Durant very amused by rhetorical question on Twitter about Rockets

Kevin Durant continues to speak his mind on social media.

The user "PATisDOPE" (has over 233,000 followers) tweeted the following:

"How you gonna defend Harden and Paul, the West is looking great I hate Golden State."

Kevin Durant channeled his inner Steph Curry, and responded with 10 "crying-because-I'm-laughing-so-hard" emojis.

The reason for the original tweet is because the Clippers and Rockets agreed to a trade that will send Chris Paul to Houston.

There's no doubt that the Rockets got better on Wednesday, but it's probably going to take a little time for Harden and Paul -- ball-dominant point guards -- to figure things out.

Ultimately, Houston's offense is going to be a handful.

And in case you were curious, "PATisDOPE" loves Durant but is not a fan of Draymond Green:

Report: Kevin Durant plans to sign 'later in the month'

Report: Kevin Durant plans to sign 'later in the month'

Don't expect Kevin Durant to re-sign soon after free agency opens.

The 2017 NBA Finals MVP plans to wait until the Warriors complete other moves first, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Free agency officially commences at 9:01pm PT on Friday, June 30 (which is tecnically July 1 on the east coast)

According to ESPN, Durant plans to re-sign "later in the month."

If you haven't heard already -- Durant will reportedly opt out, become a free agent and then re-sign with the Warriors for less than the max.

Why? Because he is willing to do what it takes to give Golden State the necessary resources to re-sign players such as Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

Iguodala is reportedly going to be a hot commodity on the open market.

But as Monte Poole wrote on Tuesday: "It won’t be easy to pry Iguodala away."

The two aren't exactly on speaking terms, yet.

Speaking of players who used to wear the same jersey...

Durant also congratulated James Harden, who finished runner-up to Westbrook.

"Shoutout my boy James Harden. For 5 years now he's taken his game to the next level, he will be an MVP one day, he's an MVP now, he's made so many people proud. I know this first hand, recognize what he has done for the game! "

Westbrook received 69 of the 101 first-place votes, while Harden finished with 22.

Durant, who may have finished in the Top 5 had he not injured his knee on Feb. 28, garnered just two fifth-place votes.
