Kevin Durant has been known to spar with random fans on social media, particularly during the offseason. His burner-account incident hasn't changed that … neither has a second NBA Finals MVP, apparently.

On Tuesday, Durant took issue with an Instagram post from the account, bucketscenter, which is run by teenager Kalyb Champion.

Champion had posted a photo of Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis with the caption, "3 elite two way players but don't elevate a team quite like LeBron and Steph due to their playmaking/leadership deficiencies."

Durant was tagged in the post and jumped into Champion's comments.

Durant wrote:

"Bruh go sweep ya dorm room, u don't know hoops. Stop tagging me in this trash"

The Warriors star evidently wasn't done. Champion would later post screenshots of direct messages from Durant's account. Durant called Champion a "middle school/knock off stephen a." When Champion called Durant insecure, Durant continued the argument. (Multiple photos in the Instagram post)

Nothing gonna stop me from achieving my dream now @kevindurant

Durant eventually apologized for his Stephen A. Smith remark, but there's still no reason for Kevin Durant to waste time and energy engaging every Instagram post that offends him. He's an NBA superstar, and there will be fans who dislike him for no reason at all.

It's a pointless exercise for Durant to argue every perceived slight to his basketball career in Instagram comments and DMs.

Plus, there are definitely more enjoyable ways to spend a post-championship offseason.
