Skip Bayless had some choice words for Kevin Durant via Twitter, to which Durant responded in kind. I'm beginning to think that we need a special term for what good ol' Skip does, because it is an inanity all its own. It is the kind of faux-provocative term that makes us all feel dummer for even entertaining it. Suggestions are welcome.
No disrespect to Ms. Carlson, but this is the kind of thing that gets written during the long off-season. In the words of Michael Cera, "Impossible is the Opposite of Possible." You have to push yourself. Take it to the limit. Meet the extreme.
If you follow the work of Zach Lowe (and if you read this space, you know we do actively) then you also know that he is departing SI to join Simmons' team at Grantland. Strangely enough, that gives Grantland 2 bona fid NBA experts (Sebastian Pruiti is the other) that kind of undermines the one thing that Simmons writes exceptionally well - the NBA.
