Video: Warriors’ Kevin Durant appears to call a fan the B-word in Utah
Twitter wars, burner accounts; you name it and Durant has done it.
But on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz, Kevin Durant may have gotten himself into some hot water with the league office for appearing to shout an expletive at a fan following a made free throw:

Now, it is entirely possible that this was all in good fun. Durant did not look overly agitated, so maybe he was just engaging in some innocent, playful trash talk with a fan.
But, the league may not see it that way, as it does not exactly condone players shouting derogatory comments at ticket buyers.
Whether or not Kevin Durant will face discipline from the NBA over this remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: the Warriors superstar is apparently never giving up his hobby of going back and forth with fans.
Entering Wednesday night’s action, Durant was averaging 28.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and one block over 35.6 minutes per game while shooting 51 percent from the floor, 35.8 percent from three-point range, and 93.2 percent from the free-throw line.
Kevin Durant is in his third season with the Warriors after signing with the team during the summer of 2016.
There has been rampant speculation that Durant, who will be a free agent this summer, will be playing elsewhere next season, but that remains to be seen.
