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.

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.
