Kevin Durant spends quite a bit of time on social media. He's one of the most-active athletes on Twitter and seems to get himself into arguments with fans regularly.

Some think he's too sensitive to what fans say, while he thinks social media provides a platform for him to share his opinions.

Every now and then he sends something out he wishes he didn't. That was the case earlier this week when the Brooklyn Nets forward responded to a comment from Magic Johnson.

The Lakers legend said he just wants Durant to find happiness and that if he didn't find it in Golden State he's not sure Durant will every be happy.

It didn't take long for Durant to respond on Twitter. He said of Johnson's comments: "Horrible take. Just regurgitated bulls**t."

The tweet was up for a short period of time before Durant decided to take it down.

Johnson is hardly the first person to suggest Durant's move from Golden State won't bring him happiness. He was billed as the "other" in the Warriors locker room, and finally got out.

He'll likely miss the 2019-20 season with an Achilles injury. However, when the Nets take the court in 2020-21, they should be one of the best teams in the NBA.
