His followers, who seem to be not rooting for King Kong, left several comments on his post.
One fan joked that Godzilla never loses, as the lizard-like creature only needs to hit cryo-chamber once it feels something painful.
Kevin Durant then hit back and said, "He definitely needs to be load managed. He's been at it for a century."
Meanwhile, another fan noted that Godzilla has superpowers. The Twitter user then referred to King Kong as "a monkey" before suggesting that the battle should end with King Kong in the middle of blue fire.
"From the trailer, Godzilla was wreaking havoc In the water and on land. This looks like a landslide," Durant replied to another internet user who suggested using electric wires to kill the gigantic dinosaur-like creature.
In his latest tweet about the movie, he responded to one of his followers who brought up the theory about Mechagodzilla pretending to be Godzilla.
"I also heard that Godzilla is originally 984 ft tall and they had to make him 300 feet tall to make this an even matchup," Durant jested.
