Speaking to ESPN, Kevin Durant recently spoke on the incredible about of hate (like, Lebron taking his talents to South Beach hate) that he now receives following his move from OKC to Golden State:

It is what it is, but I tell you one thing, all that stuff stays [online]. Nobody’s ever coming to me in my face and saying none of that. It’s jokes. Everybody is just waiting for it. If you really didn’t care [what I say], you wouldn’t even follow my tweets. So obviously you care about something. But what, I’m going to get mad at that? Hell nah.

That’s what kind of makes their day… Just being like, ‘Oh, I talked to one of my favorite basketball players [on social media]. Even though I hate him, but he’s still one of my favorites. I talked to a celebrity I really like but everybody else hates him, so I’m going to join in on the party.’ Everybody’s jumping on the waves. That’s just how it is.

It’s fun, man, because it’s entertainment. And I appreciate them letting us give them that opportunity, that experience. So if you want to heckle or if you want to cheer, as long as you’re getting a release from whatever is going on in your normal life, that’s cool. That’s what life is about. You have to take the good with the bad.
