The Mysterious Case of Kevin Durant’s Smoking Tweet

Twitter

A few hours after the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Nuggets 101-88 last night, a couple of curious Thunder related tweets popped up, only to be deleted.

First, Kevin Durant tweeted a photo of himself blowing smoke.

If one were to look carefully, the bottom of the picture reveals that Durant is merely smoking a hookah, but a first glimpse would conjure up images of a JR Smith-type of late night activity. For someone with a squeaky clean image like KD, it was an odd Tweet.

Within half an hour, the tweet was deleted, with Durant declaring his account was hacked.

Fans were skepical.

But then fellow Thunder Nick Collison quickly came to provide an alibi for Durant.

A couple hours later, Kendrick Perkins, he of the forever grumpy face, publicly insulted Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry, only to quickly delete the tweet.

PERK

So what happened? Did Perkins believe Mayberry hacked Durant’s phone? Or was he angry over Mayberry’s report of the game? And why was his tweet deleted? Was his phone hacked too?

A social media night with the Thunder…

He's smoking hookah. The cord is on the bottom right. That smoke isn't even that dense for shisha. Whether he put it up or not, oh well.. but probably isn't weed.

I don't know what he's smoking -- nor do I care -- but there's no way he would be so stupid as to post a picture on his own of him smoking weed.  


He's Kevin Durant, not J.R. Smith.

Have no opinion about the Durant thing-- the guy has the right to smoke Virginia Slims, if he so pleases. But Kendrick Perkins seems to be a total idiot 100% of the time, so Mayberry need not be a snake in the grass about that, Perkins should take his cruddy attitude and not let the door hit him on the way out.

Collison isn't the type to lie outright, so someone else probably did tweet that pic.

However, the pic itself is real.

However however, no one should still care.  Hookahs are often used to smoke flavored tobacco-free mixes, and even if it was tobacco, there's nothing scandalous about that.  The 30 and 40 point bombs Durant drops every night are pretty solid proof that the guy can't possibly smoke very often; a pro athlete can't perform like that if he has smoker's lung.

@x72 At what point has Durant every been a punk?  When he's been involved in youth programs? When he's conducted himself a like a gentleman and consummate professional on the floor?  When he contributed $1 million of his own money to Oklahoma tornado victims?  When, exactly, has he been a punk?

Durant is as 'boy-scout' as pro athletes come, you stooge.  


A clue, get one.
