Kevin Durant’s following on Twitter has more than tripled since the two-time NBA scoring champ arrived in Oklahoma City in July of 2008.
At the moment, he is roughly 40,000 followers short of 1 million, a mark reached by only eight other NBA players, two of whom are retired (Shaquille O’Neal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar).
A movement is afoot in Oklahoma to get @KDTrey5 to seven figures, asking all non-followers to start following.
KD helped put OKC on the NBA map, the least his fans could do is put him over the 1 million mark on Twitter.
Consider it a “Million Twitter March,” a connotation which Durant no doubt can appreciate, being born in Washington D.C.
