It has been over a year since Kevin Durant decided to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder to be with the Golden State Warriors. He already played one season for Golden State, captured his first NBA championship, and was named the Finals MVP. Despite this, a lot of fans are still furious because of the career move he made last summer. They label him as a traitor and is being called a snake. In a recent episode of First We Feast's Hot Ones, the Warriors superstar spoke about the snake comments he is receiving.

According to Durant, he "got the snake comment so many times" that he might end up getting a tattoo of it on his arm.

The statement by the 28-year-old shows that he continues to accept the role of the villain. When he signed with Golden State in July of 2016, many fans were upset with him and the franchise. Some started to look at them as the villains in the NBA for having too much star power on one squad. In the end, the Warriors were the ones laughing after winning their second championship in the last three seasons.

Durant addresses criticisms

In Durant's time on Hot Ones, he also commented on the hate thrown at him through social media. The eight-time All-Star admits that he cannot stand criticisms about his game. It is likely the reason why in the past, he had some exchanges with fans calling him out on Twitter.

The Warriors forward said he wants these people to "feel stupid."

Strength in Numbers

The Warriors have been using the "Strength in Numbers" mantra even before acquiring Durant last year. However, this did not stop Durant from honoring his team's battle cry in the past few seasons. The latest colorway of his signature shoe is called "Numbers." This version of the KD10 is the first (basketball) signature model that will feature a team logo.

The Warriors' insignia is on the tongue, and the outsole (together with the KD symbol). In photos circulating on social media, the inside of the shoe also has the colors (blue and yellow) of Golden State.

It is a great gesture from Durant who has spent just one year so far with the Warriors.

The good news for the team's fans is that he is guaranteed to stay for a few more seasons. Earlier in the off-season, Durant inked a two-year extension deal with the Dubs that is going to make him $53 million richer. He took a pay cut to keep the team's core in tact. The discount the Warriors got from his contract allowed them to sign Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala.
