One Fan Had A Nasty Response To Kevin Durant At Team USA Practice Today

It has been two summers since Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder to join an already established super team in the Golden State Warriors. Some fans aren't over it yet.

Durant is in Las Vegas, participating in camp with Team USA.

According to The Athletic's Jovan Buha, he was greeted rather rudely by one basketball fan.

According to the report, when Kevin Durant got off the Team USA bus, a fan hissed at him.

There's been plenty of "snake" talk over the last few days surrounding Durant. He's fielded plenty of criticism for his move to the Warriors, and it hasn't really lightened up much two years later.

The fact that the Warriors have captured back-to-back titles, and Durant has won two straight NBA Finals MVPS, probably hurts him more than anything.

Earlier this week, Durant appeared on Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum's "Pull Up" podcast. After Durant blasted the Blazers' title chances on McCollum's own show, the young guard responded to a tweet by Barstool Sports' Dan Katz, and called Durant's 2016 free agency decision "soft."

Durant's comments on the show also drew an emoji-response from the Blazers' other star guard, Damian Lillard.

Durant had a quick response to the critical simile that McCollum used. Eventually, his representatives assured everyone that there is no real beef, and that Durant and C.J. are friends.

Either way, we're definitely excited to see Warriors-Blazers next year, even if some people, this Vegas-area fan included, are still not happy about Durant being in the Bay Area.
