Doris Burke got some criticism after her somewhat awkward interview with Kevin Durant, and have to say that a lot of this is probably not warranted. Calling her a “bi**h”? Just a little too far folks.

Okay, I get why some people are miffed about this, because it involves the hot button topic of religion but she seems to be more guilty of bad interviewing than anything else. The reason she laughed at Durant’s comment is just because of the different stratosphere his game has been at lately, and have been completely blown away by how the forward has improved in the last year.
Sometimes you need to see if you can walk in another’s shoes before you criticize them. Burke was a basketball star at Providence College, and she is a talented and smart analyst with bright future. Think that is all for today, but might even hit you with a piece because of an adorable tweet from Sir Patrick Stewart lately. Some fortune cookie wisdom in case you missed out Rant Sports Prep edition.
