He might be an NBA Finals MVP and NBA champion thanks to joining the Golden State Warriors, but Kevin Durant is also known for something else when it comes to social media: burner accounts.

It was a cool answer for the show (even if it has some grain of truth to it), but nobody actually believes the words coming out of your mouth, Kevin.
