Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the NBA. That is a fact. Skip Bayless is one of the biggest trolls to ever walk the face of the earth. That is also a fact. Combine the two together and you get a lot of fun from an incident.
See, KD is pretty good friends with LeBron James. They are supposed to be rivals, but having two guys that enjoy playing against each other and helping each other is fine in my book. Well, my book doesn’t sync up with Bayless, so Bayless took to Twitter to go after KD by saying that LBJ “owns” him. Durant responded with this classic.
@realskipbaylessu brainwashing these people out here, they think since you on espn you know what u talkin bout…please, nobody owns me

I can get used to athletes doing this to Bayless. He is always spouting off about this and that. He is never backing up his opinion. He just shouts it out a lot louder than everyone else while never facing the argument heads up. If he can find a way to attack your argument, that is more power to him. At least be straight up about it.
I expect this will lead to Bayless wanting Durant to come on First Take and debate him but I doubt that happens. Athletes just plain do not like Bayless. The guy is all an act and it is seriously starting to wear on people. Please don’t feed the troll.
