Kevin Durant, who’s been called a snake ever since he signed with the Golden State Warriors, responded to his critics.
As reported by our very own Tomer Azarly on Twitter, Durant shared a photo of his new shoes which had the snake tongue emoji:

This is not the first time he has addressed the haters who have called him a snake. Last year, he revealed that he got a snake tattoo on his arm.
As reported by Kyle Boone of CBSSports.com:
“I get the snake comment so many times, I might just tattoo one of those on my arm,” Durant said.
Durant, one of most talented offensive players in NBA history, shocked the world when he moved to the Warriors, who previously finished with the best season in NBA history with a 73-9 record, back in 2016. It attracted loads of criticism, especially for a superstar caliber player of his kind.
Despite all of the hate, the former MVP continued to focus on improving his game. For the season, he’s logging in 26.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game. He also shoots 52 percent from the field, and 43 percent from downtown. What’s more impressive than his offensive numbers is his average of 1.9 blocks a game. Many believe that Durant will be part of the All-NBA Defensive Teams soon.
Currently, Durant is sidelined with a rib injury. Per Anthony Slater of The Mercury News, he is still healing from his injury:
Steph Curry probable for tomorrow. The other three All-Stars won't play. Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant healing. Draymond Green still sore, likely to practice Saturday, play Sunday.
