Throughout his career, Kevin Durant has earned a reputation for taking to social media to engage in discussions with fans.
The Phoenix Suns superstar now seems to have his sights set on a new social media platform: Threads.
Instagram’s parent company Meta recently launched the social platform. It quickly gained popularity with approximately 30 million users having signed up for the app as of Thursday morning, according to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

In many ways, Threads works similar to Twitter. Durant has frequently used Twitter to push back against fans and even trolls who criticize him.
At one point, he apparently used a prepaid account to defend himself.
KEVIN DURANT INVADES TWITTER CHAT, RIPS FANS DISCUSSING HIS RATING: ‘HOW YOU CONSUME THE GAME IS GARBAGE’
On Thursday, Durant appeared to jokingly invite fans to follow him “in threads with the burner.”
“On threads with the burner. Come find me,” Durant wrote.
Durant didn’t look serious. And, given his track record, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to believe that he at least considered creating a prepaid account.
Late last month, the 13-time All-Star couldn’t resist the urge to jump into a Twitter Spaces discussion, “Kevin Durant is not in the top 5.”
After joining the audio-only platform, Durant expressed his displeasure with the way basketball games are “consumed” by some fans.
“I just think the way they look at the game is amazing,” Durant said in a recorded clip of the session.
“You take into account the success of the team when you talk about the players. I just think that the way they consume the game is rubbish, like are you good or not?”
Durant added that, from his point of view, NBA player ratings are meaningless.
“I mean, some things could be that simple. Are you good or nah? I mean, a lot of people have seen it for a long time bro, and it’s okay. These lists don’t really mean anything anyway, so why Are you so upset about them?”

Durant was the second overall pick in the NBA draft in 2007. He spent eight seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder before leaving and joining the Warriors.
After winning two NBA titles with the Warriors, Durant left Golden State to play for the Brooklyn networks. In February, he was traded to the Suns. He hasn’t made it to the NBA Finals since he left the Warriors.
