DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki has weighed in on Kevin Durant's interactions with trolls on Twitter. 

Nowitzki was asked by Dan Patrick on his radio show if he had seen Durant's twitter exchanges ... and even though Nowitzki hadn't, he certainly knew all about them.

"I just think overall in general, I don't know why you would get engaged with fans talking trash," Dirk said. "I like actually having fun with it. I get hit up on Twitter every now and then in my mentions and people say, 'you're old, go away, retire...'

"To me, it's fun. You're not supposed to be sensitive about it. That's how I look at it. I'm not sure why KD feels the need to respond to some of the stuff because Twitter is just a place for tough guys and a lot of hate. I take it with a smile on your face, you can't take yourself too seriously."

Durant has a history of getting into with fans on Twitter. He's also created burner accounts to get into it with some.

Just recently, Durant got in a Twitter dispute with Blazers star C.J. McCollum and later argued with fans over the exchange.
