In high school, I took a Spanish class in which I learned that I would be called “Esteban” instead of Stephen. I took to calling myself Esteban the rest of the school year and also talked about myself in the third person:
“Esteban doesn’t eat personal pan pizza.”
“Esteban has entered the building.”
So I understand what Kevin Durant is going through. See, either Kevin Durant refers to himself in the third person (like I did in high school), or he forgot to log out of his actual Twitter account and into his ghost account before he started tweeting.
It all went down like this: A fan tweeted at KD asking why he left the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors.
To be fair, someone could have been posting from KD’s account, but even that would be strange, considering the response by the NBA Finals’ MVP.
Either KD is out here stamping his life in the third person or he meant to send that from another account he uses to defend himself.
But “KD” wasn’t finished. Shortly afterward, he tweeted:
You know what all of this means, don’t you? Conspiracy Twitter had a field day.
Hopefully there’s a good explanation for all this, but I think the one that makes the most sense is also the one that has Kevin Durant looking real goofy on these Twitter streets.
