Haters are everywhere when it comes to Twitter. Every star athlete knows this because of all of the hate they get from opposing fans and even some fellow players. However, a fan — and apparent hater of Kevin Durant — took to the social media site to blast the Durantula in front of the Twitterverse. The subject of the criticism? His fianceé, Monica Wright.

This is pretty high praise of his WNBA counterpart and star guard. I’m not sure if the Oklahoma City Thunder will be too pleased that Durant is happy that his fianceé has won a title before him. It’s a pretty funny statistic, but you have to think that Durant was a little annoyed by some apparent Minnesota Lynx fan who took to the internet to call out the third-best player in the NBA.

First of all, Durant is, by far, the better overall basketball player. I know he was trying to be nice and say that she was the better player, but you know that had to be for publicity reasons. Winning scoring titles in the NBA is no joke and Durant is no stranger to them.

Secondly, it won’t be too long before the Thunder win a title and I know for a fact that Durant isn’t okay with the fact that his other half is winning rings before he’s ever won one. I can only guess that it’s eating him up inside.

Nice response though, Kevin.
