Kevin Durant and his business partner, Rich Kleiman, spoke about their investments in various Silicon Valley companies at Tuesday’s TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, but not before the Golden State Warriors star attempted to explain his recent social media snafu.
On Monday, a Twitter user posted images of deleted tweets from Durant’s account that were critical of Durant’s former teammates in Oklahoma City and Thunder Coach Billy Donovan.
I think they really enjoy it and I think it’s a good way to connect us all, but I’ll scale back a little bit right now and just focus on playing basketball.
The deleted tweets in question were in response to a fan who wanted Durant to provide “one legitimate reason” for leaving the Thunder to sign with the Warriors last summer.
“He didn’t like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan,” one of the tweets from Durant’s account read, apparently speaking of himself in the third person.
