About Kevin Durant

In 2017, Kevin Durant was crowned NBA Finals MVP when his Golden State Warriors won their second championship in three years. Kevin took fans along on the journey in the YouTube docu-series Still KD, gaining 540K+ YouTube subscribers in the process. KD’s always been known to speak his mind, but this year the 8-time All-Star got caught using a fake Twitter account to argue with haters when he forgot to log out of his official account while doing it! His 17M+ followers didn’t seem to mind—@KDTrey5 is the second most followed NBA player in the league. The future Hall-of-Famer also gave in and joined Instagram in August, already netting 9M+ followers by posting everything from practices to pics of the team travelling and doing community service.
