The NBA world flew into a tizzy on Monday when it was revealed that Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant has been using fake online identities to argue with haters on Twitter and Instagram.

Now Sixers big man Joel Embiid, the reigning King of NBA Twitter, has weighed in on the subject. And as usual, he’s cracking people up.

Their theory? KD uses a fake account to defend himself online, but he sometimes forgets to switch over from his official public account.


A little while later, NBA reddit discovered that KD has an alternate Instagram account, too, and that, yes, he uses it to argue with people who talk sh*t about him.



Obviously, the idea that one of the most famous professional athletes in the world would undertake the Sisyphean task of personally responding to online critics is hilarious. So yeah, everyone started making fun of KD when all this blew up. Including Joel Embiid.

Here’s what he had to say:

Now, if only Embiid could bring some of that winning to the basketball court…
