Even though he’s from Oklahoma and often professes his fondness for the Thunder, ESPN’s Skip Bayless also routinely takes shots at Russell Westbrook for…taking too many shots. Well, apparently, Kevin Durant caught wind of this and has decided to fire back and defend his teammate. I wonder if this will change Skip’s view on Durant, who he loves (not quite as much as Tim Tebow, but you get my point). Here is Durant’s quote :
“That guy doesn’t know a thing about basketball,” Durant said of Bayless before the Thunder faced Memphis on Monday night.
“We’re worse when I take more shots,” Durant said. “Like I said, that guy doesn’t know a thing. I don’t think he watches us. I think he just looks at the stats. And traditionally, a point guard is not supposed to take more shots than everybody else on the team. But we’re better when he does do that and he’s aggressive. And I’m better when I’m out there facilitating, rebounding, defending and being more efficient on my shots with less shots.”
