What happened on July 4th 2016?
Yardbarker claims that he has died since the July 4th of 2016 and that he was talking about the date he made his infamous decision to sign with the Golden State Warriors.
Speculations surrounding Steezys identity
When Kevin Durants signed for the Warriors, he suggested his legacy had died.
Congrats to the dubs and my son Steezy, a Fillmore legend, who was waiting his whole life for a market parade.
In a Reddit thread, a user asks about Steezy''s identity, and speculates on who it is.
Fillmore is a historically black area in San Francisco (before a lot of gentrification) so that he can discover a guy named Steezy from this area who is a huge Warriors fan.
Kevin Durant is likely to be just interested in being present at San Fransisco (on Market St.) rather than in Oakland, according to the user.
As the tweet suggests, some thought Steezy might be American professional basketball player Stephen Curry. This was debunked when a fan noted that he is not from the Fillmore area of San Francisco.
