Kevin Durant is a strange character. Despite all his skills, his personality is perhaps the most relatable for most fans. KD is, after all, a bitter and mean man on social media who does whatever his heart pleases. It’s something that, despite the clear pettiness, is so entertaining for fans.
In fact, not all his tweets are conflict-oriented but most of them are entertaining regardless. Recently, Durant chose to share his top 5 albums of the year. The list was impressive and included the likes of I Never Liked You by future and Her Loss by Drake and 21 Savage.

After coming across his list, Serge Ibaka decided to slyly promote his own album. The move surprisingly worked on Kevin Durant.

When Durant listed his best albums of the year, Ibaka immediately swooped in and asked KD why his album wasn’t on the list. Maybe this made the Slim Reaper curious.
Hey easy money! How can you forget to put ART on ? Lol https://t.co/3Te1OaRDEn

He listened to Serge’s album soon after his OKC teammate’s tweet. The album must have impressed him because he came back and responded by sharing a classic Shaq meme. Durant followed up by confessing to Serge that he was now locked in and listening to the album.

Perhaps this was a sweet gesture from Kevin Durant. The Superstar likely knew about the current feud going on between Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins.
It all began when Perkins insulted the 6ft 10″ center by claiming he was 30 back in 2012-13 while on ESPN’s hot take. Soon after, Ibaka lashed out at Kendrick for demeaning him in this manner on national TV. He clarified his stance and accused Perkins of feeding on rumors.
Hey @KendrickPerkins, I count my blessings every day and I don’t usually react to comments about me. But It’s disappointing to hear someone I shared a locker room with spreading misinformation to be relevant and get views on TV and social media. https://t.co/MRdXJwGpJZ

At first, Perkins was apologetic and justified his statement by calling it a joke. However, he completely backtracked moments later and displayed his anger at being called out.
