Kevin Durant's old tweets have been dug up and they're very entertaining

Kevin Durant's future is dominating the NBA realm right now. The 2014 Most Valuable Player is set to make his decision on Monday before the moratorium period ends on July 7 and he can officially sign on the dotted line.

The Oklahoma City Thunder man has had meetings with the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, L.A. Clippers, Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and his former team, while also being courted by Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks. His decision is the biggest since LeBron James opted to take his talents to South Beach in 2010.

During the wait for where he will play next season, some impatient fans have been wading through Durant's Twitter history and pulling up some absolute comedy gold from as far back as 2009.

This is not a new trend, there are many people who will spend their time trudging through thousands of tweets just for a good laugh. And whoever did this, we salute you. Some of KD's tweets from his early 20s are absolutely brilliant. See the best of them below.

After all of that, this seems pretty fitting. 

Durant's demeanour on social media has changed somewhat since those days. With the media spotlight now firmly on his every move, the small forward has taken a much more professional approach. However, it does not mean we can't appreciate the hilarity of a young star looking to make his way in the NBA world.

Of course, the 27-year-old is no longer that young man and he has a huge decision on his hands. The Thunder did all they can to convince Durant he can achieve his title dream with them. They came within a whisker of overcoming the Golden State Warriors but sacrificed a 3-1 advantage in the Western Conference Finals.

Their trade for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the draft rights to Domantas Sabonis in exchange for Serge Ibaka also proved they were forward-thinking and, with Russell Westbrook a year away from free agency, Durant may be inclined to give a title shot with the franchise one more chance.

The Thunder are certainly a contender again next season and his relationship with Westbrook cannot be understated. There is even a suggestion that the two could sync up their contract and seek a new challenge as a duo in 2017.

Having come so close to reaching the NBA Finals this year and falling to the Miami Heat at the last hurdle in 2012, KD may feel there is unfinished business at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The front office has wasted no time in getting their plans together for next season and the trade for Oladipo certain shows that. They were crying out for more of a perimeter threat last season and the shooting guard offers that while also being explosive inside.
