Admission: I watch "First Take" almost every morning, and I am legitmately a fan of Skip Bayless. Yes he's well over the top, but there's certainly a serious market for a guy who says sh*t that everyone else isn't so much afraid to say as they don't want to. He's simulataneously the most rational and irrational talking head out there, but its a combination that works tremendously well with co-host Stephen A.
Sure, there are more than enough times when Skip crosses those oh-so touchy "lines." And as a result, he has a pretty impressive knack of getting the world irrationally pissed off at him. It's a role he thrives in perhaps just as much as he embellishes, and this tweet is simply the collateral damage. Durant has a point of course, but so does Bayless--when it comes to lifting, Durant is the twig to LeBron's 100 year oak. The weightroom is not the court, but only one came away with a ring this past year.
Embrace debate, fools.
