 Kevin Durant: "Skip Bayless doesnít know a thing about basketball"

So, Kevin Durant took Skip Bayless to task.

Oh, what fun.

If you havenít heard yet, our man Darnell Mayberry asked the Thunder superstar before Monday nightís game what he thought of the ESPN commentator always bagging on teammate Russell Westbrook.

Durant seemed ready with his answer.

ďThat guy doesnít know a thing about basketball,Ē he said.

And Durant didnít seem to be fooliní around.

Now, the truth is Bayless knows a thing or two about basketball, but he clearly has a blind spot when it comes to Westbrook. He canít see that Westbrook is not a ďtraditional point guard.Ē

Well, let me rephrase that. I suspect he can see that about Westbrook, but he just canít accept it. He canít come to grips with the fact that heís every bit as likely to shoot as he is to pass. He just canít get over the fact that some games Westbrook is going to shoot more than Durant.

Durant doesnít seem to have a problem with it.

The other Boys in Blue donít seem to have a problem with it, either.

But good olí Skip does.

Thatís cool. Heís entitled to his opinion. Heís allowed to watch and ascertain and pontificate. But the facts just donít back him up.

The hang up Bayless has with Westbrook shooting more than Durant? The Thunder has a 20-4 record in games that Westbrook took more shots than Durant. That means in games where Durant takes more shots than Westbrook, including Mondayís 94-88 loss to the Grizzlies, the Thunder is 20-9. If youíre scoring at home ó ahem, Skip ó thatís a worse record.

Considering those numbers, Westbrook should be shooting more.

Durant seems to think so.

ďIím better when Iím out there facilitating, rebounding, defending and being more efficient on my shots with less shots,Ē he said.

Now, no one is suggesting that Durant needs to start turning down open looks. The guy is obviously one of the greatest scorers on the planet, and he needs to score and score a lot for the Thunder to win.

But you know what? Westbrook can score it a little bit, too.

There arenít too many players in the a.ssociation who can get to the rim like he can. And that little jumper at the free-throw line extended? Itís a thing of beauty. Why would the Thunder want him to start denying that part of his game?

Just like it would be silly for Durant to start turning down open looks, it would be equally silly for Westbrook not to use those skills.

Russell Westbrook will never be confused with John Stockton or Jason Kidd or even Chris Paul. Heís not a pass-first point guard. And frankly, the Thunder is just fine with that. In fact, it prefers Westbrook the way he is.

So does Kevin Durant.

Maybe itís time Skip Bayless came to terms with that.

Hereís guessing, though, he might have a slightly different reaction to what the Thunder star had to say.

Lebron is my favorite player..but I'm also a basketball fan 1st and foremost and Skip Bayless uses shock comments to generate ratings and media traffic..

it's clear as day..

I don't watch that show for the simple fact that he tries to hard to go against the grain..

Any sports analyst that praises Tim Tebow like the second coming of Christ and bashes the likes of leBron and westbrook can't be taken seriously..

you're a sucker if you actually take things skip says to heart. it's not that he doesn't know what he's talking about, it's that he deliberately says those things just to fu*k with people. if your blood pressure increases over his material or you take his opinion seriously, skip won .
