Kevin Durant has a little advice for heckling college student: 'Get a...'

The barbs won't stop.

Even after Kevin Durant won an NBA title with the Warriors, fans won't let him forget that he left the Thunder to join the best team in the NBA.

On Saturday, a fan from New Zealand wondered if Durant was set to join his college team, which, according to him, started its season 7-0.

Durant clapped back, offering advice for the young man.

The fan wasn't done.

"What do we have to do? Be the most dominant team in the league and beat you the year before? Or do you want us to blow a 3-1 lead?" Twitter user Morgan Tiare wrote back.

Durant got the last word.

The NBA Finals MVP is clearly having fun responding to Twitter trolls this offseason.

Kevin Durant: 'Whoever did this should be fired and thrown in jail'

There are some people out there who are still extremely bitter about Kevin Durant leaving the Thunder for the Warriors.

An eighth grade Spanish teacher in Tulsa, Oklahoma issued a handout on the first day of school.

Part of it read:

DON'T BE A ... Kevin Durant
KD left the OKC Thunder last summer after falling to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. Following the end of the season, he decided it was in his best interest to join the very same team that had just knocked him out of the playoffs. Don't be like KD. Don't take the easy way out. Things like cheating, plagiarizing, and copying your friends homework may not seem like a big deal now but they are building habits that can significantly hinder you later in life. Additionally, always strive to finish what you've started. Half-finished homework is unfinished homework. Don't try to turn in an assignment if you have not done what is necessary and expected.

DO BE A ... Michael Jordan
MJ! The GOAT! 6 championships, 4 MVPs. Yadda yadda. The greatest thing this man ever did? Saving the Looney Tunes from a lifetime of servitude to an alien race. Did MJ take the easy way out? Did he ever back down from a challenge? NO! Be like Mike. Learning a new language is a challenging thing and parts of this year are going to be...

And then the words get cut off.

Well, Kevin Durant got wind of this and responded on Twitter:

If anything happens to this teacher, we will let you know...
