There aren't many who take on Kevin Durant on the basketball court and win. But apparently, the Warriors forward won't be beaten on social media either.

Durant receives plenty of criticism for moving to Golden State from Oklahoma City Thunder last summer, where he won the NBA championship in his first year alongside Stephen Curry.

He was named Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals, but he has not escaped criticism: Many claim he went to the Warriors in search of the championship, teasing him over leaving.

One Twitter user, with the handle @KelsoBall, messaged Durant. "Hey @KDTrey5," she wrote. "I named my dog after you and he left me. What's up with that?"

Durant's reply was swift:

you must be a piece of 💩 if a dog chooses to live in the streets instead of your house

Durant's summer has been quiet so far, reveling in the success of the NBA Finals when Golden State beat the Cavs 4-1. In Cleveland, however, the offseason has not been so smooth.
