Much has been said about the entire Kevin Durant alternate Twitter account saga, with fans, media personalities and players alike all voicing their opinion on KD's social media antics. But now a former Golden State Warrior from the 2000's has had his say on Durant and his extra-curricular Twitter activities.

Stephen Jackson, a small forward who played with the Warriors between the years of 2007 and 2010, appeared on ESPN's The Jump to voice his opinion on the Warriors' starting small forward:

"I look at you now as I look at everybody else on Twitter and Instagram that has a little egg avatar. You are that person now. You cannot be excluded from that. Who creates a fake page? I'm the person, if I want to respond to somebody on social media, it has to come from my page with a verified check on it. He's an egg avatar now, I have no respect for him."

As you can tell from the above quote, the 39-year-old swingman definitely felt strongly about what Durant's been doing on social media lately.

Jackson's comments were in response to KD's apology regarding the whole situation after he was caught in the act replying to a hater on Twitter with his own verified account, via USA Today's Sam Amick:

"That was just me being a total (expletive) idiot. I own up to it. I want to move on from it. It probably hit me probably harder than what everybody thought. Everybody else was telling me to relax, to snap out of it, but I was really, really upset with myself more than anything."

Kevin is obviously feeling remorseful for his actions since winning the NBA championship, -- who knows, Durant could have been doing this since he joined the Warriors -- but it appears his image has been somewhat tarnished in the eyes of fans and former players beyond repair.
