Hide Transcript

- The bottom line is Kevin Durant is creating egg avatar Twitter accounts to argue with anonymous 17-year-olds on Twitter and I love it so much.

- Why--

NICK WRIGHT: I'm so happy that this is--

- --is this happening? What-- what is he doing?

- What's going on with these NBA players? Maybe it should be-- they didn't go to college long enough. I mean, their overall social skills-- now, Nick, I need help with social media.

NICK WRIGHT: Yeah.

- Now I got you helping me out. I got Angela, who runs all of our social here helping me out, like, this to me it's just so childish, all right.

NICK WRIGHT: Of course it's childish.

- Is this-- is it this generation or is it something with the NBA players that are different--

- What?

- --than the other professional athletes.

- Why we going macro? Why we going big picture-- making it about a whole league or a whole generation? Let's make this about Kevin Durant. Let's just make this--

- I mean, we just had a sensational interview with Kyrie Irving--

NICK WRIGHT: OK.

- --being disingenuous.

- That is-- listen, there is one thing to do a bad interview, it is another thing to fresh off your finals MVP, your most-- the best season of your life, theoretically, to decide I am going to go through the process of creating fa-- fake, secret Twitter accounts to argue with people on the internet. Now listen, I'm not above arguing with some strangers online, but I will do it--

ANNOUNCER: As Nick Wright.

- --as Nick Wright.

- Right.

- K-- KD seems to--

- How much money you think KD got right now?

- $322 million. I-- I-- you asked me a question, I answered it. Was that more precise than you would've expected?

- No, it just seems like a man is-- well, I-- I also see another rich guy arguing with people on Twitter too.

- OK, listen-- listen, I don't-- Kevin Durant, I think, mistakenly thought when he went to Golden State-- OK, all we got to do is win and I got to play great and then criticism will go away.

- No, "everyone will like me," that's what it seems like to me. KD wants to be liked.

- But he's literally going at it in the worst possible way. First, I thought maybe he wanted to change his image up, unpolish it a little bit, maybe a little bit more of a-- a little Dennis Rodman-esque, a little bad boy.

- A little dirty.

- Then I think, he-- he literally just doesn't know what he's doing, he's going the opposite way. So now he's hiding that account-- I can't tell if they want me to like him or not like.

NICK WRIGHT: I don't--

- It literally has confused me.

- I don't know that he knows the best way to go about it because-- and-- now listen, some-- I understand some people are like listen, this was obviously his social media manager who had the access to the account, who sent the tweet-- that would be 99% of NBA stars. If this story came out I would think, OK, someone was tweeting from their account, but here are-- here is the corroborating evidence. Piece one, Kevin Durant is known on his actual account to argue with random strangers, to-- to argue with people defending himself.

- Yes.

- Kevin Durant is known to release signature sneakers with internet comments on them. We have overwhelming evidence that Kevin Durant has a private Instagram account with which he-- he's used--

ANNOUNCER: Lot of evidence.

- --to argue with internet strangers.
