Kevin Durant has a history of emo Internet behavior.
At least in this latest instance he used his real name.
It all started when self-described "teenage basketball analyst" Kalyb Champion dropped this post on IG.

Durant quickly clapped back in Champion's DMs, calling him a "Middle school/knock off Stephen A. [Smith].

Durant's main gripe is that the kid tagged him in posts and then got defensive when he actually responded.
That's a fair point. But why's KD responding at all?
